For thousands of years, the Jewish people have celebrated the Passover Seder, remembering how God redeemed them from a life of slavery in Egypt. In the New Testament, we find that God designed this Passover meal (and even many of the Jewish traditions that surround it) to point His people to the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ.
John Pontier spent two and a half years living in Israel with his family, where they were privileged to participate in both Orthodox Jewish and Messianic Passover celebrations. They returned to the United States determined to remember God's provision as revealed in the Seder meal. Since then, John has led Seders for many different churches, including Household of Faith Community Church in Hillsboro, Oregon, where he serves as an elder.
This booklet will help you celebrate a Christ-centered Seder meal - a celebration of God's abundant grace and provision for His people.
This Christian version of the Passover Haggadah ("the telling" or Seder liturgy) includes:
Traditional blessings in both English and Hebrew
Relevant Scripture readings from Old and New Testaments
Preparation notes, checklists, and recipes to help you plan a Seder dinner for your own family or church group
Scripture quotations are from the NKJV translation.
