I've always known the connection between the Passover of the Old Testament and Jesus crucifixion, death and resurrection, but never have I seen it with such clarity as the author details in his book.
He doesn't just talk about Moses and the first Passover, he tells you about God's plan for humanity from the very beginning of creation. A plan for the redemption of humanity - a plan He set in motion before the beginning of the world. I was interested when the author brilliantly and succinctly laid out the reasons why the moon was so pivotal in marking the months for Israel and marking their feasts and festivals. I knew a little about this already, but I was delighted when he showed how God had planned these appointed times (like the Passover) from the beginning of creation. It was a giant light-bulb moment for me, and I loved it.
There were a lot of those in this book, and it will be something I treasure and keep close to me this Easter (yes, I will reread it). The author has provided details on which chapters to read as you head into the Easter season. I genuinely believe that anyone reading this book during the Lenten season will not regret it.
The author breaks down the Passover into essential sections and how they relate to Jesus and our redemption. Using the stories of Moses, Joshua, Jacob, Ruth and more, we begin to see how acutely aware God was before He even started to create us, that a plan needed to be in place for our redemption. More stunning of course is that the Bible, written by various authors over a span of hundreds of years, had the same redemption theme running throughout it.
I have never read a book that presents this so precisely. I invite you not to wait until Easter to read it, but to pick it up now! It will enrich your spiritual life and give you a new appreciation for what the Lord has done for us.
What was Jesus (Yeshua) and his disciples doing before His death/Resurrection. Keeping Passover. If Jesus did it, we should to, it's that simple.
Though it’s only about 150 pages long, it’s remarkable how many great thoughts and insights are packed into them. I really appreciated how the author wrote succinctly and got to the point without rambling. Though the highlights as the Passover is traced through Genesis, Exodus, Joshua, and Ruth are too many to list, I’ll give a few of my favorites. First the author explores Exodus 6:2-8 where God declares his purpose behind the Passover before it happens. Maybe this has been done before by others but it was the first time I’ve ever heard that perspective. By investigating those details, the events of the Passover and its connection to Easter take on more meaning. Another amazing connection was the story of Ruth. As the author points out, the word “Passover” is never mentioned in the book of Ruth, yet the Passover plays a significant role in the story and the author uses it to transition to the Gospel accounts of Easter.
To summarize the book, I’ll quote the last chapter, “We started this journey with a desire to explore the coherency of God’s plan of redemption through the Passover up to Easter. When I look at the Passover, its entire plan, from creation to the resurrection, I see the most remarkable and coherent plan imaginable.”
