BT Daily: Passover Christian? Unleavened Bread Christian?

[Steve Myers] When most people hear the word
Passover, the first word that comes to mind is usually not Christian. Normally they think Jewish. And yet Passover isn’t restricted to the Jews. There’s actually a better Passover that’s
described in the New Testament. In 1 Corinthians the Apostle Paul described
Passover as Christian. And so when you think of the Passover, I think
you have to understand what Christ’s intent was on the Passover. What was it all about? Well, when you found how He instituted that
Passover, 1 Corinthians 11 Paul points it out very clearly what Christ taught him. And he says, verse 23, “I received from the
Lord that which I also delivered to you” (1 Corinthians 11-23-26) So what Christ taught Paul, he gave to his
church. So he points out very clearly the Passover
is Christian. And of course Christ changed those Old Testament
functions of Passover and gave us the bread and the wine, representative of His body and
His blood. And so Paul points that out that the Passover
is Christian the way Christ instituted it the night before His death. And in fact, the way that he says it in chapter
5 of 1 Corinthians, he tells us that we are to celebrate the Passover (1 Corinthians 5:6-8) In fact, he doesn’t stop there because immediately
after Passover we have Unleavened Bread. And Unleavened Bread also is one of those
festivals that sound very Jewish. You can turn to Leviticus 23 where it lists
all of those Jewish festivals. And yet Paul says it’s not Jewish. It should be Christian. New Testament Christians should keep the Passover
and should keep Unleavened Bread. Now here’s one if you haven’t thought of that
you should look up. Take a note of this passage in 1 Corinthians
chapter 5 and in verse 8. Here’s what the Apostle Paul says, “Therefore,
let us keep the feast,” and then he says, “Not with the old leavened, nor the leaven
of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth” (1 Corinthians
5:8). So do we allow the word of God to teach us
some symbolism behind what we eat during this time? For a Christian, the answer is not a question. The answer is really an exclamation that yes
Passover and Unleavened Bread are absolutely Christian. If you’re not sure about it, check out the
word of God and what Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul himself taught. That’s BT Daily. We’ll see you next time.
