  • There are two prophets mentioned in Revelation
    and it is believed by many that one of them is
  • Hallel singing of praise songs
  • 4 Questions asked first and most famous
    question is Why is this night different from all
    other nights? even more compelling with Christ

    question to his disciples on the eve of his
    arrest and trials

Passover and Crucifixion
  • The Old Testament is Christ concealed and the
    New Testament is Christ revealed.
  • The Passover lamb was customarily slain at 300
    PM on Passover and the shofar (rams horn) was
    blown Jesus said it is finished on the cross
    at 300 PM on Friday.
  • The three matzahs in the Passover Seder meal
    which are a symbol for Father, Son and Holy
    Spirit the middle matzah was broken Jesus
    broke the middle matzah and said, This is my
    body, broken for you.
  • Leaven (yeast) is a symbol of sin and Jesus who
    removes the leaven is our sin-bearer
  • The middle matzah is striped and pierced just as
    Jesus was striped and pierced.

Passover and Resurrection
  • The matzah later in the Passover Seder is then
    wrapped in a white cloth and linen, just as
    Christ is wrapped in linen and laid in the tomb.

    larger piece is called afikoman which means
    comes later
  • The Afikoman is hidden, or buried to be found
    later on for a reward.
  • The Festival of Unleavened Bread starts at sunset
    at which the Jews would take some of the grain
    the first fruits of the harvest to the Temple
    to offer as a sacrifice.
  • The priest would wave the sheaf brought as the
    firstfruits of grain on the day after the Sabbath
    (Leviticus 23 10)
  • The lamb was sacrificed on the day after the
    Sabbath (Leviticus 2311)
  • Jesus was in the grave and rose up from the dead
    as the firstfruits of them that slept (1 Cor.
