The background to the Passover story

The Passover story really took place many, many years ago. It is found in the Book of Exodus between chapters 1 to 12

Passover story reminds us that God miraculously delivered the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. It is a reminder that God loves nations and keeps promises.

When the Hebrew people first came to Egypt, they had an easy life. Joseph, son of their leader Jacob, was a good friend of the Pharaoh. But after he died, other Pharaohs who didn’t like the Hebrews began to rule the land. The Pharaohs made the Hebrews work harder and harder, and the Hebrews cried out to Yah* to save them. <br/>“Yahweh* please don’t forget your people. Save us from this evil Pharaoh!” <br/>Even though it didn’t seem like it, Yah, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, had everything figured out. He hadn’t forgotten His promise with Abraham to make the Hebrew people a great nation. Although Yah allowed them to be taken into slavery, He also had a plan to free them. His plan included a baby called Moses, who would one day grow up to lead the Hebrew people out of Egypt. <br/>* Did you know that Yah and Yahweh are Hebrew names for God? – Slide 1
The Jews were slaves in Egypt and had a really hard time

Passover celebrations take place every year in Israel and around the world. When the Jews lived in Egypt, they were treated like slaves and forced to work very hard.

They were distressed and cried and cried to God. God heard their cries and sent a Jew called Moses to deliver them.

Moses went to the Pharaoh or king. He told Pharaoh to release the Jews. Pharaoh refused and God plagued his nation with ten plagues.

In the final plague, God killed all of the firstborn children in Egypt. However, He commanded the Jews to kill a lamb and to sprinkle the blood on their doorposts.

At midnight, when the angel came, he passed over the homes that had the blood of the lamb on the doorposts.

The blood of the lamb teaches us that God will protect and save those who are covered with the blood of Jesus.

Passover is a time of miracles and deliverance from difficult situations. We are also reminded that Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

Passover story in Exodus 12

This is the Passover story in Exodus 12

1The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,
2“This month shall be for you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year for you.
3Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month every man shall take a lamb according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household.
4And if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his nearest neighbor shall take according to the number of persons; according to what each can eat you shall make your count for the lamb.
5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats,
6and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight.
7“Then they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it.
8They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted on the fire; with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it.
9Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but roasted, its head with its legs and its inner parts.
10And you shall let none of it remain until the morning; anything that remains until the morning you shall burn.
11In this manner you shall eat it: with your belt fastened, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the LORD’s Passover.
12For I will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the LORD.
13The blood shall be a sign for you, on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you, when I strike the land of Egypt.
14“This day shall be for you a memorial day, and you shall keep it as a feast to the LORD; throughout your generations, as a statute forever, you shall keep it as a feast.

Finally, Yah had had enough of Pharaoh’s stubborn behaviour. He said to Moses, “I will bring one last plague. At midnight I will kill all the first-born children and animals of Egypt. No one will escape. But if the Hebrew people do what I say, I will spare them. After this, Pharaoh will let them go.” <br/>That night, Yah commanded a sign made from the blood of a lamb be put on the sides of the door and over the doorpost of the Hebrews’ homes. This sign would be for their protection. This blood would save them from Yah’s final plague. <br/>Little did they know that this sign pointed to their future Messiah. <br/>Just before midnight a mist crept through the homes of the Egyptians. Every first-born male died, just as Yah had warned. But the lamb’s blood protected the Hebrews who had listened to Yah’s instructions. – Slide 17

What did Pharaoh and his people do when the plague struck at midnight?

At midnight the LORD struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of the livestock.
30And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians. And there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where someone was not dead.
31Then he summoned Moses and Aaron by night and said, “Up, go out from among my people, both you and the people of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as you have said.
32Take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone, and bless me also!”
33The Egyptians were urgent with the people to send them out of the land in haste. For they said, “We shall all be dead.”
34So the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading bowls being bound up in their cloaks on their shoulders.
35The people of Israel had also done as Moses told them, for they had asked the Egyptians for silver and gold jewelry and for clothing.
36And the LORD had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have what they asked. Thus they plundered the Egyptians.
