Redeeming blood

  • Series: Exodus #6
  • Scripture: Exod 12
  • Location: St Paul's Cooma

The Jewish Passover was instituted by God through Moses as an annual observance, to ensure that God’s people could never forget the cost paid to redeem them. The night God visited Egypt in judgement, every Israelite household was spared the just sentence of death, because a lamb was slaughtered in substitution. A millennium and a half later Jesus observed the Jewish Passover with his friends, instituting a new ‘passover’ for a New Covenant. For he was the true and final Lamb of God whose shed blood would once and for all take away the sin of the whole world.
