passover food
Passover Food
  • Unleavened Bread (why?)
    • No yeast for bread to rise= quick flight from Egypt
  • Lamb – Roasted, not boiled
    • Whole lamb, or a section/piece of lamb
      • Depends on wealth of family
    • Sop / Honor
      • Communal sop = soupy mixture with pieces of lamb
      • Put on bread and give to another person = great honor
pascal lamb animal sacrifices
Pascal Lamb & Animal Sacrifices
  • Passover would officially close the requirement of animal sacrifices (why were animal sacrifices made in the first place?
    • Adam, Lehi, and others offered sacrifices
    • Nowadays we remember Christ through sacrament

Pascal Lamb & Animal Sacrifices

“From at least the time of the Exodus when Moses led the children of Israel from Pharaoh’s captivity, the Lord’s people had offered the firstlings of their flocks in sacrifice. Hours after the Passover feast in the upper room, the Son of Man shed His blood as an infinite eternal sacrifice, and the shedding of animal blood by the faithful Saints ceased. All sacrifices of the past were fulfilled in Him. Thus Paul testified: “Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.” (1 Cor. 5:7) From this night forward, the sacrament would point toward the one supreme sacrifice—the Lamb of God.”

David B. Haight, Ensign April 1988


Passover Food

  • Bitter Herbs
  • Haroset
    • Sweetness = reminds that bitter can be sweet
  • Other – olives, fruits, nuts

did jesus really drink wine
Did Jesus Really Drink Wine?
  • Wine vs. “Strong Wine” or Strong Drink
  • Passover wine:
      • 1 part wine / 4 parts water
      • 1 part wine / 3 parts water
  • For what purpose?
      • cleaner than available water
did jesus really drink wine1
Did Jesus Really Drink Wine?

“To consume the amount of alcohol that is in two martinis by drinking wine containing three parts water to one part wine, one would have to drink over 22 glasses! In other words, it is possible to become intoxicated from wine mixed with three parts water, but one’s drinking would probably affect the bladder long before it affected the mind!”

Christianity Today, 20 June 1975

Bear Record of Him

“Significant, too, is the fact that the Son of God commenced His earthly ministry with an ordinance—baptism—and ended His ministry with an ordinance—the sacrament. Both bore record of His death, burial, and resurrection.”

David B. Haight, Ensign April 1988

Promises and Blessings of Remembering

First, if you will let your heart be drawn to the Savior and always remember Him and if you will draw near to our Heavenly Father in prayer, you will have put on spiritual armor. You will be protected against pride because you will know that any success comes not from your human powers. And you will be protected against the thoughts which come rushing in upon us that we are too weak, too inexperienced, too unworthy to do what we are called of God to do to serve and help save His children. We can have come into our hearts the reassurance recorded in Moroni: “Christ truly said unto our fathers: If ye have faith ye can do all things which are expedient unto me” (Mor. 10:23).

Promises and Blessings of Remembering

There is another sure promise. It is this: Whether or not you choose to keep your covenant to always remember Him, He always remembers you. I testify that Jesus Christ, born in Bethlehem, was and is the Only Begotten of the Father, the Lamb of God. He chose from before the foundations of the earth to be your Savior, my Savior, and the Savior of all we will ever know or meet. I testify that He was resurrected and that because of His Atonement we may be washed clean through our faith to obey the laws and accept the ordinances of the gospel.

Promises and Blessings of Remembering

I promise you that you will feel the influence of the Holy Ghost touch your heart as you search the scriptures with new purpose and as you pray earnestly. From that, you will have the assurance that God lives, that He answers prayers, that Jesus is the living Christ, and that He loves you. And you will feel your love for Him increase.
