We hope the time of discussion today inspires your faith and fills you with hope. We will face ups and downs in life, but even in the dark times, God is at work.
Here are a few reasons why Christians believe Jesus is the Passover Lamb:

Passover Lambs
Raised in Bethlehem, just outside of Jerusalem.

On the 10th of the month of Nisan, Passover lambs were brought into Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives through the “Sheep Gate”.

Preparing for Passover, families would clean all the leaven (yeast) out of their homes (Exodus 12:15,19).

Lambs were inspected for blemishes until the 14th day of Nisan (Exodus 12:3-6).

The lamb was bound to the altar at 9 am (the 3rd hour).

The lamb was killed at 3 pm (the 9th hour).

In the first Passover, the lamb’s blood saves the people from death (Exodus
12:13).

Jesus the Messiah
Born in Bethlehem and announced by John the Baptist as “the Lamb of God” (John 1:29).

On the 10th of Nisan, Jesus walked down the Mount of Olives & entered Jerusalem through the “Sheep Gate”(Luke 19:28-38).

Jesus cleansed the temple (His Father’s house) in preparation for the final Passover (Matt 21:12-13).

Jesus was closely inspected by the High Priest and religious leaders. Pilate finds no fault in Him (John 18:38).

Jesus was nailed to the cross at 9 am (Mk 15:25).

Jesus gives up His life at 3 pm (Mark 15:34).

In the last Passover, Jesus’ blood saves all who believe from eternal death (Matt 26:28).
