Read: Exodus 12:1-30; Isaiah 53; 1 Corinthians 5:7
What is the meaning of the Passover lamb? According to verses 12-13, what happened on that night when the Lord freed the Israelite slaves from Egypt? Isaiah 53 describes what the death of our Passover Lamb was like. Who is our Passover Lamb? What does it mean to you that He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows; that by His stripes (wounds) we are healed? Think about the descriptors of Isaiah 53: despised, rejected, stricken by God, smitten by Him, pierced, crushed, punished, wounded, oppressed, and afflicted, a lamb to the slaughter. What imagery do these words give? Jesus is worthy to be our eternal King because he was slain - an innocent Lamb dying for the sins of the world.
