The Blood of the LambBy John Cortright on 04/05/2020
1 Corinthians 5:7b
For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed.
Behold, the Lamb of God!
The Original Passover
Exodus 11:4-6; 12:29-30
All the firstborn of Egypt were killed.
Exodus 12:1-13 - The institution of Passover
“Kill it at twilight” in Hebrew means “between the two evenings.”
Passover at time of Hezekiah
2 Chronicles 30:17-20
So Yahweh heard Hezekiah and healed the people.
Jesus Christ Our Passover
1 Peter 1:18-19
Redeemed with the precious blood as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ
Like a lamb that is lead to slaughter
About the ninth hour [the time between the evenings] Jesus cried again with a loud voice (John 19:30 “It is finished!”) and yielded up his spirit. (Luke 23:46 - “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”)
The veil in the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. (Hebrews 9:12 - his blood shed for us obtained eternal redemption!)
1 Peter 2:24
By His wounds you were healed.
