Well written, simple explanations, plus a Passover Dinner Guide to help you plan a special event for you, your family and some friends.Rabbi Evan Moffic gives a clear explanation of what Passover means for the Jewish community and why they celebrate it in the ways that they do.

Such as, "during the Passover meal, when the plagues are recounted, we l [...]

    2. Many years ago I attended a Jews for Jesus event and I have always been struck by the soul of the Jewish people. How they have preserved and the ties they have in our Christian faith. As we Christians, we are grafted in because of the Jewish rejection of Christ as the Messiah.So I ask, did they stumble in order that they might fall? By no means! Rather through their trespass salvation has come to the Gentiles, so as to make Israel jealous. Romans 11:11.I have never attended a Seder Passover meal [...]

    5. This is an interesting book written by a Jewish Rabbi for Christians. All his life, he has celebrated Passover meals, and sometimes suffered through them when he was a boy and they tended to drag on.It begins with a good overview of the Bible's two most famous Passovers; the first one ever, observed by Moses, Aaron and Miriam on that tense night when Egypt's first born males were killed, and the one directly before Jesus' crucifixion, when he became the Lamb of God. I wonder how many young or mo [...]

    6. Rabbi Moffic is awesome. I read his other book What Every Christian Needs to Know about the Jewishness of Jesus on NetGalley and immediately put this on my to read list. It did not disappoint. Rabbi Moffic walks the reader through Passover ancient Temple style and rabbinic aka modern style. He uses a lovely conversational friendly tone but still packs a lot of Jewish theology and explanation into the text. Helpful study guide and handbook for Christians who want to celebrate Passover in at the e [...]
