Today’s Topic:

Yehovah’s Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread review


[1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
[2] This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
[3] Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
[4] And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.
[5] Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

[6] And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
[7] And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

[8] And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire (the lamb), and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
[9] Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.
[10] And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.
[11] And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is Yehovah's passover.

[12] For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am Yehovah.
[13] And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

[14] And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to Yehovah throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

[15] Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

[16] And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.

[17] And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.


[18] In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.
[19] Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.
[20] Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.

[21] Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.

[22] And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.

[23] For Yehovah will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, Yehovah will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

[24] And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever.

[25] And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which Yehovah will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.
[26] And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?
[27] That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of Yehovah's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses

And the people bowed the head and worshipped.

[28] And the children of Israel went away, and did as Yehovah had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

[29] And it came to pass, that at midnight Yehovah smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharoah that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
[30] And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
[31] And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve Yehovah, as ye have said.
[32] Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also.
[33] And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead men.
[34] And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders.
[35] And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment:
[36] And Yehovah gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.
[37] And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children.
[38] And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.
[39] And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victual.
[40] Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.
[41] And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of Yehovah went out from the land of Egypt.

[42] It is a night to be much observed unto Yehovah for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of Yehovah to be observed of all the children of Israel in their generations.

[43] And Yehovah said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:
[44] But every man's servant that is bought for money, when thou hast circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.

[45] A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.

[46] In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.

[47] All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.


[48] And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to Yehovah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.

[49] One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.

[50] Thus did all the children of Israel; as Yehovah commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
[51] And it came to pass the selfsame day, that Yehovah did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.


Deut.16 - eat unleavened bread, the bread of affliction

[1] Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto Yehovah thy God: for in the month of Abib Yehovah thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.

[2] Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto Yehovah thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which Yehovah shall choose to place his name there.
[3] Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.
[4] And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there anything of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning.

[5] Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which Yehovah thy God giveth thee:
[6] But at the place which Yehovah thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.

[7] And thou shalt roast and eat it in the place which Yehovah thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents.
[8] Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yehovah thy God: thou shalt do no work therein.



[19] And the children of the captivity kept the passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.

[20] For the priests and the Levites were purified together, all of them were pure, and killed the passover for all the children of the captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves.
[21] And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek Yehovah God of Israel, did eat,
[22] And kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with joy: for Yehovah had made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of God, the God of Israel.

Exod.23 [15] Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)

Exod.34 [18] The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.

Lev.23 [6] And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto Yehovah: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.

Josh.5 [10] And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho.[11] And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame day.



[1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
[2] Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season.

[3] In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.
[4] And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover.
[5] And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that Yehovah commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.

[6] And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:
[7] And those men said unto him, We are defiled by the dead body of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an offering of Yehovah in his appointed season among the children of Israel?

[8] And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what Yehovah will command concerning you.

[9] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

[10] Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto Yehovah.
[11] The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
[12] They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it.
[13] But the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought not the offering of Yehovah in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.
[14] And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto Yehovah; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land.

Num.28 [17] And in the fifteenth day of this month is the feast: seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten.[18] In the first day shall be an holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work therein:

[25] And on the seventh day ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work.


2Chr.30 - They did what God said in Num. 9 above.

[1] And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of Yehovah at Jerusalem, to keep the passover unto Yehovah God of Israel.

[2] For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second month.
[3] For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem.
[4] And the thing pleased the king and all the congregation.
[5] So they established a decree to make proclamation throughout all Israel, from Beer-sheba even to Dan, that they should come to keep the passover unto Yehovah God of Israel at Jerusalem: for they had not done it of a long time in such sort as it was written.
[6] So the posts went with the letters from the king and his princes throughout all Israel and Judah, and according to the commandment of the king, saying, Ye children of Israel, turn again unto Yehovah God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and he will return to the remnant of you, that are escaped out of the hand of the kings of Assyria.

[7] And be not ye like your fathers, and like your brethren, which trespassed against Yehovah God of their fathers, who therefore gave them up to desolation, as ye see.
[8] Now be ye not stiffnecked, as your fathers were, but yield yourselves unto Yehovah, and enter into his sanctuary, which he hath sanctified for ever: and serve Yehovah your God, that the fierceness of his wrath may turn away from you.
[9] For if ye turn again unto Yehovah, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for Yehovah your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him.

