Christ the Passover Lamb

The Passover centered around God's salvation through the blood of the sacrificial lamb. It is significant that the first Holy Communion took place during the Passover meal. When the Lord took the bread, saying, "this is my body" and the cup saying, "this is my blood," he was telling us that he was that Passover Lamb.

Salvation is possible because "Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed" (1 Corinthians 5:7 NIV). Every Communion gives us another chance to behold "the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world" (John ).

So we keep proclaiming the Lord's death until he comes, when we will join the thousands of thousands to sing this song: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and praise!" (Revelation 5:12).
