All Christians should attend a Seder meal, preferably held by a completed Jew who can explain the symbolism as I outline below. It is a meal that Jesus would have conducted every year.

A little background first. The Passover is when the Jewish slaves of Egypt put the blood of a lamb over their door so that death passed over the house that night as the final plague on Egypt so they would free the Jews.

The Passover Seder is a Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover. The elements are symbols of events with the purpose allowing each generation to remember what occurred in the time of Moses. The Hebrew word Seder means “order.” The Passover meal has a specific order in which food is eaten, prayers are recited, and songs are sung. Each item on the Passover plate has a specific historical meaning related to the exodus of the Jews from Egypt and their freedom from slavery. Most of the elements are historical, and some are messianic.

Passover is also the day Jesus was crucified.

One of the elements is the shank bone of a lamb to symbolize the placement of blood over the doors in Egypt. John 1:29, Jesus is the lamb of God. His blood saves all who accept Him.

The instructions for the original Passover specified that the lamb’s bones could not be broken, another foreshadowing of Christ’s death as the prophecy of the death of Jesus would not have his bones broken. (Crucifixion requires the use of the legs to fill the lungs with air. If they wanted to speed things along the legs of the person being crucified were broken. The two crucified with Jesus had their legs broken, Jesus was dead when they got to him. Then his side was pierced to make sure.)



Matzoh is unleavened bread to remember when the fleeing Jews did not have time to let the bread rise. It is flat, pierced, and striped as an end product.

Isaiah 53:5

But He was pierced for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.




Jesus was bruised, whipped and pierced.

Three matzoh are placed in a linen bag. Jews do not know why they place three in the bag. Christians recognize this as Father, Son, Holy Spirit.


There are three pouches in the bag, one for each matzoh. The middle matzoh is broken in half. One half remains inside the bag, the other is wrapped in linin and hidden until the end of the meal. As stated earlier, no one knows why three. Some Jews believe they represent Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But they cannot explain why Isaac is broken. Christians recognize this as the broken body of Christ. The other half removed is wrapped in a linen cloth and hidden. Christians recognize this as the linen wrapped body placed into a tomb.

There are also four cups of wine used at various points during the Seder. Each of these glasses of wine has a name: the first glass is the “cup of sanctification.” The second is the “cup of judgment.” The third is the “cup of redemption.” And the fourth is the “cup of praise.” At the Last Supper Jesus took the first cup and promised His disciples that the next time He drank the fruit of the vine with them would be in the kingdom. Later in the Seder, Jesus took the third cup—the cup of redemption—and used that cup as a symbol of the New Covenant in His blood. Thus Jesus fulfilled the Passover symbolism and infused the whole feast with a new meaning.

At the end of the meal tradition has the children go and find the hidden half of matzoh. When it is found it is removed from the linen and the festivities can begin. Christians see this as the resurrection.
Are we even sure the Israelites were slaves in Egypt? Archeological digs in Palestine show that, except for the absence of pig bones, there are no obvious differences between them and other Canaanites and no evidence of destruction of cities, as mentioned in the Bible, found in the correct time period. I also noticed that the description of Haroset mentions the pyramids, despite the fact that they were already a thousand years old when the Israelites were supposed to have resided in Egypt.
Whether or not the stories are factually correct is irrelevant, for the most part.

There's no physical evidence that a man named Jesus ever existed, either.
No evidence other than numerous historical records.
Even Mohamed acknowledged Jesus existed, hate monger troll.
Mohamed heard voices in a bat cave
Mohamed heard voices in a bat cave
“Holy cow, Batman, you mean the 72 Virgins all look like Nancy Pelosi!?

Yet again you validate you are stupid in all topics.

A Jew born a Jew is a Jew until they die.
Sure. They are a Jew until they die.

But as soon as they start worshipping Jesus, they are no longer practicing the religion of Judaism.
Dufus doesn't know Jews can be any faith.
:lol:

Fuckwit is trolling his own thread because he's butthurt.

Why don't you go to your local synagoge, and ask the Rabbi what he thinks of your little theories?
Shitforbrains doesn't know Jew is also a race of people.
:lol:

You know that I'm a Jew, right?
Some Jew.
Posts on the Sabbath.
lol ... good one. And, claiming Christianity isn't a sect of Judaism is just crazy talk, most likely from a racist Jewsih bigot as well.

