Passover

“And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall deep it a feast to the Lord thoughout your generations, ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.”  Exodus 12:14

Today in our homeschool, we did a one day unit study of Passover.  I found some excellent links for us and am sharing them with you.

The Passover of the Death Angel from the prince of Egypt

We baked unleavened  bread (this is not the traditional Passover bread, but communion bread).  It was very good, and we will be baking this again.

And the Maccabeats:

So long ago the Israelites in Egypt held this feast to be saved from death and to look forward to when they would be delivered out of bondage.  Today, we celebrate Passover knowing that Jesus was our “Passover Lamb”.  He is the one that has delivered us from our bondage to sin.  He has saved us from death and given us eternal life.
