Seder Meal at church last night to celebrate our deliverance from bondage

The lamb of God takes away the sin of the world

Seder Meal at church and what the pamphlet says – 27 prophecies fulfilled.

Last night at church, we had a seder meal, something I had only heard of but had never experienced. The speaker, a Messianic Jew, led us through the different steps of the meal, which was part of the celebration of Passover. While some elements were part of the original celebration meal, others were added. The meal was full of symbolism for both Jews and Christians.

The meal was not what either Karen or I expected. On the table in front of us was a cup of grape juice, a cup of water, and a tray in the middle of the table with parsley, salt water, horseradish, apple and walnut mixture, matza bread, and boiled eggs. Each item had special significance and meaning, which the speaker revealed, each related to God’s deliverance of Israel out of Egypt and being protected by the blood of the lamb on the doorposts.

We, as Christians, have been delivered from the slavery of sin and death, again protected by the blood of the Lamb. The foods represented the bitterness of bondage, the fact that they had to leave Egypt quickly (matza bread, with no yeast).

Thank you, Jesus, for being the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.

  1. I have never been to a Seder but have always wanted to. Not only is there rich symbolism for we Christians who were delivered by Jesus, Lamb of God, who’s blood was shed to free us, but Jesus, Mary, Joseph, the disciples and Paul were all Jews and would have had this meal each year. It would be interesting to share their tradition. (I wonder if they make gluten free matza bread.)
