Jesus Celebrates The Passover

26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” 27 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 29 But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” 30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Matthew 26:26–30 (NKJV)

Jesus established the Lord’s Supper, which we are observing on Passover day at our Calvary Chapel San Clemente with Pastor Holland Davis shortly after the Easter Celebration. You will see more in depth about Passover dinner and Jewish customs.

Jesus took bread, blessed, and broke it, He was blessing His broken body spiritually, His blood was shed to cleanse our sins and made us the new covenant. A man will be closer to God, which is through Jesus Christ.  Old covenant was a man related to God through Priest, and he offered a sacrifice an animal that pure body, or for a man’s sins. Then Priest would go to God for sinners. This covenant was established by the God, and continued year by year by the priesthood of Levi. It was done in the Holy of Holies.

“Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.” (1Cor.5:7) Because Jesus knew that His time is up since Judas’s betrayal, and He was arrested on during or shortly after the Passover dinner. Judas, son of Simon. He called him as Devil.  Paul said, “which were all a shadow of things to come. But the substance, the body is of Christ.”

Pastor Chuck Smith said, “All of the observances of the Passover feast in the Old Testament were all of them just looking forward to the actual Lamb of God, who would give His life for the sins of the world and establish a covenant whereby men through Him could come into a oneness with God. So that beautiful covenant we come to God through Jesus Christ.”

“Now when they had sung a hymn, they went out into the mount Olives (Mat. 26:30).

Can you imagine the twelve men singing the hymn after the Passover. They sung Psalm 136. “Hallel psalm.” Through this song, declares the glorious mercies of God. The law came by Moses, but grace and truth in Jesus Christ and God’s mercies for men.

I believe you all to see our Passover dinner coming soon in April at Calvary Chapel San Clemente. There is always someone will betray you anywhere in the world. Be aware and be ready.