[10] So the posts passed from city to city through the country of Ephraim and Manasseh even unto Zebulun: but they laughed them to scorn, and mocked them.
[11] Nevertheless divers of Asher and Manasseh and of Zebulun humbled themselves, and came to Jerusalem.
[12] Also in Judah the hand of God was to give them one heart to do the commandment of the king and of the princes, by the word of Yehovah.
[13] And there assembled at Jerusalem much people to keep the feast of unleavened bread in the second month, a very great congregation.
[14] And they arose and took away the altars that were in Jerusalem, and all the altars for incense took they away, and cast them into the brook Kidron.
[15] Then they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the second month: and the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought in the burnt offerings into the house of Yehovah.
[16] And they stood in their place after their manner, according to the law of Moses the man of God: the priests sprinkled the blood, which they received of the hand of the Levites.
[17] For there were many in the congregation that were not sanctified: therefore the Levites had the charge of the killing of the passovers for every one that was not clean, to sanctify them unto Yehovah.

[18] For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim, and Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet did they eat the passover otherwise than it was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, The good Yehovah pardon every one [19] That prepareth his heart to seek God, Yehovah God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary.

[20] And Yehovah hearkened to Hezekiah, and healed the people.

[21] And the children of Israel that were present at Jerusalem kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with great gladness: and the Levites and the priests praised Yehovah day by day, singing with loud instruments unto Yehovah.  J

[22] And Hezekiah spake comfortably unto all the Levites that taught the good knowledge of Yehovah: and they did eat throughout the feast seven days, offering peace offerings, and making confession to Yehovah God of their fathers.
[23] And the whole assembly took counsel to keep other seven days: and they kept other seven days with gladness.
[24] For Hezekiah king of Judah did give to the congregation a thousand bullocks and seven thousand sheep; and the princes gave to the congregation a thousand bullocks and ten thousand sheep: and a great number of priests sanctified themselves.
[25] And all the congregation of Judah, with the priests and the Levites, and all the congregation that came out of Israel, and the strangers that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah, rejoiced.
[26] So there was great joy in Jerusalem: for since the time of Solomon the son of David king of Israel there was not the like in Jerusalem.
[27] Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to his holy dwelling place, even unto heaven.


2 Kgs.22  -  Josiah, king of Judah

[1] Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty and one years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jedidah, the daughter of Adaiah of Boscath.
2] And he did that which was right in the sight of Yehovah, and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left.

[3] And it came to pass in the eighteenth year of king Josiah, that the king sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, the son of Meshullam, the scribe, to the house of Yehovah, saying,[4] Go up to Hilkiah the high priest, that he may sum the silver which is brought into the house of Yehovah, which the keepers of the door have gathered of the people:

[5] And let them deliver it into the hand of the doers of the work, that have the oversight of the house of Yehovah: and let them give it to the doers of the work which is in the house of Yehovah, to repair the breaches of the house,
6] Unto carpenters, and builders, and masons, and to buy timber and hewn stone to repair the house.

[7] Howbeit there was no reckoning made with them of the money that was delivered into their hand, because they dealt faithfully.
8] And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of Yehovah. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.

[9] And Shaphan the scribe came to the king, and brought the king word again, and said, Thy servants have gathered the money that was found in the house, and have delivered it into the hand of them that do the work, that have the oversight of the house of Yehovah.

[10] And Shaphan the scribe shewed the king, saying, Hilkiah the priest hath delivered me a book. And Shaphan read it before the king.

[11] And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of the book of the law, that he rent his clothes.

[12] And the king commanded Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Achbor the son of Michaiah, and Shaphan the scribe, and Asahiah a servant of the king's, saying,
13] Go ye, inquire of Yehovah for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great is the wrath of Yehovah that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.

[14] So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;) and they communed with her.
15] And she said unto them, Thus saith Yehovah God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you to me,

[16] Thus saith Yehovah, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah hath read:
17] Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.