Evidence for Jews in Egypt? There is evidence Jewish soldiers occupied a fort on the Nile river circa 700 B.C., for one; not sure if they were slave soldiers, as was the case for the Jewish soldiers who served with the Muslim invaders of Spain, but there is evidence of Jewish and Egyptian and Israeli relations over a long period. I'll try and find a pdf available online on Jewish military history that presents th evidence for the fort .

This is the sort of post for which I would like an 'informative' and/or 'thanks' button.

It's my understanding that the Israelites acted as mercenaries in Egypt, usually securing the borders of Egypt, is documented in Egyptian records. As desert nomads they would have been well suited to the task. There are no Egyptian documents that show the Israelites were held as slaves in any great numbers but I have no doubt some were taken as spoils of war during Egyptian invasions of Palestine.

Picaro remains, as usual, confused. The Iberian peninsula was
invaded and populated by lots of different people in the seventh
century. -----the Visigoths and the Romans prominently, with \
increasing ROMAN empire building in the southern parts of Europe
under the brutal hand of Emperor Justinian, jews, who had been
there since the fall of the second Temple (70 AD) came under
brutal Christian oppression------as did muslim berbers who
were, relatively speaking, newcomers and Visigoths. Strife was continuous for at least 200 years with muslims taking control of large
parts of Spain----
until the Reconquista starting at about the seventh century ----and
extending in waves of "win-some, lose some" between muslim
and Christians and eventually Christians prevailed. Jews got along
with Berbers and, got scattered into North Africa and also migrated
to established jewish communities in Turkey. Jews of North Africa
and Turkey, now mostly the descendants thereof, still speak spanish

Just tested it and it's still open, but probably best to start your own thread there, until somebody addresses the issue.

Of course as usual Rosie is compelled to throw out all kinds of BS covering 2,000 years of her fake version of Jewish history she learned from hard core Chasidic racists in NYC or where ever.

Correct; the term 'slaves' had different connotations back then, hence me not being certain of their status. They occupied a fort at the edge of the 'Empire' far down river. Mansa Musa was a 'slave' as well, though a general, a king, or whatever, according to whose bios one reads.

I don't think all the tribes were that 'nomadic' by 700 B.C., though; that's close to the times of Saul, Solomon, and David, and the Dual Kingdoms period, iirc, need to check my dates on that one.

based on the fact of incessant Egyptian empire building in the Pharonic era----from 3000 BC and 2500 years thereafter AND the
fact of incessant fighting between Egypt and Mesopotamia-----it is
like that there were some jewish settlements out there in the eastern
part of Egypt. There were even some jewish settlements in Egypt in
the early CE (AD) times. Alexandria was chock full of jews-----however BY that time "nomadic" jews was a thing of the past. Jews tended toward agriculture on fixed land in Palestine and
outside of Palestine in cities----mostly ports

These sources go back to around the 6th Century or so, so it should be easy to squeeze another couple of centuries earlier in there somewhere, given they were large enough of a tribal confederation to be fairly solid presences in ME politics as a buffer for Egyptian foreign policy and the like before then.



Or maybe I got the 700 B.C. number from another story in the history, I don't know, but I know the Elephantine fortress was what I was thinking about. Now I just need to find that article ...

you heard stuff like that from Chassids?-------I doubt it. For Chassids jews at that time were either in Babylon or Jerusalem doing the
Talmud or in Alexandria and a few in Rome

The Passover Seder is a Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover. The elements are symbols of events with the purpose allowing each generation to remember what occurred in the time of Moses. The Hebrew word Seder means “order.” The Passover meal has a specific order in which food is eaten, prayers are recited, and songs are sung. Each item on the Passover plate has a specific historical meaning related to the exodus of the Jews from Egypt and their freedom from slavery. Most of the elements are historical, and some are messianic.

The instructions for the original Passover specified that the lamb’s bones could not be broken, another foreshadowing of Christ’s death as the prophecy of the death of Jesus would not have his bones broken. (Crucifixion requires the use of the legs to fill the lungs with air. If they wanted to speed things along the legs of the person being crucified were broken. The two crucified with Jesus had their legs broken, Jesus was dead when they got to him. Then his side was pierced to make sure.)



Matzoh is unleavened bread to remember when the fleeing Jews did not have time to let the bread rise. It is flat, pierced, and striped as an end product.

Isaiah 53:5

But He was pierced for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.




Jesus was bruised, whipped and pierced.

Three matzoh are placed in a linen bag. Jews do not know why they place three in the bag. Christians recognize this as Father, Son, Holy Spirit.


