It is our belief that most Jews and Christians alike, misunderstand the significance of the Passover and the Lord’s Supper.  According to an article written for Christianity Today by two Jewish Rabbis, Yehiel Poupko and David Sandmel, Jesus Didn’t Eat a Seder Meal at his Last Supper because the Seder Meal most Jews know today and the Christian Eucharist most Christians know today were not instituted until after 70 AD.  Jesus celebrated the Passover meal as described in the book of Exodus, chapter twelve. This meal consisted of lamb roasted with fire, bitter herbs and unleavened bread, not chicken as some Jews eat today.  The only thing Jesus changed about that meal was it’s purpose and the significance of the unleavened bread and wine.   How should we celebrate the Lord’s Supper.  We believe you should eat the Passover meal to remember Christ’s suffering and death as our Passover Lamb (1 Corinthians 11:24-25) This is what broke the Christian’s bondage to sin just as the Passover broke the bondage of Egyptian slavery for the Jew.  Come join us as we use this ancient Jewish traditional meal as an outline for a Bible study on the true meaning of the Lord’s Supper.
