Image of Passover Holy Days - 7th Day Congregation Eddy

Passover is celebrated on the 14th of the first lunar month of the year and is a memorial of when our Messiah died on the tree as a redemption for all the sins of the world. “29 next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29 The first Passover is found in Exodus the 12th chapter where the Israelite people, just before leaving Egypt, placed the blood of a sacrificed lamb on the door posts of their homes to prevent the first born of their family from dying. Our Messiah is the first born of Mary and also the first born of many in the spirit. “29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.” Romans 8:29 After having a lamb without blemish sacrificed annually from that first time in Egypt until 70AD when the Romans destroyed the Temple, we now observe Passover remembering the blood and body of our Messiah that was sacrificed for our sin. Since He was the perfect sacrifice, we no longer need to sacrifice animals. “12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but He entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption.” Hebrews 9:12

Our Passover services are held the beginning of Passover day in the evening.  It includes the eating of a small piece of unleavened bread, a small sip of wine, and foot washing.  1 Corinthians 11:23-27; Matthew 26:17-30; John 13
