What is Passover?
This year’s Passover starts at April 8, 2020 at sundown and ends at April 16, 2020 on sundown.
Passover is one of the most important holidays on the Jewish calendar. Not only does it serve as a reminder of God’s faithfulness, but it points to the Lamb of God, the Messiah, who served as the once-for-all sacrifice for sin. This is why God commanded the Jewish people to observe the Feast of Passover from generation to generation.
Year after year, Passover reminds the Jewish people of the Lord’s faithfulness to His promises. God promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations and that his descendants would inherit the land of Israel as an eternal possession. But years later, the Jewish people found themselves enslaved in the land of Egypt. It would be understandable if they questioned God’s faithfulness, since the promise of a homeland seemed to have been broken.

The Four Cups of Passover

Passover: Promise and Fulfillment
The Feast of Passover commemorates God’s redemption of Israel from its 400-year enslavement in Egypt. Over 3,000 years ago, the Children of Israel suffered under the severe oppression of the Pharaoh.
