  • Passover, The Lord’s Supper, and The Jewish Seder

Join us for this six week Bible study as we explore the development of the Passover meal from the time of Moses, from the time of Christ, and on up to the Jewish modern day celebration.  We will look into the God ordained feast of Passover that ultimately delivered the Israelites from Egyptian bondage.  We'll discuss what Jesus fulfilled in the Lord's Supper in the Upper Room and then participate in an actual Seder demonstration as we examine the Passover symbols that point to the Passover Lamb, Jesus Christ.  Hosted by Dave Eskoff and Don Kearley in the music room.
