Passover commemorates God deliverance of the Israelites from slavery. It’s the oldest and most important Jewish festival. Why do we celebrate it at Mustard Seed School?
The gospels note that Jesus celebrated the Passover many times. His last supper with his disciples was a Passover meal. One that began with Jesus washing the feet of his disciples.
At Mustard Seed, we celebrate the Passover meal on the Thursday of Holy Week, our last day of school before Easter Break. Together we’ve walked through a quiet, reflective Lent. During worship, we’ve listened to the stories of Jesus through the gospels. Seen the images of Jesus’ life reflected in art. We’ve walked the way of the cross.
Now, at Passover, we share a joyful meal together. Recount God’s faithfulness to his people, which is our story, too. At Passover, we celebrate the promise of the resurrection—even as we wait for the dawning of Easter morning.
