Jesus is Our Passover

Jesus is Our Passover
Matthew 26:17-29

17 Now on the first day of Unleavened Breadthe disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Where will you have us prepare for you to eat the Passover?” 18 He said, “Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.’” 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they prepared the Passover. 20 When it was evening, he reclined at table with the twelve. (Matthew 26:17-20 ESV)

The Passover Meal

  • The lamb

  • Bitter herbs

 21And as they were eating, he said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.” 22 And they were very sorrowful and began to say to him one after another, “Is it I, Lord?” 23 He answered, “He who has dipped his hand in the dish with me will betray me. 24 The Son of Man goes as it is writtenof him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.” 25 Judas, who would betray him, answered, “Is it I, Rabbi?” He said to him, “You have said so.”(Matthew 26:21-25 ESV)

  • Matzah

6 Say therefore to the people of Israel, ‘I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from slavery to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great acts of judgment. 7I will take you to be my people, and I will be your God, and you shall know that I am the LORD your God, who has brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.(Exodus 6:6-7 ESV)

  1. I will bring you out from under the burdens.
  2. I will rescue you from slavery.

Jesus is the bread of life. He brings forth life, but He does this through His death.  24 Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. (John 12:24 ESV)

The Third Cup – redemption  (I will redeem you with an outstretched arm.)

26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessingit broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” 27 And he took a cup, and when he had given thankshe gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”(Matthew 26:26-29 ESV)


I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. (John 14:3 ESV)