[18] But to the king of Judah which sent you to inquire of Yehovah, thus shall ye say to him, Thus saith Yehovah God of Israel, As touching the words which thou hast heard;
[19] Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before Yehovah, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard thee, saith Yehovah.
[20] Behold therefore, I will gather thee unto thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace; and thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place. And they brought the king word again.

2 Kgs. 23

[1] And the king sent, and they gathered unto him all the elders of Judah and of Jerusalem.
[2] And the king went up into the house of Yehovah, and all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem with him, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the people, both small and great: and he read in their ears all the words of the book of the covenant which was found in the house of Yehovah.
[3] And the king stood by a pillar, and made a covenant before Yehovah, to walk after Yehovah, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes with all their heart and all their soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people stood to the covenant.
[4] And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of Yehovah all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for all the host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.
[5] And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.
[6] And he brought out the grove from the house of Yehovah, without Jerusalem, unto the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and stamped it small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people.
[7] And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of Yehovah, where the women wove hangings for the grove.
[8] And he brought all the priests out of the cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beer-sheba, and brake down the high places of the gates that were in the entering in of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were on a man's left hand at the gate of the city.
[9] Nevertheless the priests of the high places came not up to the altar of Yehovah in Jerusalem, but they did eat of the unleavened bread among their brethren.
[10] And he defiled Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech.
[11] And he took away the horses that the kings of Judah had given to the sun, at the entering in of the house of Yehovah, by the chamber of Nathan-melech the chamberlain, which was in the suburbs, and burned the chariots of the sun with fire.
[12] And the altars that were on the top of the upper chamber of Ahaz, which the kings of Judah had made, and the altars which Manasseh had made in the two courts of the house of Yehovah, did the king beat down, and brake them down from thence, and cast the dust of them into the brook Kidron.
[13] And the high places that were before Jerusalem, which were on the right hand of the mount of corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had builded for Ashtoreth the abomination of the Zidonians, and for Chemosh the abomination of the Moabites, and for Milcom the abomination of the children of Ammon, did the king defile.
[14] And he brake in pieces the images, and cut down the groves, and filled their places with the bones of men.
[15] Moreover the altar that was at Bethel, and the high place which Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, had made, both that altar and the high place he brake down, and burned the high place, and stamped it small to powder, and burned the grove.
[16] And as Josiah turned himself, he spied the sepulchres that were there in the mount, and sent, and took the bones out of the sepulchres, and burned them upon the altar, and polluted it, according to the word of Yehovah which the man of God proclaimed, who proclaimed these words.
[17] Then he said, What title is that that I see? And the men of the city told him, It is the sepulchre of the man of God, which came from Judah, and proclaimed these things that thou hast done against the altar of Bethel.
[18] And he said, Let him alone; let no man move his bones. So they let his bones alone, with the bones of the prophet that came out of Samaria.
[19] And all the houses also of the high places that were in the cities of Samaria, which the kings of Israel had made to provoke Yehovah to anger, Josiah took away, and did to them according to all the acts that he had done in Bethel.[20] And he slew all the priests of the high places that were there upon the altars, and burned men's bones upon them, and returned to Jerusalem.

[21] And the king commanded all the people, saying, Keep the passover unto Yehovah your God, as it is written in the book of this covenant.
[22] Surely there was not holden such a passover from the days of the judges that judged Israel, nor in all the days of the kings of Israel, nor of the kings of Judah;
[23] But in the eighteenth year of king Josiah, wherein this passover was holden to Yehovah in Jerusalem.

[24] Moreover the workers with familiar spirits, and the wizards, and the images, and the idols, and all the abominations that were spied in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, did Josiah put away, that he might perform the words of the law which were written in the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of Yehovah.
[25] And like unto him was there no king before him, that turned to Yehovah with all his heart, and with all his soul, and with all his might, according to all the law of Moses; neither after him arose there any like him.
[26] Notwithstanding Yehovah turned not from the fierceness of his great wrath, wherewith his anger was kindled against Judah, because of all the provocations that Manasseh had provoked him withal.
[27] And Yehovah said, I will remove Judah also out of my sight, as I have removed Israel, and will cast off this city Jerusalem which I have chosen, and the house of which I said, My name shall be there.
[28] Now the rest of the acts of Josiah, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?


