In 1Corinthians 5:7 it mentions that "For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us." John the Baptist saw Jesus walking by and said, "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world." He was correct. Jesus was crucified on the exact day, at the exact time that the head of each house would sacrifice the lamb for his family. Amazing!!! In Jewish tradition and covenant, a lamb was sacrificed each year on the 14th day of the first month. They would separate this lamb for five days and prepare it by grooming, feeding and getting familiar with it, knowing it would be sacrificed! Yeshua was just as the lamb prepared by Jewish fathers. We need to set Him apart, knowing He too was innocent but was sacrificed so we could be reconciled to God. He Still is the Lamb who takes our sins away. Never forget that we as believers in our Lord and our Savior get to sit with Him at the His table!!!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
