Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Where will You have for us prepare for You the Passover?" He said, "Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, 'The Teacher says My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.'"
It was the time of Passover when Jesus was to be crucified. Who but the Lord could time something like that? When the first Passover took place a few thousand years before Jesus walked the earth, it was pointing to the Christ, The Ultimate Passover Lamb. Before the foundations of the world, God intended it to be that way.
A life for a life.
The difference is that because Jesus is God, His life could cover every life that has ever been. We do not each need our own individual Jesus, but every one of us can be covered by Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World. Jesus died so that we might live.
Thank You, Jesus for being The Ultimate Passover Lamb!
