A Passover Seder is a service held at home as part of the Passover celebration. It is a remembrance of that first Passover which was the liberation from slavery in ancient Egypt.
During the last Passover that Jesus celebrated with his disciples he instituted communion or the Lord’s Supper. We are to do this in remembrance of the Lord Jesus and his sacrifice for our sins.
Jesus was the perfect lamb that was slain on our behalf. He never did anything wrong. He was the only one that could bear and pay for all the sins of the world. He was and is our Good Shepherd. He died so we might live.
As we reflect on this Thursday of Passion Week may we be thoughtful of the great love, compassion, and the keeping of a promise that God showed us at the Last Supper.
