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!!!

A SIMPLE SEDER – SUGGESTION #1 ON HOW TO CELEBRATE PASSOVER

Passover Children
You and your family can make a Passover Seder as simple or as elaborate as you want. Christian families with small children may enjoy a simplified Seder that can teach them both Passovers – the Exodus and the Messiah (Jesus Christ).

For example: Kids can draw and color pictures about the Passover Story after someone reads it from the Bible or a good storybook. Periodically, you may want to ask them questions to keep them engaged. Perhaps ask them about their favorite parts of the Passover Story. As a Christian, make sure to explain how the Messiah is our Passover Lamb. If you need an assist in that department, please refer to BEHOLD, THE PASSOVER LAMB OF GOD=> https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2018/03/30/behold-the-passover-lamb-of-god/

The following are possible PASSOVER SCRIPTURES you can choose from:

• EXODUS 12 – THE PASSOVER & THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD – http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus+12&version=TLB – The Bible records that the Passover was kept the second year after the Exodus, then again when the Hebrews reached the Promised Land (Joshua 5:10). The requirements for Passover in Bible Times are outlined in Exodus 12:1-13:16. A sign hung on each lamb’s neck bearing the name of the family. After the head of the household searched with a lit candle for every trace of leaven (sin), they selected their representative unblemished lamb. Once the lamb was brought into the home and bonded with, all the families would lead their sacrificial lambs up to the Temple to be slain beginning around 2:30 PM. The priests blew the trumpet and sang songs when the lambs were slain as well as the Hallel Psalms 113-118 were recited. Once the lambs were cleaned out and burnt on the altar, the service ended with burning of incense, which symbolized their pleasing sacrifices. The lambs were roasted on a spit made of pomegranate wood. Special care was taken so the lamb didn’t touch anything besides the spit. None of the bones were broken, and all that was not eaten that day was burnt with fire until nothing remained.

• EXODUS 7-12 – THE TEN PLAGUES AND THE PASSOVER – The entire episode of the plagues supposedly happened within 8-10 months. Each plague was a sign to the Egyptians (i.e. world) that showed the YHVH is greater than their so-called gods. The first three plagues affected everyone, including the Hebrews. After the first three, the plagues intensified and only affected the Egyptians. Before each plague, Yah (God) commanded Moses and Aaron to warn Pharaoh: “Let My people go or I (Yah) will bring a plague upon you.” Therefore, before each plague Moses warned Pharaoh for three weeks. Then when each plague hit, they each lasted one week.

• LEVITICUS 23:4-8 – The Passover and The Feast of Unleavened Bread are appointed Feasts of the Lord.

• MATTHEW 21, 26-28 – Yeshua (Jesus) triumphant entry into Jerusalem (Matthew 21), the plot to kill Him (Matthew 26) and His crucifixion (Matthew 27), and His Resurrection (Matthew 28).

• MARK 14-16 – Death Plot (Mark 14), Yeshua before Pilate and His crucifixion (Mark 15), and His Resurrection (Mark 16).

• LUKE 22-24 – Preparing for Passover (Luke 22), Yeshua’s trial & crucifixion (Luke 23), and the Resurrection (Luke 24).

• JOHN 18-20 – Judas Betrays Yeshua (John 18), Yeshua’s crucifixion (John 19) and the Resurrection and the Empty Tomb (John 20).

• 1 CORINTHIANS 5:7 – Christ is our Passover Lamb

P.S. Our next suggestion is a basic outline of the traditional 18 steps of a Passover Seder; and then, a complete Passover Story (Haggadah) for Christians.
