Jesus Christ Fulfilled The Passover

Exodus Chapter 12 in the Old Testament is a perfect depiction of Jesus Christ, who fulfilled The Passover.

The Lord begins by instructing Moses and Aaron about the specifics they have to carry out in order to deliever the children of Israel from the bondage of Egypt.

The sacrificial lamb was to be slain on the 14th Day of Nisan. The atoning blood placed upon the door brought salvation to the children of Israel as the death angel passed overhead on the eve of the Passover, delivering God’s covenant people from the bondage of Egypt.

AND the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2. This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. 3. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: 4. And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of souls, every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. 5. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: 6. Now ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
7. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. 8. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. 9. Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire, his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. 10. And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remained of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. 11. And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand, and ye shall eat it in haste; it is the Lord’s Passover. 12. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt, I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. 13. And the blood shall be to you a token upon the houses where ye are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.. 14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.
Jesus, the Messiah of Israel, was crucified on the 14th day of Nisan, 32 A.D. bringing salvation to his covenant people and delivering them from the bondage of sin and death.

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. Zechariah 9:9

Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. Matthew's Gospel  Chapter 21
On Nisan 10, 32 A.D., Palm Sunday, Israel’s ultimate sacrifical lamb made His appearance as their Messiah, according to the scriptures, when Jesus entered into the city of Jerusalem through the eastern gate, precisely on the appointed date, riding on a donkey. Just four days later, on Thursday, and not Friday as the myth of the Catholic Organization has proclaimed, on Hebrew calendar Nisan 14, the sinless lamb of God went up for the slaughter, and was crucified on the Passover.

Jesus is the promised lamb slain from the foundation of the world, Revelation 13.8

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes we are healed.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. Isaiah 53
Purge out, therefore, the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened.  For even Christ our passover is sacrified for us. 

Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice, and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerety and truth.  I Corinthians 5:7-8
