The Passover Festival

Exodus 12:1-28, 43-49


  1. The First Passover 12:1-13


  1. The Miscellaneous Provisions of the Passover 12:43-51



a) We are saved by grace.


b) We are saved by the blood of the Lamb.

  • Lamb theme in the Bible:
    • Cain and Abel, Abraham and Isaac
    • High Priest on the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16:15-16a)
    • Jesus (John 1:29)
  • Passover lamb: pure & spotless. 1 Peter 2:22; Hebrews. 4:15; Hebrews 9:14.
  • The Last Supper was the Passover.
  • Substitutionary atonement: Jesus died instead of us.

Romans 5:9: “we have … been justified by His blood.”

Ephesians 1:7: “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.”

1 John 1:7: “the blood of Jesus… purifies us from all sin.”


c) We are saved to be sanctified.

1 Corinthians 5:7 “Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast — as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.”


d) We are saved together.
