Denton Wesleyan Church:
Christ in the Passover
Jesus’ Last Supper was actually
a Jewish Passover.
Peter Blitshteyn of Jews for Jesus will re-create
the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus’ death and resurrection in a presentation called
“Christ in the Passover” at Denton Wesleyan Church on Friday, April 3rd (Good Friday) at 7:00 PM.
Peter Blitshteyn will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal
and detail their spiritual significance. He will also explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt
and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, as well as the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian
communion celebration today.
Jews for Jesus has presented “Christ
in the Passover” at over 38,000 churches. It has been enthusiastically received by Christians who appreciate learning
more about the Jewish backgrounds of their faith. Moishe Rosen, who founded Jews for Jesus in 1973, has also co-written the
book, Christ in the Passover, with his wife, Ceil. This seminal work includes a look at Passover in ancient times and how
it is practiced today. It will be available after the presentation. Also available will be a DVD of the Christ in the Passover
presentation with David Brickner, the executive director of Jews for Jesus, officiating.
Peter Blitshteyn will be happy to answer questions after the presentation.
