Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on
which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.
Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and
make preparations for us to eat the Passover."
"Where do you want us to prepare for it?"
He replied, "As you enter the city, a man carrying
a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the
house that he enters, and say to the owner of the
house, 'The Teacher asks: Where is the guest
room, where I may eat the Passover with my
disciples?' He will show you a large upper room,
all furnished. Make preparations there."
They left and found things just as Jesus had told
them. So they prepared the Passover.
Luke 22:7-13 (NIV)
Tell the whole community of Israel that on the
tenth day of this month each man is to take a
lamb for his family, one for each household. If
any household is too small for a whole lamb,
they must share one with their nearest
neighbor, having taken into account the
number of people there are. You are to
determine the amount of lamb needed in
accordance with what each person will eat.
The animals you choose must be year-old
males without defect, and you may take them
from the sheep or the goats. Take care of
them until the fourteenth day of the month,
when all the people of the community of
Israel must slaughter them at twilight. Then
they are to take some of the blood and put it
on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the
houses where they eat the lambs.
Exodus 12:3-7 (NIV)
Then the LORD said to Moses, "I will rain down
bread from heaven for you. The people are to go
out each day and gather enough for that day…
When the dew was gone, thin flakes like frost on
the ground appeared on the desert floor. When
the Israelites saw it, they said to each other,
"What is it?“For they did not know what it was.
Moses said to them, "It is the bread the LORD has
given you to eat.
Exodus 16:4, 14-15 (NIV)
Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, it is
not Moses who has given you the bread from
heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the
true bread from heaven. For the bread of God
is he who comes down from heaven and gives
life to the world.“ Then Jesus declared, "I am
the bread of life. He who comes to me will
never go hungry, and he who believes in me
will never be thirsty.
John 6:32-33, 35 (NIV)
"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man
remains in me and I in him, he will bear much
fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
John 15:5 (NIV)
