Yahovah’s Feasts in the New Testament – Part 2 – Passover
YAHOVAH’S FEASTS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
In this series of posts, we’re going to briefly list Yahovah’s biblical Feasts, show the commandment in the Old Testament, then list New Testament scriptures that show Yeshua HaMashiach, the apostles, or the church observing these eternal Feasts of Yahovah.
Leviticus 23:5, “In the first month [known as Nisan or Abib], on the fourteenth of the [lunar] month, between the evenings is the Passover to Yahovah.”
Examples of Passover observance in the New Testament:
Luke 2:41-42, “And His [Yeshua’s] parents went into Jerusalem year by year at the Feast of the Passover. 42And when He was twelve years old, they, going up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the Feast,”
Matthew 26:1-2, “And it happened, when Yeshua finished all these sayings, He said to His disciples, 2You know that the Passover is coming after two days, and the Son of Man is betrayed to be crucified.”
Matthew 26:17-19, “And on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened, the disciples came to Yeshua, saying to Him, Where do you desire we should prepare for You to eat the Passover? 18And He said, Go into the city to a certain one and say to him, our Master says, My time has arrived; with you I will prepare the Passover with My disciples. 19And the disciples did as Yeshua ordered them, and prepared the Passover.”
Mark 14:12-16, “And on the first day of the Unleavened Bread, when they killed the Passover, His disciples said to Him, Where do You desire that going we may prepare that You may eat the Passover? 13And He sent two of His disciples, and said to them, Go into the city. And you will meet a man carrying a vessel of water. Follow him. 14And wherever he goes in, say to the housemaster, The Master says, Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with My disciples? 15And behold he will show you a large upper room that is furnished. Make ready and prepare that place for us. 16And His disciples went out and came into the city and found it as He told them. And they prepared the Passover.”
Luke 22:1; 7-20, “And the Feast of Unleavened Bread, being called Passover, drew near. . . 7And the day of the Unleavened came, on which the Passover must be slaughtered. 8And He sent Peter and John, saying, Having gone, prepare for us the Passover, that we may eat. 9And they said to Him, Where do You desire that we prepare? 10And He said to them, Behold when you enter into the city you will meet up with a man who is bearing a skin of water. Go after him and where he enters, 11And you will say to the housemaster of that house, Our Master says to you, Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with My disciples? 12And that one will show you a large upper room which he has furnished. Prepare there. 13And having gone, they found as He had told them, and they prepared the Passover. 14And when the hour came, He reclined, and the twelve apostles with Him. 15And He said to them, I have greatly desired that I eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 16For I say to you that from now on, I will not eat of it again until when it is fulfilled in the kingdom of Yahovah! 17And taking a cup, giving thanks, He said, Take this and divide it among yourselves. 18For I say to you that I will not drink from the produce of the vine again until the kingdom of Yahovah comes! 19And He took bread and gave thanks and broke it and gave it to them and said, This is My body, which for your sake is given. Do this for My memorial. 20And in like manner the cup, after having supped, saying, This cup is the New Covenant in My blood, which is being shed for your sakes.”
John 2:13; 23, “And the Passover of the Jews was near. And Yeshua went up to Jerusalem. . . 23And as He was in Jerusalem, at the Passover, at the Feast, many believed into His name, seeing the miracles which He did.”
John 6:4, “And the Passover was near, the feast of the Jews.”
John 13:1-30, “And before the Feast of the Passover, Yeshua knowing that His hour had come that He should move from this world to the Father, loving His own in the world, He loved them to the end. 2And supper having occurred, the Devil having put already into the heart of Simon’s son Judas Iscariot that he should betray Him, 3Yeshua knowing that the Father has given all things into His hands, and that He came out from Yahovah, and goes away to Yahovah, 4He rose up from the supper and laid aside His garments. And taking a towel, He girded Himself. 5Then He put water into the basin and began to wash the feet of the disciples, and to wipe off with the towel with which He was girded. 6He then came to Simon Peter. And that one said to Him, Master, do You wash my feet? 7Yeshua answered and said to him, The thing that I do you do not understand now, but afterwards you will know. 8Peter said to Him, You may never wash my feet for me. Yeshua answered him, If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me. 9Simon Peter said to Him, Master, not my feet only, but also the hands and the head. 10Yeshua said to him, The one having been immersed has no need other than to wash the feet, for all of him is clean. And you are clean, but not all. 11For He knew the one betraying Him. For this reason He said, You are not all clean. 12Then when He had washed their feet and had taken His garments, reclining again, He said to them, Do you know what I have done to you? 13You call Me the Teacher, and, the Master. And you say well, for I AM. 14If then I washed your feet, the Master and the Teacher, you also ought to wash the feet of one another. 15For I gave you an example, that as I did to you, you also should do. 16Truly, truly, I say to you, A slave is not greater than his Master, nor a messenger greater than the one sending him. 17If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. 18I do not speak concerning all of you; I know whom I chose out; but that the Scripture might be fulfilled, “The one eating the bread with Me lifted up his heel against Me.” 19From now on I will say to you a thing before it happens, so that when it happens you will believe that I Am. 20Truly, truly, I say to you, The one who receives whomever I may send receives Me; and the one who receives Me receives the One who sent Me. 21Saying these things, Yeshua was troubled in spirit and testified and said, Indeed I tell you truly that one of you will betray Me.
22Then the disciples looked upon one another, doubting of whom He spoke. 23But there was one of His disciples reclining at the bosom of Yeshua, whom Yeshua loved. 24Then Simon Peter nods to him to ask whom it might be of whom He spoke. 25And leaning on the breast of Yeshua, he said to Him, Master, who is it? 26Yeshua answered, It is he to whom I, having dipped and give the bread to. And dipping the bread, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon. 27And after the bread, then Satan entered into that one. Then Yeshua said to him, What you do, do quickly. 28But no one of those reclining knew this, for what He spoke to him; 29for some thought, since Judas held the moneybag, that Yeshua was saying to him, Buy what things we have need of for the feast; or that he should give something to the poor. 30Then, receiving the bread, he immediately went out. And it was night.”
1 Corinthians 11:23-29, “For I received from the Master what I also delivered to you, that the Master Yeshua in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24and giving thanks, He broke and said, take, eat, this is My body which is broken on behalf of you, this do in remembrance of Me. 25In the same way the cup also, after supping, saying, this cup is the New Covenant in My blood, each time you drink it, do this in remembrance of Me. 26For each time that you may eat this bread, and drink this cup, you solemnly commemorate the death of our Master, until His coming. 27So that whoever should eat this bread, or drink the cup of the Master, unworthily, that one will be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Master. 28But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and let him drink of the cup; 29for he eating and drinking unworthily eats and drinks to his condemnation, not discerning the body of the Master.”
