God’s Law Part II: Two Passover Lambs – Two Blood Covenants

5 April, 2023

Look! Listen! Focus! Pray that Jehovah God will open the eyes of your heart and your ears to hear the truth from His Word that you may experience the complete fulfillment of the prophecies foreshadowed by the Passover lamb in Egypt of the coming of God’s Sacrificial Passover Lamb, Yeshua in Jerusalem in 33AD.

The lamb represents innocence; doing no evil, free from sin or wrong, doing no harm, freedom from guilt, and not transgressing the law.  Just as a young child who is not yet consciously acquainted with evil has done no wrong.  The lamb must be without spot; no discoloration, as white as snow; the lamb without blemish; no bruises, cuts, or deformities.

1 ADONAI spoke to Moshe and Aharon in the land of Egypt; he said, 2 “You are to begin your calendar with this month; it will be the first month of the year for you. 3 Speak to all the assembly of Isra’el and say, ‘On the tenth day of this month, each man is to take a lamb or kid for his family, one per household – 4 except that if the household is too small for a whole lamb or kid, then he and his next-door neighbor should share one, dividing it in proportion to the number of people eating it. 5 Your animal must be without defect, a male in its first year, and you may choose it from either the sheep or the goats. 6 “‘You are to keep it until the fourteenth day of the month, and then the entire assembly of the community of Isra’el will slaughter it at dusk. 7 They are to take some of the blood and smear it on the two sides and top of the doorframe at the entrance of the house in which they eat it. 8 That night, they are to eat the meat, roasted in the fire; they are to eat it with matzah and maror. 9 Don’t eat it raw or boiled, but roasted in the fire, with its head, the lower parts of its legs and its inner organs. 10 Let nothing of it remain till morning; if any of it does remain, burn it up completely. 11 “‘Here is how you are to eat it: with your belt fastened, your shoes on your feet and your staff in your hand; and you are to eat it hurriedly. It is ADONAI’s Passover. 12 For that night, I will pass through the land of Egypt and kill all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both men and animals; and I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt; I am ADONAI. 13 The blood will serve you as a sign marking the houses where you are; when I see the blood, I will pass over [Hebrew: pasach] you.” Exodus 12

Blood is life; the life of the flesh is in the blood.  In reading the passage above one sees the action of putting blood on the two sides and top of the doorframe, an exercise of faith to save the life of the firstborn.  By faith, they believed and obeyed.  God is complete truth and cannot lie.  Obedience to God’s next passage, Passover in Jerusalem AD33, is also a matter of life and death.

7 Then came the day of matzah, on which the Passover lamb had to be killed. 8 Yeshua sent Kefa and Yochanan, instructing them, “Go and prepare our Seder, so we can eat.” 9 They asked him, “Where do you want us to prepare it?” 10 He told them, “As you’re going into the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him into the house he enters, 11 and say to its owner, `The Rabbi says to you, “Where is the guest room, where I am to eat the Pesach meal with my talmidim?” ‘ 12 He will show you a large room upstairs already furnished; make the preparations there.” 13 They went and found things just as Yeshua had told them they would be, and they prepared for the Seder. 14 When the time came, Yeshua and the emissaries reclined at the table, and he 15 said to them, “I have really wanted so much to celebrate this Seder with you before I die! 16 For I tell you, it is certain that I will not celebrate it again until it is given its full meaning in the Kingdom of God.” Luke 22

1 It was just before the festival of Pesach, and Yeshua knew that the time had come for him to pass from this world to the Father. Having loved His own people in the world, He loved them to the end. 2 They were at supper, and the Adversary had already put the desire to betray Him into the heart of Y’hudah Ben-Shim`on from K’riot. 3 Yeshua was aware that the Father had put everything in His power, and that He had come from God and was returning to

God. 4 So He rose from the table, removed His outer garments and wrapped a towel around His waist. 5 Then He poured some water into a basin and began to wash the feet of the talmidim and wipe them off with the towel wrapped around Him.  

