TRADITIONAL 18-STEP SEDER – SUGGESTION #2 ON HOW TO CELEBRATE PASSOVER

Passover Plate

The following is 18-steps of a traditional seder that can be adapted to suit your family:

[1] Begin with a sanctification blessing over the grape juice (wine) in honor of celebrating Yeshua (Jesus) as depicted in Passover. Everyone drinks their beverage, and a second cup is poured, which is symbolic of the Blood of Yeshua (Matthew 26:28; Mark 14:23-24; Luke 22:20; John 6:53-56).

[2] The person leading the seder pours water into a basin and washes his hands, which is symbolic of Yeshua washing His disciples feet before they ate the Passover meal (John 13:5).

[3] The Karpas (the vegetable – usually parsley) is dipped in salt water and eaten. It symbolizes the tears shed as a result of our slavery.

[4] The three pieces of matzah are brought to the forefront. Two of them are blessed and the middle one is broken. The middle matzah is lifted up for everyone to see, then he breaks it in two. This middle matzah symbolizes the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ). One of the pieces that the leader broke is then wrapped in a linen, and is called the Afikoman. The third pieces of matzah speaks of the oneness of God in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

[5] The leader hides the Afikoman. This is a picture of Yeshua broken and wrapped up in a cloth and buried and brought forth again (as bread brought forth from the earth). Yeshua – The Bread of Life – was without sin (leaven). He was pierced and whipped with stripes, just as the unleavened matzah (Matthew 27:59-60).

[6] Retell the story of the Exodus from Egypt and the first Passover. You may begin this section with the youngest person asking “The Four Questions.” Then someone can read the Passover story from Exodus 12. Here is an example of “The Four Questions” is:

• On all other nights we may eat either leaven or unleavened bread. On this night, why can we eat only unleavened bread?

• On all other nights we may eat vegetables. On this night, why are we required to eat bitter herbs?

• On all other nights we are not asked to dip our vegetables even once. Why on this night do we dip them twice?

• On all other nights we eat our meals in any manner. On this night, why do we sit around the table in a formal ceremony?

[7] A blessing is recited over the second cup of wine, and it is drunk.

[8] A second of washing of the hands with a blessing in preparation for eating the matzah.

[9] A blessing specific to the matzah is spoken thanking God for the bread that is symbolic of the Body of Christ (Matthew 26:26). Then a piece of matzah is eaten.

[10] A blessing is said over a bitter herb (usually raw horseradish), and it is eaten. The bitter herb symbolizes the bitterness of slavery and the bitterness of sin. Eat the bitter vegetable with the matzah.

[11] The bitter vegetable is eaten again, but with the haroset (typically a mixture of apples, nuts, cinnamon and wine) which symbolizes the mortar used by the slaves to build. This mixture also symbolizes how the sweetness of Yeshua can overcome sin.

[12] A festive meal is usually eaten. There are no particular requirements, except no leaven and no pork products. Lamb and matza ball soup are traditional parts of a Seder Dinner.

[13] The piece of matza set aside earlier is eaten for dessert, and the children look for the Afikoman. Once it is found, it is ransomed to the Seder Leader for a price ($1 or $5), just as the Messiah was ransomed with 30 pieces of silver.

[14] The third cup of wine, called the Redemption Cup, is poured. Grace is recited and a blessing is spoken over the third cup and it is drunk.

[15] The fourth cup is poured.

[16] Some of the Passover items are set aside for the prophet Elijah, including a cup of wine. The door is opened to welcome the appearance of Elijah (or the Spirit of Elijah – Mal 4:5).

[17] Several Hallel Psalms 113-118 are recited, and a blessing is spoken over the last cup of wine and it is drunk.

[18] The Passover is completed by saying: “Next Year in Jerusalem! (Lashanan Haba’ah Bi Yerushalayim!). And if you desire, it can be followed by other hymns and stories.

P.S. Our next suggestion is a complete Passover Story (Haggadah) for Christians.

Give em heaven!!!
