Passover Seder: March 24

March 7th, 2016 | John Chandler

The final days of Lent are also the beginning of Holy Week — days marked by Jesus’ activities in Jerusalem in the final week before his death and resurrection. Recognizing Jesus’ own activities that week enrich our own experiences leading into Easter.

The night before Jesus was crucified is commonly known as the Last Supper. Christians have celebrated this through a piece of bread and cup of wine for centuries, but this was a meal Jesus shared with his followers as part of an elaborate feast and retelling of the Passover story. It was an intimate part of a larger festival, as the descendants of slaves in Egypt celebrated their freedom from centuries of toil.

The first meal of this Passover festival is known as a Seder — a meal which Jason and Megan Engel have been celebrating for many years. This year, they have offered to host a meal for our church community as another opportunity in Holy Week to anticipate the resurrection to come.
