The Christian Holy Week is rooted in the Jewish celebration of Pesach (Passover). The week of Passover festivities celebrate how God delivered Israel from the bondage of Egyptian slavery. In Christianity, we celebrate Jesus as the Jewish Messiah who frees us from the bondage of sin and death. The latter flows from the foundation of the other.
I came across a fun video today that shows what would happen if today’s media reported the events of the first Passover. enjoy and Happy Passover/Pesach!