12 After He had washed their feet, taken back His clothes and returned to the table, He said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? 13 You call me `Rabbi’ and `Lord,’ and you are right, because I am. 14 Now if I, the Lord and Rabbi, have washed your feet, you also should wash each other’s feet. 15 For I have set you an example, so that you may do as I have done to you. John 13
Yeshua came to serve and this example is the height of humility!
17 Then, taking a cup of wine, he made the b’rakhah and said, “Take this and share it among yourselves. 18 For I tell you that from now on, I will not drink the `fruit of the vine’ until the Kingdom of God comes.” 19 Also, taking a piece of matzah, He made the b’rakhah, broke it, gave it to them and said, “This is My body, which is being given for you; do this in memory of Me.” 20 He did the same with the cup after the meal, saying, “This cup is the New Covenant, ratified by My blood, which is being poured out for you.” Luke 22
The Passover meal has ended.  Now the unveiling of the truth begins as we see the progressive revelation that began as a shadow in Egypt, being fulfilled in the reality of the once-for-all sacrifice of God’s loving Lamb – His Son, Yeshua!

Yeshua’s statement says it all:

And Yeshua took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body given for you; Do this in Remembrance of Me.” Luke 22:19
From this time forward, Passover has taken on a full and complete reality of truth; behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.
17 As Yeshua was going up to Yerushalayim, he took the twelve talmidim aside by themselves and said to them, as they went on their way, 18 “We are now going up to Yerushalayim, where the Son of Man will be handed over to the head cohanim and Torah-teachers. They will sentence him to death 19 and turn him over to the Goyim, who will jeer at him, beat him and execute Him on a stake as a criminal. But on the third day, He will be raised.”
Matthew 20
As we’ll see next, these exact events were prophesied by Isaiah hundreds of years before Yeshua’s birth.
13 “See how my servant will succeed! He will be raised up, exalted, highly honored! 14 Just as many were appalled at him, because he was so disfigured that he didn’t even seem human and simply no longer looked like a man, 15 so
now he will startle many nations; because of him, kings will be speechless. For they will see what they had not been told, they will ponder things they had never heard.” Isaiah 52


Isaiah 53
1 Who believes our report? To whom is the arm of ADONAI revealed? 2 For before him He grew up like a young plant, like a root out of dry ground. He was not well formed or especially handsome; we saw Him, but His appearance did not attract us. 3 People despised and avoided Him, a man of pains, well acquainted with illness. Like someone from whom people turn their faces, He was despised; we did not value Him. 4 In fact, it was our diseases He bore, our pains from which He suffered; yet we regarded Him as punished, stricken and afflicted by God. 5 But He was wounded because of our crimes, crushed because of our sins; the disciplining that makes us whole fell on Him, and by His bruises we are healed. 6 We all, like sheep, went astray; we turned, each one, to his own way; yet ADONAI laid on Him the guilt of all of us, and in fellowship with Him 7 though mistreated, He was submissive – He did not open his mouth. Like a lamb led to be slaughtered, like a sheep silent before its shearers, He did not open his mouth. 8 After forcible arrest and sentencing, He was taken away; and none of His generation protested His being cut off from the land of the living for the crimes of my people, who deserved the punishment, themselves. 9 He was given a grave among the wicked; in His death He was with a rich man. Although He had done no violence and had said nothing deceptive, 10 yet it pleased ADONAI to crush Him with illness, to see if He would present himself as a guilt offering. If He does,
He will see His offspring; and He will prolong His days; and at His hand ADONAI’s desire will be accomplished. 11 After this ordeal, He will see satisfaction. “By His knowing [pain and sacrifice], my righteous servant makes many righteous; it is for their sins that He suffers. 12 Therefore I will assign Him a share with the great, He will divide the spoil with the mighty, for having exposed Himself to death and being counted among the sinners, while actually bearing the sin of many and interceding for the offenders.”
4 Now if Yeshua were on earth, He wouldn’t be a cohen at all, since there already are cohanim offering the gifts required by the Torah. 5 But what they are serving is only a copy and shadow of the heavenly original; for when Moshe was about to erect the Tent, God warned him, “See to it that you make everything according to the pattern you were shown on the mountain.” 6 But now the work Yeshua has been given to do is far superior to theirs, just as the covenant he mediates is better. For this covenant has been given as Torah on the basis of better promises. 7 Indeed, if the first covenant had not given ground for faultfinding, there would have been no need for a second one. 8 For God does find fault with the people when he says, “‘See! The days are coming,’ says ADONAI, ‘when I will establish over the house of Isra’el and over the house of Y’hudah a new covenant. 9 “‘It will not be like the covenant which I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by their hand and led them forth out of the land of Egypt; because they, for their part, did not remain faithful to my covenant; so I, for my part, stopped concerning myself with them,’ says ADONAI. 10 “‘For this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Isra’el after those days,’ says ADONAI: ‘I will put my Torah in their minds and write it on their hearts; I will be their God, and they will be my people. Hebrews 8

