Jesus, Our Passover Lamb



Ram Provided By God

Gen 22:7 And Isaac said to his father Abraham, "My father!" And he said, "Here I am, my son." He said, "Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?" 
Gen 22:8 Abraham said, "God will provide for himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son." So they went both of them together. 
Gen 22:9 When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 
Gen 22:10 Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son. 
Gen 22:11 But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am." 
Gen 22:12 He said, "Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me." 
Gen 22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. 
Gen 22:14 So Abraham called the name of that place, "The LORD will provide"; as it is said to this day, "On the mount of the LORD it shall be provided." ESV




Aplying Blood Of The Passover Lamb

Exo 12:2  "This month shall be for you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year for you. 
Exo 12:3  Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month every man shall take a lamb according to their fathers' houses, a lamb for a household. 
Exo 12:4  And if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his nearest neighbor shall take according to the number of persons; according to what each can eat you shall make your count for the lamb. 
Exo 12:5  Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats, 
Exo 12:6  and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight. 
Exo 12:7  "Then they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it. 
Exo 12:8  They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted on the fire; with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it. ESV


Jesus Is Our Passover Lamb
1Co 5:7  Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 
1Co 5:8  Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. ESV

All who come to Jesus in obedient faith receive the grace of salvation purchased by His death on the cross, through the new birth. 


1Pe 1:14  As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 
1Pe 1:15  but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 
1Pe 1:16  since it is written, "You shall be holy, for I am holy." 
1Pe 1:17  And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, 
1Pe 1:18  knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 
1Pe 1:19  but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 
1Pe 1:20  He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you 
1Pe 1:21  who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. 
1Pe 1:22  Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, 
1Pe 1:23  since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; 
1Pe 1:24  for "All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, 
1Pe 1:25  but the word of the Lord remains forever." And this word is the good news that was preached to you. ESV



Baptism Pictures The Death Of Jesus

Rom 6:1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 
Rom 6:2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? 
Rom 6:3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 
Rom 6:4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. 
Rom 6:5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. 
Rom 6:6 We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 
Rom 6:7 For one who has died has been set free from sin. 
Rom 6:8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.  ESV

Yes, Jesus is the Passover Lamb, providing salvation to all who are in the house sprinkled with the blood of the Lamb. The house sprinkled with the blood of the Passover Lamb is the Body of Christ, God's House, built up of living stones, God's people. God adds to His people all who put on Jesus through obedient faith. 


Act 2:41  So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls. 

Act 2:42  And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 

Act 2:43  And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 

Act 2:44  And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 

Act 2:45  And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 

Act 2:46  And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 
Act 2:47  praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
