Passover (Pesach)

April 11, 2012

I had the great joy of attending my first Passover seder, last night, with the congregation of Biet Messiah (www.beitmessiah.com).  It was very educational and a wonderful experience. Rabbi Matt Rosenberg explained all of the elements, their history and their meaning, as well as the four cups and what they represent, both in the past and for the future.

Beit Messiah is a Messianic Jewish Synagogue, which made it an even greater event.  As a Christian, living under the New Covenant, it was great to spend an uplifting evening with fellow believers.  As a gentile who, according to Romans 11:17, has been “grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing root of the olive tree…”, it was wonderful to share in this decidedly Jewish tradition as a celebration of God’s faithfulness to his people.

With greater enrichment, my wife and I feel so blessed to have found friends and believers of like mind and heart.  We are joining in the Counting of the Omer, as we look to Pentacost (Shavuot) with our Jewish brothers and sisters.
