Jesus, the Passover Lamb

At the Passover table

for the sake of his

remembrance,

Jesus commanded

his disciples saying

eat the bread;

“…my body which is

broken for you”,

drink the wine;

“…the new

testament in my blood:”

At the Passover table,

I, his disciple obey his

command:

my eating of the bread, his body

is the crushing of my enemy,

my drinking of the wine, his blood

is the draining away of my sin.

In Jesus, the Passover Lamb,

I pass over from death to life

for the curse is broken,

and death is forsaken.

At the Passover table,

eating,

I no more hunger

for worldliness.

Drinking,

I no more thirst

for sinfulness.

For in the Pass Over,

I have resurrection life.

“25Jesus said… “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will still live, even if he dies. 26Whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25 WEB)
