The Messiah in the Passover presentation, a vivid and exciting demonstration showing how Jesus fulfilled the ancient feast of Passover, will be held on April 5, at 7 p.m. at New Covenant Fellowship Church, 1326 North Moore Road.
Messiah in the Passover will be conducted by Rich Freeman of Chosen People Ministries.
Chosen People Ministries is an over one hundred-year-old mission that was founded in 1894 by Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian rabbi who came to believe that Jesus is the Messiah promised in the Hebrew Scriptures.
From humble beginnings in Brooklyn, New York, Chosen People Ministries has grown into a worldwide ministry to “the Jew first and to the Gentile.”
Messiah in the Passover begins with the traditional Passover Seder table-complete with all the articles of this important Jewish celebration. The speaker will explain the symbolic meanings of the various items of the Passover feast and highlight their relationship to the Last Supper that Messiah celebrated with the disciples, giving special emphasis on the redemptive significance of the crucifixion.
Messiah in the Passover gives the Christian community insight into Jewish traditions so that the Jewish roots of Christianity can be better understood. This program also helps the Jewish and Christian communities understand their common heritage.
This meeting is open to the public and New Covenant Fellowship Church would like to invite the Christian as well as the Jewish community to attend. For more information, call 423 899-8001.
