Glimpse backwards to a Jewish family celebrating Passover and selecting their chosen Passover lamb. Witness the father's changed heart as he sees the triumphal entry into Jerusalem of the "Rabbi Jesus" and ultimate crucifixion on the cross. Will the sacrified "Rabbi Jesus," the True Passover Lamb of God, save the family’s chosen lamb? Will this be their last lamb?
My mother woke me in her own special way, “Wake up,” she whispered, “Passover begins today.” On Passover we celebrate Moses’ leading Israel free, They were told what to take, what to eat, and what to leave. A spotless lamb’s blood was to cover the door post of the home So the Angel of Death knew which families to leave alone.
My absolute favorite day of all, Is Lamb Selection day, when we go to the newborn stall. We select the “chosen” lamb, perfect and spot free, Then during Passover, this lamb is offered as a sacrifice for my family and me.
