<< Luke 22:1 >>



  • Exodus 12:6-23
    Take care of them until the 14th day of the month. Then the whole community of Israel must kill them when the sun goes down.Take some of the blood. Put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where you eat the lambs.That same night eat the meat cooked over a fire. Also eat bitter plants. And eat bread made without yeast.Do not eat the meat when it is raw. Don’t boil it in water. Instead, cook it over a fire. Cook the head, legs and inside parts.Do not leave any of it until morning. If some is left over until morning, burn it up.Eat the meat while your coat is tucked into your belt. Put your sandals on your feet. Take your walking stick in your hand. Eat the food quickly. It is the Lord’ s Passover.“ That same night I will pass through Egypt. I will strike down all those born first among the people and animals. And I will judge all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord.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. You and your children after you must celebrate this day as a feast to honor the Lord. You must do this for all time to come. It is a law that will last forever.For seven days eat bread made without yeast. On the first day remove the yeast from your homes. For the next seven days, anyone who eats anything with yeast in it must be separated from Israel.On the first and seventh days, come together for a sacred assembly. Do not work at all on these days. The only thing you are allowed to do is prepare food for everyone to eat.“ Celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread. I brought you out of Egypt on this very day like an army on the march. It is a law that will last for all time to come.In the first month eat bread made without yeast. Eat it from the evening of the 14th day until the evening of the 21st day.For seven days do not let any yeast be found in your homes. Anyone who eats anything with yeast in it must be separated from the community of Israel. That applies to outsiders and Israelites alike.Do not eat anything made with yeast. No matter where you live, eat bread made without yeast.”Then Moses sent for all the elders of Israel. He said to them,“ Go at once. Choose the animals for your families. Each family must kill a Passover lamb.Get a branch of a hyssop plant. Dip it into the blood in the bowl. Put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. None of you can go out of the door of your house until morning.The Lord will go through the land to strike down the Egyptians. He’ll see the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe. He will pass over that house. He won’t let the destroying angel enter your homes to strike you down.

    It was almost time for the Jewish Passover Feast. Many people went up from the country to Jerusalem. They went there for the special washing that would make them pure before the Passover Feast.They kept looking for Jesus as they stood in the temple courtyard. They asked one another,“ What do you think? Isn’t he coming to the feast at all?”But the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders. They had commanded anyone who found out where Jesus was staying to report it. Then they could arrest him.
  • 1 Corinthians 5 7-1 Corinthians 5 8
    Get rid of the old yeast. Then you can be like a new batch of dough without yeast. That is what you really are. That’s because Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been offered up for us.So let us keep the Feast, but not with the old bread made with yeast. The yeast I’m talking about is hatred and evil. Let us keep the Feast with bread made without yeast. Let us keep it with bread that is honesty and truth.
