Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

God says- "Remember!"

Bitter herbs, salty water, a sweet apple mixture, the shankbone of a lamb-what is the meaning behind these symbolic elements? Enter the celebration of Passover, rich with history and significance for both Jew and Gentile. God wasn't finished working in the lives of His people after the waters of the Red Sea parted. Both past and future deliverance are celebrated in this solemn and joyful feast.

Through Christ in the Passover, you'll trace God's involvement through the history of this holy day-from the first Passover, all the way to the modern seder. And in this inviting book, Ceil and Moishe Rosen show you how the death and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah are forever interwoven with the Passover and its symbolism.

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This is the best book I ever read on the Christian meaning of the Passover.
Frances Webster
There simply is no way to appeal to Christians by pointing to these Rabbinic sources and claim they are "authoritative" for Christians.

I found this book to be a facinating study on how Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled all of the prophesies of the Old Testament.

I found this book to be a facinating study on how Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled all of the prophesies of the Old Testament. After spending the high holidays with my Jewish family and reading this book, I saw the truth of Jesus as the awaited Messiah revealed in the tradition of the Passover. This is a must read for any Jew searching for the Truth.

Format: Paperback
Christianity started as a Jewish movement. Jesus and all 12 of his disciples were Jews. The central historic act of Christian worship, the Eucharist (or communion or Lord's Supper), was instituted during a Passover meal. Jesus, himself, tied his death to this meal. The New Testament ties Jesus' life, death, and resurrection to fulfillment of Hebrew Scriptures. As more and more Christians search for their historic roots, books of this nature will continue to grow in popularity.

This book does an excellent job of describing what early Christians and the rest of Christianity has accepted, "That Jesus is the Lamb of God, slain for the sins of the world." This book will strike an emotional chord in any Christian who reads it.

That being said, it is unlikely that most Jews will see the connections as strongly as Christians. This is a great book for Christians and possibly an interesting book for Jews. But Christians should not be surprized if Jews react with anger at one of their most important holy days being "hijacked" by another religion. How would Christians react if Muslims presumed to explain to them the true meaning of Christmas?

Unfortunately, the Old Testament often gets the short end of the stick these days. All too often it is largely or completely ignored. Christians see it as too difficult, irrelevant, or legalistic, and pastors often see it as an embarrassment or too politically incorrect.

Without understanding the Old Testament, you will never really understand God. (Yes, I really do mean that - understanding the Old Testament is not optional for the Christian). Furthermore, trying to understand the New Testament without understanding the Old Testament is trying to understand the ocean without knowing the first thing about fish.

This book explores one of the many connections between the Old and New Testaments. People will usually be familiar with the connection between, say, Isaiah 53 and Jesus, but this book shows that that is not the only kind of connection. The Passover is filled with symbolism that points to Jesus. It's really a shame that so few Christians seem to be familiar with this, because I think that people would find it very beneficial to understand it. Without understanding the Passover, one cannot truly understand communion, the Last Supper, or a host of other New Testament passages and institutions. It will greatly enhance your understanding of Jesus (and how the Old Testament points to Him), the Passover, and a lot of the Old Testament too.

This book gives a very good overview of the Passover, the ceremony, its connection with Jesus, and many other important topics. It covers all the basics and is fairly well written. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the issues I've mentioned better.

This is the best book I ever read on the Christian meaning of the Passover. The "Last Supper" was a Passover Seder and until this book I never knew the fullness of what Jesus was saying. What an eye opener!!!

I found this book to be both informative and inspirational. In addition, it was an extremely easy read. It does a great job of explaining the history of the Jewish people from a theological perspective, as it relates to the important role that they play in God's plan of salvation for all of mankind. If you are Jewish, you difinitely want to buy this book. If you are a Gentile Christian, it gives you a great introduction to the Jewish roots of your faith. I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
"Christ in the Passover" is a Christ-focused, Biblical view of the Passover celebration. Using the Bible as their main source, the authors explained why Israel was chosen by God, the history leading up to the Passover, and the original commands from God on how to celebrate the Passover. They pointed out the parts of this celebration that we now know symbolize the death of Jesus the Messiah for our sins.

Then they commented on how the Passover was celebrated up until Jesus' time, the sights and sounds of Jerusalem during the Passover in Jesus time, what the Passover meal was like during Jesus' time, and what the modern Passover is like and why it's different. In all these cases, they pointed out the parts of the Passover meal that point to Christ. They also described when during the "Last Supper" Passover meal that he added the parts that have become the Christian communion celebration.

While I've heard much of this information before, this book had some new (to me) details, like the description of the larger scene of the celebration and several bits of the symbolism in the Passover meal.

I originally borrowed this book from my pastor. Once I started reading, I noticed some highlighting here and there, which, of course, drew my attention. It didn't take long to know that I needed my own copy! Mine is highlighted in a zillion places. I learned so many new things from this book and it's written in a very simple and understandable manor. Believe it or not... this is a "can't put it down" book.
