Transcript of "The Passover"

  1. 1. T HE P ASSOVER The Festival of Unleavened Bread Jade Gusman Mrs. Beth Andrade First Quarter Project October 2nd 2009
  2. 2. 10/2/2009 THE PASSOVER The Passover is a Jewish tradition that celebrates the emancipation from slavery in Egypt. It is also the precursor of many Christian traditions. In Numbers 9:11, it says that Moses gives Gods instructions to the Israelites as to how and when to celebrate Passover. The people were to follow all of Gods laws. God also revealed the consequences of refusing to celebrate Passover. God gave instructions to Moses and Aaron requiring the Passover lamb or goat to be perfect with no blemish. The sacrificial blood must never be offered with bread that has yeast in it, thus beginning the unleavened bread "communion", or matzo, as it is known as in the Passover Sedar. God also gave instructions to paint the doorways of the Israelites houses with the young calf's blood so that the angel of death could "Pass Over". The sign of moving the hand down and across to paint the door also was a precursor to the cross on which Jesus gave his own blood. When God passed through the blood served as a sign that god will pass over you and the plague will not touch the Israelites when he strikes Egypt. In Exodus 12: 46 it also states a rule that all who eat the lamb must eat it together in one house. You must not carry any meat outside and you may not break any of the animals' bones. The whole community 2
  3. 3. 10/2/2009 must celebrate this festival at the same time. They were not allowed to leave any of the roasted lamb until the next day. Whatever is not eaten that night must be burned and buried before the morning. The Passover and Festival of Unleavened Bread were to be kept permanently by the Israelites to remind them of how God brought them out of slavery in Egypt. They have a reading called the Haggadah which tells them what do during the Passover. It has all the rules, lists of food. During the Passover, a special plate is set which includes, celery, which symbolizes the coming of spring, a boiled egg which symbolized the breaking out of Egypt, bitter herbs that symbolized the bitterness the Israelites suffered while in Egypt. A lamb shank, the main Passover food. (Meat was sacred in ancient times), They also had Charoses / Charoset, which was a mixture of apples, cinnamon, raisins, wheat and sugar. It symbolized the sweet nectar that was in the Promised Land that God gave them. They ate all these things with flat unleavened bread, called Matzo / Matza. During the Passover, Yeast was not to be eaten and could not even be in the house.
