Jesus, the Passover Lamb; Miracle or Masquerade?

Before the foundation of the world God knew He would have to be the ultimate final sacrifice for man’s sin. The Passover Lamb in Exodus freed the Hebrews from their slavery to the Egyptians. The coming of the Messiah was for the sole purpose of becoming the Passover Lamb who would ultimately free man from their slavery to sin, Satan and eternal death. Jesus Christ is the final Passover Lamb who voluntarily died for the sins of mankind. But, the most important fact of God’s plan of victory over sin, Satan and eternal death was His resurrection! The Body of Christ, the Church has its firm foundation and victory of hope through the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ (cf. 1 Cor. 15:3-4). Without the resurrection of Jesus Christ Christians are still in their sins and as the Apostle Paul stated in 1 Corinthians 15:19, “If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.”
