Jesus’ Last Supper was a Jewish Passover. Elizabeth L. Black of Jews for Jesus will re-create a traditional Passover Seder and explain how it foreshadowed the death and resurrection of Jesus in a presentation called “Christ in the Passover” at South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, on Tuesday, April 7, at 7:00 p.m.
Elizabeth L. Black will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance. Each attendee will taste and experience the full meaning of each element of the Seder. Elizabeth will explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption Jesus accomplished, and she will present the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and Christian communion celebration today.
Jews for Jesus has presented “Christ in the Passover” at over 38,000 churches. It is 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.

Reservations are required. Please make reservations online at southbaychurchli.org/passover or by calling the church office at 909-8241.
