4,000 years ago, a momentous meal took place
Why should Passover, a Jewish holiday, matter to Christians? Because it mattered to Jesus. It was at a traditional, Jewish Passover meal after all, that Jesus and his disciples were together for the last time and it was there that our cherished ritual of Communion originated. By exploring the customs and story surrounding the Jewish Passover, you’ll have an increased appreciation and understanding of the culture in which Jesus lived and taught. And after learning about the spiritual heritage we share with Judaism, you may even be moved to integrate an authentic Jewish Passover Seder into your own preparation for Easter.