There are three pouches in the bag, one for each matzoh. The middle matzoh is broken in half. One half remains inside the bag, the other is wrapped in linin and hidden until the end of the meal. As stated earlier, no one knows why three. Some Jews believe they represent Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But they cannot explain why Isaac is broken. Christians recognize this as the broken body of Christ. The other half removed is wrapped in a linen cloth and hidden. Christians recognize this as the linen wrapped body placed into a tomb.

There are also four cups of wine used at various points during the Seder. Each of these glasses of wine has a name: the first glass is the “cup of sanctification.” The second is the “cup of judgment.” The third is the “cup of redemption.” And the fourth is the “cup of praise.” At the Last Supper Jesus took the first cup and promised His disciples that the next time He drank the fruit of the vine with them would be in the kingdom. Later in the Seder, Jesus took the third cup—the cup of redemption—and used that cup as a symbol of the New Covenant in His blood. Thus Jesus fulfilled the Passover symbolism and infused the whole feast with a new meaning.

At the end of the meal tradition has the children go and find the hidden half of matzoh. When it is found it is removed from the linen and the festivities can begin. Christians see this as the resurrection.
Are we even sure the Israelites were slaves in Egypt? Archeological digs in Palestine show that, except for the absence of pig bones, there are no obvious differences between them and other Canaanites and no evidence of destruction of cities, as mentioned in the Bible, found in the correct time period. I also noticed that the description of Haroset mentions the pyramids, despite the fact that they were already a thousand years old when the Israelites were supposed to have resided in Egypt.
Whether or not the stories are factually correct is irrelevant, for the most part.

Interesting.

So, while you openly and unapologetically enjoy trolling other people's beliefs, criticizing your beliefs is apparently crossing a line.

What other double standards do you have, oh good Christian?
You seem horribly biased against Christians and seem unable to believe that to a Christian, the Passover is indeed pointing absolutely to Jesus Christ. That is not "Trolling", in the same way that Muslims believe Christ is a prophet, but not the Son of God, is not "trolling" to Christians.

It is a deeply held belief.

trolling is in the eyeballs of the screen gazer. For jews, proselytizing
is a touchy topic for historic reasons. One of the most compelling
reasons is that the early church rendered the proselytizing by a jew of
a Christian, a CAPITAL CRIME. That law persisted until very recently. The law was aped by the muslims -----and still exists in shariah law.
For jews, the attempt to ascribe to jewish practices and writings, a
foretelling of the person Yeshua of Galilee as "messiah" amounts to proselytizing and is, therefore, offensive. It would probably be
more polite to say, when discussing such a concept....."Christians
believe......." rather than announcing it as "FACT"

Three matzoh are placed in a linen bag. Jews do not know why they place three in the bag. Christians recognize this as Father, Son, Holy Spirit.


There are three pouches in the bag, one for each matzoh. The middle matzoh is broken in half. One half remains inside the bag, the other is wrapped in linin and hidden until the end of the meal. As stated earlier, no one knows why three. Some Jews believe they represent Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But they cannot explain why Isaac is broken. Christians recognize this as the broken body of Christ. The other half removed is wrapped in a linen cloth and hidden. Christians recognize this as the linen wrapped body placed into a tomb.

There are also four cups of wine used at various points during the Seder. Each of these glasses of wine has a name: the first glass is the “cup of sanctification.” The second is the “cup of judgment.” The third is the “cup of redemption.” And the fourth is the “cup of praise.” At the Last Supper Jesus took the first cup and promised His disciples that the next time He drank the fruit of the vine with them would be in the kingdom. Later in the Seder, Jesus took the third cup—the cup of redemption—and used that cup as a symbol of the New Covenant in His blood. Thus Jesus fulfilled the Passover symbolism and infused the whole feast with a new meaning.

At the end of the meal tradition has the children go and find the hidden half of matzoh. When it is found it is removed from the linen and the festivities can begin. Christians see this as the resurrection.
There is not a single mention of boiled eggs at the Passover commemoration in the Scriptures.

This addition of the eggs is the common acquiring of gentile customs inserted as "tradition".

This is what Yeshu (Jesus) was against to: traditions of men over the Word of God.

The gentile tradition of Eastern (the egg) is the "yeast" added to the unleavened bread (pure doctrine).

Be aware that because it's "Jewish" it does mean is good. Trust God only.

You better follow the Scriptures instructions "by the book" and pay no attention to traditions of men.
