Reminder: Our 2017 calendar is still valid as Spring starts on March 20th this year. If you are a new reader, browse the links in this post to learn about Passover and understand why we should celebrate it as Christians.
Passover begins at sundown on April 3rd this year.
Last year, we created a Passover calendar that specifically marks the first 15 days of Abib which is the Hebrew month that Passover was to be celebrated. We highly encourage you to reference that calendar so you can have a better understanding of the days and how they are counted.
The Christian should understand, we do not use blood on this day, Jesus Christ was the Lamb that was slain for us. It was Christ who became our Passover Lamb, (1 Corinthians 5:7).
On Passover, we will honor and remember Jesus Christ by taking Communion as He has instructed us, (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). We will provide a post on April 3rd to celebrate that great sacrifice by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
If you would like to learn more about Passover and what it means for the Christian, we encourage you to read our Bible study titled, “Jesus Christ Became Our Passover Lamb“.
