-Feast of Passover or Pesach March 31, 2018-
Pesach commemorates God’s deliverance of Israel out of Egypt. Also Pesach (PAY-sahk) means to “passover.” Hence the Pesach meal, seder (SAY der), commemorates the Israelites’ deliverance from slavery in Egypt. The Lord sent Moses to lead the children of Israel from Egypt to the Promised Land. When first confronted by Moses, Pharaoh refused to let the people go. After sending nine plagues, the Lord said the firstborn males of every house would die. Only the blood of a perfect Lamb could stop the death.
