‘Tis The Season…

…for Passover.

Seder Meal

This past week, we helped to host an early Passover Seder meal with some friends. Not being Jewish, this was a first for us.

Christianity has some long and deep roots within Jewish history and culture, and Jewish traditions of sacrifice, deliverance, freedom, and anticipation lend serious depth and beauty to Christianity’s Easter story.

And so, with bitter herbs and charoset, matzo and wine, brisket and potatoes, we celebrated a traditional Passover Seder meal, with its structured order, responsive readings, and traditional menu. We used a modified version of the Jewish Haggadah, tweaked to reflect that the longing of history has been satisfied in the first coming of Christ, even while we eagerly await His return.

 ”‘I am the Lord, and…I will deliver you from slavery to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great acts of judgment. I will take you to be my people, and I will be your God, and you shall know that I am the Lord your God…’” (Exodus 6).

This Easter season, I am thankful that He has led me out to freedom and made me one of His own.

  2. I also appreciated your words about our Christian roots being so firmly bound in the Jewish faith, as was our Lord. Celebrating Seder is a special experience. Thank you for sharing your celebration.
