The Seven Passovers
(Luke 22:7-20)



The Lord's Supper was at the time of the Passover, and unlike any other Passover the disciples had ever witnessed, for Jesus was declaring himself to be the Passover Lamb.

A search of the other occasions for the Passover will be instructive - remembering that Christ is our Passover - (1 Cor. 5:7): with that in mind let's allow the other Passovers to teach us.

I. The Original Passover - (Ex. 12; Heb. 11:28)

To avoid death - (1 Cor. 15:55-57; Jn. 10:27-30) Jesus always conquered death - no one could stay dead in Jesus' presence.

II. (Num. 9:1-5,13) - To avoid bearing your own sins - (2 Cor. 5:20-21).

The choice is to bear your own sin or have a Sin Bearer.

III. (2 Chron. 30:1-12) - To avoid judgment and find compassion - (1 Thess. 1:10; 5:9).

The best Old Testament remedy to avoid God's wrath was a Passover with a humble heart (vs. 11). To receive Christ is to humble yourself - pride is your greatest enemy. Someone will mock (vs. 10).

IV. (2 Chron. 35; 1 Cor. 10:16-17)

A. When you claim Christ as your Passover your service is not a burden, but a source of great blessing. (vss. 1-3)

B. The blessings (vss. 7-13) - God wants to be a channel (through Christ) of great blessing to His people.

C. Time of cleansing - (2 Kings 23:21-25) - It is a time to rid ourselves of the wizards, bad spirits, idols, etc.

V. Joy - (Ez. 6:16-22) -

To know Christ as your Passover is to know real joy. A sense of completeness, assurance of the future. Ours is not a sad, gloomy religion, but one of happiness and contentment, anticipation.

VI. (Josh. 5:10-15) - To prepare you for the battles of life…

Notice they are about to march about Jericho and the Captain of their Salvation makes an appearance - Christ will give you direction.

VII. The 7th - What else would we expect but Jesus Christ’s - Passover to be the last and perfect one!
