Two Weeks to Passover
With only about two weeks remaining, we warmly invite you to this year’s Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread in Holts Summit from the evening of March 31 – April 8. There are still plenty of tent and RV sites available. These observances promise to be a blessing for all in attendance. We have scheduled several worship services, Bible workshops, and activities, including volleyball, bingo, board games, open gym time, and much more. For those unable to be here in person, we will be broadcasting our Passover service (7:30 p.m., Central), the first and last High days, and weekly Sabbath. As a side note, those who partake of the Passover emblems must be baptized into “Yahshua’s” name, which, for those interested, we can provide on the Sabbath before the Passover. To learn more, visit us online.

Yahshua the Messiah died the same time as the Passover lamb in the Old Testament.

A. True
B. False

The New Testament confirms that Yahshua ate the Passover with the disciples on the evening of Abib 14 and died Passover day at 3:00 pm, Matthew 26-27. Based on the meaning of the Hebrew word “evening” as found in Exodus 12:6, the Passover lamb was killed between sunset and darkness at the beginning of Abib 14. Therefore, Yahshua did not die when the Passover lamb was slaughtered in the Old Testament. It was scripturally more important that Yahshua observe the Passover on the time appointed than die when the Passover lamb died in the Old Testament. If He did not observe the Passover at the proper time, He would have sinned and disqualified Himself as our Savior.


Correct: B
