A New Order Begins               Luke 22:7-20

The Preparation of the Passover Meal                                 V. 7-12

Passover is the OLDEST continually observed feast in existence today, celebrated for some 3,500 years.

The single word that best describes the Passover is the word REDEMPTION. Passover celebrates God’s redemption of Israel from Egyptian bondage. 

The Old Order Passover Meal                                               V. 14-18

You are aware that the Jewish Passover meal is called a Sedar meal. The word Sedar means “ORDER.” There is a definite “order” the meal came to follow in obeying the “order” given to observe this meal back in Exodus 12.

The New Order Lord’s Supper                                               V. 19-20

You may have called the Lord’s Supper called the Eucharist. That comes from the Greek word for “give THANKS,” Eucharisto.

Just as physical bread keeps us physically alive, TRUST in Jesus makes us spiritually alive! We are identifying by faith in what Christ has done for us.

In the Passover ceremony, they responsively read or sang Psalms 113-118 throughout the ceremony.

He raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap, that He may seat him with princes.           -Ps. 113:7-8a

I Corinthians 5:7 says that Christ is our Passover Lamb!

The pangs of death surrounded me, and the pangs of Sheol laid hold of me.                                                                      -Ps. 116:3

For you have delivered my soul from death…I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.                         -Ps. 116:8-9

Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go through them, and I will praise the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord, through which the righteous shall enter.               -Psalm 118:19-20

I will praise You, for you have answered me, and have become my salvation. The Stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.                                      -Psalm 118:21-22

Revelation 19:6-9

The Hebrew word Sedar means Order in English. The last Sedar meal Jesus took with His disciples turned into the First Lord’s Supper. In Jesus’ New Covenant Order, believers OBEY the Ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

Catholics are wrong in calling the Lord’s Supper and other things sacraments. They actually had 30 in the 1200’s – now they have 7.

Think of the genius of the Lord in giving us the 2 Ordinances…

I Corinthians 11:23-30
