Jews for Jesus offering ‘Christ in the Passover’ tonight

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, March 15, 2016

What do the Jewish Passover and Jesus’ last supper have in common? Bruce Rapp, with Jews for Jesus, will answer that question as he presents “Christ in the Passover” at 6:30 tonight, Tues., March 15, at the Kiwanis Community Center. The presentation includes a visual display of the Passover pageantry.


Jesus’ Last Supper was actually a Jewish Passover. Rapp will recreate the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus’ death and resurrection. He will explain the significance of the Passover from Egypt, to Calvary, and to what it means today.

Rapp will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance. He also will explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, as well as the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion celebration today.

Jews for Jesus has presented “Christ in the Passover” at more than 38,000 churches. Moishe Rosen, who founded Jews for Jesus in 1973 has also co-written the book “Christ in the Passover” with his wife, Ceil. The book, as well as a DVD of the presentation, will be available after the presentation.

There is no charge for admission, but a love offering will be accepted. For information, contact Pastor David Roy at (334) 572-4256.
