Spoke 2 - Beyt - Christ our Passover
Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the
whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you
truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.
I Corinthians 5.6
The great symbol of our redemption through Christ, the Passover Lamb, is established in
the Second Book, Exodus (chapter 12). It integrates with the nature of the Second Person of
the Godhead, and His sacrifice for us, as it is written (Exodus 4.22):
And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even
my firstborn: And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me:
and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.
This verse contains the first declaration of God's Son found in Scripture. It is deeply integrated
Second Psalm and the nature of God the Son
and many Beyt KeytWords such as (Ben, Son), (Bokher, Firstborn),
and (Barakh, Blessing), as discussed in
The Structure of Exodus. We also have a KeyLink between Exodus and I Corinthians based on the Passover Lamb.
Searching the entire KJV for all verses containing the set (Passover, Sacrifice*, Leaven) [Verify] yields exatly two verses; the one quoted from I Corinthians above, and this one from
Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven;
the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the morning.
We have the KeyLink:
|KeyLink Set: (Passover, Sacrifice*, Leaven)|
This is the essence of Exodus - the Redemption wrought through the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Lamb
of God - our Passover. Theology is reiterated by God in the geometry of His Holy Word. Praise Him for
His awesome Wisdom!