To the mediator of a new covenant, Yeshua; and to the sprinkled blood that speaks better things than that of Hevel. Hebrews 12:24   

The God of shalom brought up from the dead, the great Shepherd of the sheep, our Lord Yeshua, by the blood of an eternal covenant. Hebrews 13:20
God is waiting for you to come to Him.  Today, make this personal New Blood Covenant with Him. He has prepared the way, now is the time for you to choose.
1.  Know you are a lost sinner and have a need for salvation
2.  Humbly repent of your sins, for which Yeshua has already died.  He has provided the way with His blood.
3.  Through your believing faith, ask Yeshua to save you and forgive you of your sins and become your personal Savior and Lord.
4.  Receive God’s Holy Spirit in your soul to comfort and direct your life.
5.  You are now a child of the King, Yeshua, with the Kingdom of Heaven as your eternal home.
24 By God’s grace, without earning it, all are granted the status of being considered righteous before Him, through the act redeeming us from our enslavement to sin that was accomplished by the Messiah Yeshua. 25 God put Yeshua forward as the kapparah for sin through his faithfulness in respect to His bloody sacrificial death. This vindicated God’s righteousness; because, in His forbearance, He had passed over [with neither punishment nor remission] the sins people had committed in the past. Romans 3
Several other scriptures relating to the blood of the Lamb are listed below.
18 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Yeshua the Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 1 Peter 1
Therefore, since we have now come to be considered righteous by means of His bloody sacrificial death, how much more will we be delivered through Him from the anger of God’s judgment! Romans 5:9
19 So, brothers, we have confidence to use the way into the Holiest Place opened by the blood of Yeshua. 20 He inaugurated it for us as a new and living way through the parokhet, by means of His flesh.
29 Think how much worse will be the punishment deserved by someone who has trampled underfoot the Son of God; who has treated as something common the blood of the Covenant which made him holy; and who has insulted the Spirit, giver of God’s grace!   Hebrews 10
In union with Yeshua, through the shedding of His blood, we are set free – our sins are forgiven; this accords with the wealth of the grace. Ephesians 1:7
And from Yeshua the Messiah, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead and the ruler of the earth’s kings. To Him, the one who loves us, who has freed us from our sins at the cost of His blood. Revelation 1:5
And they sang a new song, “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals; because You were slaughtered; at the cost of blood You ransomed for God persons from every tribe, language, people and nation. Revelation 5:9
“Sir,” I answered, “you know.” Then he told me, “These are the people who have come out of the Great Tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white with the blood of the Lamb. Rev 7:14
11 But when Christ came as High Priest of the good things that are now already here, He went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that is to say, is not a part of this creation. 12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but He entered the Most Holy Place once for all by His own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. 13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. 14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! 15 For this reason Christ is the mediator of a New Covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the First Covenant. Hebrews 9
