What stood out to you from Sunday’s message?
Read Exodus 12:1-28
Finally in Exodus 12, we have the climactic 10th plague against Egypt (that is, Egypt’s gods), the death of the firstborn of each household. But in his mercy, God provides a way of mercy for all who believe. A lamb can be killed as a substitute, taking the place of the firstborn. This great act of deliverance points us ahead to Jesus our great Passover Lamb. All who receive God’s grace by faith are saved by the blood of this Lamb.
- Which holidays seem the most meaningful to you? What do they help us remember? How do they help us teach our children?
- Why did the Passover lamb have to be without blemish? And why does it have to die?
- What role does faith play in the events of the Passover?
- On what basis was Israel saved? Were they better than others? How does this speak to our salvation?
- How is the Passover meal similar to the Lord’s Supper?
- What is the significance of eating the meal with unleavened bread while standing with sandals and staff? In what sense do we still “eat with our shoes on?”
