The Festival of Passover (Leviticus 23:4-8)
• Regularity: God’s people preserve their spiritual heritage through memorials (23:4)
• Ritual: God’s people commemorate their deliverance from bondage (23:5)
• Reenactment: God’s people remove corruption from their lives (23:6-8)
Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened.
For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.
Therefore let us keep the Festival,
not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness,
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
(1 Corinthians 5:7-8)
The Fulfillment of Passover (1 Corinthians 5:7-8)
• Lord’s Supper: Christians celebrate the fulfillment of Passover in Communion
• Salvation: Christ delivered us from our bondage to sin.
• Sanctification: Christ’s sacrifice should motivate us to holy living.
God’s people regularly
remember and reenact their redemption,
motivating their holy living.
