SATURDAY 20th APRIL, 2019
The Passover feast includes Chag HaMatzah, the feast of unleavened bread, a symbol of being without sin. “and He was found to be without sin.” Luke 23:14. This always started the day after the sacrifice. On this Chag HaMatzah, Yeshua was in the grave.
The Feast of Unleavened Bread has been passed over with little interest other than to say that leaven is a sign of sin and to be without leaven a sign of being without sin. We know from scripture that the Israelites were told to eat only unleavened bread when leaving Egypt. Ex 12;15. Yeshua said to be aware of the leaven of the Pharisees, Matthew 16:6 and Paul reminds us that leaven is a symbol of sin, 1 Cor 5:6-8. There is a strong warning here for all who want to follow in the path of Yeshua.
