What does the Bible say about Passover? The New Testament Passover is a memorial of the suffering and death of Jesus. Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth (1 Corinthians 5:8). Passover is in early spring to remind how God spared His people from death in Egypt. Learn more from our list of Bible verses about Passover below.
