the name of Jesus Christ
the Old Testament people brought sheep to give them as a sacrifice
in order that sins are forgiven from God. According to the Jewish
Law these sheep must be perfect and without blemish to be acceptable
in the New Testament things have changed. When John the Baptist saw
Jesus coming towards him, He said, quote: Joh 1:36 And looking
upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
was this Lamb of God without blemish and complete, who came to take
upon Himself the sins of all humanity and to nail them upon the cross.
He is also our Passover lamb (Pesach) that is slain for us.
As we approach this upcoming Passover Day, let us always remember
the price, which Jesus paid on the cross and celebrate this day as
it is written in 1Co 5:7-8 Purge out therefore the old leaven,
that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our
passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not
with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness;
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. es