1Cor.5 [7] Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened.

For even Messiah our Passover is sacrificed for us!

There are 28 matches for the word Passover in the Gospels and letters

Why wouldn’t you observe these days?


Let’s list all the commands and instructions pertaining to the Passover and the feast of unleavened bread.


We will be doing the Passover, and the feast of unleavened bread on God’s appointed days and time.

We will not be doing two or three Passovers as some other people do.


1: We are doing the Passover in memorial, an ordinance for ever.

We are not killing lambs and sprinkling the blood on the door posts, that would void out the Messiah, the Lamb of God and his shedding of blood for us, that would be an abomination.

2: We are eating the Passover meal on the evening of the 14th at evening.

3: We will be having roasted lamb, bitter herbs and unleavened bread, this is a memorial meal not a gourmet dinner.

4: We are not having an egg, shank bone or horseradish for the meal.

5: We are not charging anyone a fee for the Passover meal or selling tickets.

6: We will not be having 4 or 5 cups of wine and leaving one for Elijah and leaving the door open for him to come, he has come already, it was John the Baptist!

7: We will not be saying the Dayenu song.

The word "Dayenu" means approximately "it would have been enough for us", "it would have been sufficient", or "it would have sufficed"

8: No stranger that is not of the God of Israel will participate in our Passover.

9: All people must be circumcised in heart and all males must be circumcised in heart and flesh.

10: This is an offering time.

11: We will start the first day of the feast of unleavened bread in the evening right after the Passover as the 15th begins. We will be eating the Passover meal in the nighttime hours of the 15th.

12: The first day of unleavened bread is a Sabbath.

13: We will be eating unleavened bread for seven days.

14: The last day of unleavened bread is a Sabbath.

15: We do not pray in the Sabbath Queen for any of our sabbaths, that is spiritualism.

16: Where does it say to have special Passover plates and silverware? (Someone is making allot of money)

17: We are counting the "Sabbaths" not omers to get to the Feast of Weeks. (Pentecost)


"next thing not to do"


Manischewitz matzahs?

Rabbi Dov Behr Manischewitz, was born in Lithuania and immigrated to Cincinnati in 1886. He started out by supplying matzah to newly arrived Jewish immigrants who were heading west to seek a new and better life in America. It was very important to Rabbi Manischewitz that every Jew, even those in transit, be provided with matzah at Passover.


Rabbi Dov Behr Manischewitz' immigrated to Cincinnati in 1886.

Try not to use Rabbi Dov Behr Manischewitz's matzah at Passover. (even though they are good other times)

Moses did not use Rabbi Dov Behr Manischewitz's matzah at Passover - he was not born yet!

Yeshua did not use Rabbi Dov Behr Manischewitz's matzah at Passover - he was not born yet!

Yeshua is not a Rabbi Dov Behr Manischewitz's matzah. ( so many stories made up about that)

We make unleavened bread, that simple.


NEAR THE BEGINNING of a Passover Seder, a piece of matzah is broken in half.

The larger of the two pieces is hidden away until the end of the meal.

When it is brought back from concealment it is shared by everyone at the table as their final morsel. This broken and hidden piece of matzah is called the afikoman.

All this ceremony and the name afikoman are shrouded in mystery.

None of it is explained by the Haggadah.

Nor is it mentioned in Scripture.

The term appears first in the Mishnah (tractate Pesahim 10:8), the earliest collection of rabbinic legal rulings, codified around 200 AD. Though afikoman is written in Hebrew letters in rabbinic texts, it is actually a Greek word.

Jewish historians disagree why a Greek term entered the Passover liturgical tradition or what it means. As one of them said, "It is of uncertain etymology." Some think it is derived from epikomoi ("dessert") or from epi komon (a call for after dinner pastime, entertainment), or from epikomion ("festal song").

Over the centuries, its meaning has been lost or forgotten.



Remember:  The Passover, the Feast of Unleavened bread, First fruits and the Feast of Weeks are soon to come again.


Be ready


Shabbat Shalom
