It was now the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread. This was the day when the Jews killed the lambs for the Passover. Jesus’ followers came to him. They said, “We will go and prepare everything for you to eat the Passover meal. Where do you want us to have the meal?”
— Mark 14:12 ERV (Read Full Text)
Jesus is our Passover Lamb. Mark wants us to know that Jesus will go to his death in the context of the Jewish Passover and God’s great deliverance of his people from Egypt. Jesus brings us deliverance in the events that lie ahead. That deliverance, however, will require a sacrifice. Jesus chooses to be that perfect sacrifice for our sins.
Righteous and holy Father, the God Almighty, thank you for my deliverance from sin. Thank you for the sacrifice that Jesus made in his body to deliver me from sin and death. And thank you Lord Jesus, in whose name I pray, for the incredible price you paid to cleanse me. Amen.
