Happy Passover! President Obama and the First Lady hosted a Seder at the White House last night.
At least to this christian, the passover and easter are very closely intertwined. Christ sacrificing His own life is the ultimate Passover sacrifice. That His death and resurrection occurred around the time of Passover is no accident. The shedding of His blood is the means of protecting the believer from the inevitable spiritual death due to sin. Christian doctrine has been muddled and secularized to the point where the lines between many religions have been blurred. That said, a Christian's spiritual experience of the Passover is very akin to the Jewish one, but stems from something deeper: that the original passover is a pictorial, and prophecy, of the Messiah's eventual death and sacrifice.
