Passover and the Lord’s Supper

This past Sunday we had the great privilege of observing the Lord’s Supper.  Our scripture was from 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 where Paul speaks of Christ Jesus as our Passover.  We looked at a few parallels between Passover and the Lord’s Supper during the message.  Several people have asked for the chart that we used, so I am providing it below.

Exodus 12 – Passover Jesus
12:1-2 – Feast marked a new year and beginning for the people 2 Cor. 5:17 – Believer is a New Creation.  Old life replaced with a new life in Christ.
12:5 – A spotless male lamb was sacrificed. 1 Peter 1:19 – Jesus was with Lamb slain without blemish.
12:7,12, 22 – The blood from the sacrificed lamb was placed on the door post.  The blood covering spared them from God’s judgment.
John 1:29; Rom. 3:25 – Jesus blood covers (justifies) us and removes sin.
*Hebrews 10:1-18 – Jesus was the final sacrifice.
12:14 – Passover was kept to remember what God had done for the people. Luke 22:19 – Lord’s Supper done to remember what the Lord had done for them.
Finally, you might find these two articles helpful as well.
