Exodus 12 describes what happened in the Passover night. After God had told Pharao time and again to release his people Israel from slavery, the destroyer killed all the firstborn in Egypt, except for the firstborn who were protected by the blood of a lamb. And after this Passover night, Pharao released Israel and let them go. This shocking story leaves us with questions. Why the firstborn? And why did the blood of a lamb protect against the destroyer? Centuries later, Jesus celebrate the Passover with his disciples. Why does no one of the gospels mention the lamb? And why did Jesus have to die – like a lamb? The sermon will discuss these questions by putting them in the context.
