How does the Passover point to Jesus? Is it just a Jewish holiday, or does it have meaning to believers in Jesus today? Join Dr. Brown as he talks about the prophetic significance of passover!
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: There ought to be no separation between Passover and Easter on our calendars; and where there is a separation, let the church join with the Jewish community and celebrate the Passover season, the death and resurrection of Jesus season–along with the Jewish Passover, unleavened bread calendar. And let us emphasize not Easter egg hunts, but the death and resurrection of the Messiah, and within the context of the Passover let us provoke the Jewish people to jealousy by showing them not only was there redemption from Egypt, but there is redemption from sin and death. The Messiah has come, and He will come again, in accordance with the Scriptures.
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Jesus’ death and resurrection must be central. If you are able to do that in conjunction with the Passover season and incorporate that into the Jewish calendar, all the better. It has biblical roots, and it will further identify our faith with the Jewish people, and perhaps even more, provoke the Jews to jealousy. If the Good Friday, Resurrection Sunday schedule is sacred to you, as long as Jesus is central and He is exalted, and as long as you do not separate that in your thinking from the Passover and your Jewish roots, so be it! Hold to Jesus, hold to your roots, and move forward!
