By r. a. — Monday, April 11/22

This year’s Passover and Seven Days of Unleavened Bread begin on Thurs, April 14, 2022. The first day and last day of Unleavened Bread are annual Sabbath days which can fall on any day of the week.

BTW, these are NOT JEWISH FEASTS/HOLY DAYS. They belong to the Creator-God, the great I AM, as noted in Lev.23: 2 –“these are MY FEASTS.

Basically, the Passover is a memorial of the ancient killing of a lamb whose blood was placed on the door posts of Israelites to protect them from the “death angel”. It commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt.

QUESTION – Did Messiah offer unleavened bread as a symbol of his body?

ANSWER — No! Here’s the proof!

Food-proof #1 —-Matt.26: verse 26

“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.” (Matt.26: 26)

Explanation: The term “bread”, in the above text, is the English for the Greek term “artos” #740 which means “a raised loaf” – leaven bread.

Messiah and his disciples were eating leaven bread not unleavened. The Greek term for “unleavened bread” is “azumos” #106.

Food-proof #2 —– 1 Cor.11 verse 23, 24

Quote Paul: “For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread” (verse 23)
24) “And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.”

Explanation: Notice Paul states that Messiah “took bread” (“artos” – a raised loaf, leaven) as also indicated above in Matt26 verse 26. It was not unleavened (“azumos”).

In sum, Messiah and his disciples ate “the Last Supper”, containing leavened bread, the evening before the killing of the Passover lamb the next day – the very day Messiah was crucified.

This topic is not a salvational issue, however, it is the truth!

All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM in Jesus’/Yahshua’s name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth — God’s Word (Jn.17:17 & Ps.119:142)

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
