“Obey these instructions as a lasting ordinance for you and your descendants. When you enter the land that the LORD will give you as he promised, observe this ceremony. And when your children ask you, ‘What does this ceremony mean to you? then tell them, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice to the LORD, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when he struck down the Egyptians.'” Then the people bowed down and worshiped. The Israelites did just what the LORD commanded Moses and Aaron. (Exodus 12:24-28)

In this photo taken in 1949, children at an Israeli kindergarten celebrate the Passover seder ceremony, the first Passover held in the new state of Israel. God’s deliverance certainly showed then, just as it did in the biblical Exodus story. And His people continue to celebrate His deliverance to this day. May our Jewish friends have a blessed rest of Passover, and Happy Easter to our Christian friends.
