Passover is the oldest and most important religious festival in Judaism, commemorating God's deliverance of the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt and His creation of the Israelite people. Passover begins at sunset on the 14th of Nisan and marks the beginning of a 7 day celebration, the highlight being the Seder meal to celebrate and rejoice in God's deliverance. Jesus and his disciples were celebrating Passover during the Last Supper, therefore many Christians celebrate Passover to remember the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

While Jews use this holiday to remember God delivering their nation from slavery to Egypt through God's, all Christians can use it to remember Jesus delivering us from our sins. The below Bible verses will lead you toward worship and praise of God's provision through Jesus during Passover.
