NOTE: We will see that this reaction to God’s power and deliverance is short-lived. The Israelites have a short memory and need frequent reminders that God is for them. It is not unlike us. God delivers us, but we fail to see Him in our deliverance or we quickly forget how He has delivered us or provided for us or saved us or comforted us. We have spiritual dementia. The only way to fight against this spiritual dementia is to stay connected to God through study of His Word, fellowship with other believers, and prayer.

Exodus Chapter 12 – Passover

Read Exodus 12
1. In Chapter 12, God establishes a new calendar. What instructions does Moses give about what is to be done on the 10th day of the month?

2. What requirements are stated for the lamb?

3. What is to be done at twilight on the 14th day? What is to be done with the blood?

4. What specific instructions are given about the cooking and eating of the meat?

5. Copy Exodus 12:23 here.

6. What do you learn about the Feast of Unleavened Bread from this chapter?

7. What is Pharaoh’s response to this plague in Exodus 12:29-32? Egyptians?

8. How many Israelites left Egypt? What was their first stop when they left Egypt?

9. What additional information do you learn about the Passover from Exodus 12:42-49?

10. What do you learn from the following verses?
□ 1 Corinthians 5:7

□ 1 Peter 1:19

□ Revelation 5:6

Note: The feasts of Passover and Unleavened Bread commemorate God’s deliverance of Israel out of Egypt. In addition to looking back, all of the Jewish feasts, of which Passover and Unleavened Bread are just two, look ahead to Jesus, the Messiah (the Promised and Expected One).

Passover is a picture of Jesus, the perfect sacrifice–the lamb without spot or blemish who was slain for the sins of the world so that judgment might “pass over” those would put their trust in the blood of Jesus applied to the door posts of their life.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread is a picture and celebration of the sinlessness of Jesus. Leaven in the Bible is always a picture of sin. To live without leaven for a week is a picture of living a life free of sin’s power over us, a life only possible through the power of the Holy Spirit (after Pentecost).

As we move through the books of the Law, we have already seen and will continue to see signs, pictures and foretellings of the coming Messiah, the one who will deliver the people of God, both Jew and Gentile, from the bondage of sin.

Finally, the night of Jesus’ arrest, He was celebrating a Passover meal with His disciples, explaining to them the new covenant and the symbolism in the celebration as the meal progressed. They didn’t really seem to understand. Review John 13, Luke 22, Matthew 26:18-31. Passover provides the basis for the New Testament ordinance that we call Communion. See Corinthians 11:23-25.
