Remember the Cross 10 Jul 16

Christianity had a bloody beginning. In fact the “blood of Jesus” is still a critical part of the Christian faith. Join us as we look into the connection between the blood of the Jewish Passover sacrifice and Jesus’ death on the cross.

3 Facts that we cannot ignore:

  • Fact #1: Mankind is under the wrath of God.
  • Fact #2: Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin.
  • Fact #3: Jesus became our passover lamb.

TEXT: Exodus 12:1-13; Exodus 12:24-30; Hebrews 9:22; Romans 3:25-26; John 3:36; 1 Peter 1:18-19

  1. Read Exodus 12:1-6.  Why did God want them to care for the sheep for a few days?
  2. Read Exodus 12:7-9.  What was the significance of blood on the doorpost?  Bitter herbs?  Unleavened bread?
    • What was God teaching the Israelites through these symbols?
  1. Read Exodus 12:10-13.  Discuss verse 13.  How did the angel passing over the homes with blood on the doorpost point to Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross?
  2. Read Exodus 12:24-30.  If you had been an Israelite on the morning after the Passover, how would you have felt?
  3. Read Hebrews 9:22.   Why does God require the shedding of blood to remove sin?
  4. Read John 3:36.  Discuss the phrase “under the wrath of God.”  What does that mean?
  5. Read 1 Peter 1:18-19.  Discuss the phrase, “Death cannot pass where death has already been.”  How did Jesus’ death on the cross satisfy the wrath of God that we deserved?
