How do Jewish people celebrate Passover?
Here's the answer:
Passover celebrates God’s protection of His people and how He freed them from being slaves.
Jewish people celebrate the festival of Passover in the spring, often near our Easter. This festival is talked about in Exodus 12-14 and also in Leviticus 23. Passover refers to the time in ancient Egypt when the Death Angel passed over the Jewish homes and struck the homes of the Egyptians, taking the life of the oldest son.
This holiday lasts for eight days. Jewish people have a big dinner called a Seder. At this meal, they may sing, recite Scripture, and read the booklet that takes the family through the meal called a Haggadah. The focus of the first Passover was the lamb (Exodus 13:8), but on today's Jewish table the unleavened bread, or matzah, takes center stage.
A series of four questions are asked during this time, all beginning with question, "Why is this night different from all other nights?" The first question is “Why on this night do we eat matzah? Why on this night do we eat the bitter herb? Why do we dip twice? Why on this night do we eat reclining?”
Passover is a rich holiday that ultimately speaks of the Lord Jesus. He was the Lamb and He died at Passover, was buried, and rose again the third day for us!
"The blood on your houses will be a sign for you. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. No deadly plague will touch you when I strike Egypt. Always remember this day. For all time to come, you and your children after you must celebrate this day as a feast in honor of the LORD" (Exodus 12:13-14).
"Your children will ask you, ‘What does this holy day mean to you?’ Tell them, ‘It’s the Passover sacrifice in honor of the LORD. He passed over the houses of the people of Israel in Egypt. He spared our homes when he struck the Egyptians down’ Then the people of Israel bowed down and worshiped" (Exodus 12:26-27).
