Brief outline of <Ex 7-12>:

  • <Ex 7-10>: First 9 plagues.
  • <Ex 11>: Warning about the last plague.
  • <Ex 12:1-13, 21-28, 43-49>: Importance and instructions of Passover.
  • <Ex 12:14-20>: The Feast of Unleavened Bread.
  • <Ex 12:29-30>: Last plague of the firstborn.
  • <Ex 12:31-42, 51>: Exodus!

 

<Ex 12> 1 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, 2 “This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year. 3 Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb[a] for his family, one for each household. 4 If any household is too small for a whole lamb, they must share one with their nearest neighbor, having taken into account the number of people there are. You are to determine the amount of lamb needed in accordance with what each person will eat. 5 The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats. 6 Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the members of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. 7 Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs. 8 That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast. 9 Do not eat the meat raw or boiled in water, but roast it over a fire—with the head, legs and internal organs. 10 Do not leave any of it till morning; if some is left till morning, you must burn it. 11 This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is the Lord’s Passover.

12 “On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord. 13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.

 

The Passover.

  • God’s people are safe even when God judges.
  • Through the blood of the lamb, God’s people can pass over from death into life.
  • A new beginning, new freedom, new identity, new destiny.

 

The Passover Lamb and His blood.

  • <1 Co 5:7>: Christ is our Passover Lamb, who has been sacrificed.
  • What’s so significant about Christ’s blood?

1) ACCEPTABLE.

    • Perfect sacrifice: Sinless, spotless.

2) PRICELESS.

    • Divine blood of God’s Son.

3) EFFECTIVE.

    • Once and for all, no need to repeat every year, unlike blood of animals <Heb 9-10>.
    • Not just died but also resurrected, triumphing over sin and death.
    • Christ’s blood is not just effective, but only His blood is effective to save sinners.
  • Nothing but the blood of Christ can save!
  • Blood both an expiation (atonement to take away our guilt) and propitiation (atonement to turn away God’s wrath) for our sins.
  • Are we covered by the blood of Christ when we stand before God?
  • The Lamb not just shed blood to save us, but we are to feed on the Lamb <cf. Jn 6:35, 50, 54>

 

The blood as a sign <v13>.

1) The blood as a sign to distinguish God’s people vs those who are not.

  • Blood as a sign of covenant between God and His people.
  • Blood as a sign that we are to be set apart for Him.

2) The blood is a sign to the Israelites.

  • Sign of God’s protection and love.

3) The blood is also a sign to God.

  • Sign for God to pass over us in His fierce wrath and judgment.
