Passover or Pesach (פסח) Day 1: Second Seder

March 28

Passover (Hebrew: פֶּסַח Pesach) commemorates the story of the Exodus. In the story, YHVH helps the Israelites escape from slavery in Egypt by inflicting ten plagues upon the Egyptians. The last of the plagues was the death of the first-born sons of any in the land that did not place lambs blood on the door. The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a slaughtered spring lamb. Upon seeing the blood, the spirit of YHVH knew to pass over the first-born in these homes. After the death of his son, the Pharaoh releases the Israelite slaves. By celebrating this holy day, we remember that Christ gave his live that we might live.

“Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of  the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the LORD to be observed of all the children of Israel in their generations. And the LORD said unto Moses and Aaron: This is the ordinance of the Passover… All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.” -Exodus 12:40-43, 47
