The Bible meaning of the Passover, for the New Testament Christian, revolves around the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. It is a memorial of his death as the true Lamb of God. Believers partake of unleavened bread and wine in remembrance of the sacrifice of Jesus’ beaten body and shed blood. This sacrifice makes possible the forgiveness of our sins. By partaking of the Passover symbols of bread and wine, we are proclaiming our continual faith in Jesus’ sacrifice.
“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! THE LAMB OF GOD who takes away the sin of the world! ” (John 1:29, see also 1Peter 1:18-19, 1Corinthians 11:23-26 and Matthew 26:19-20, 26-29)
