This is Ron Moore with the Bible Minute.
Moses gave the Israelites specific instructions: Sacrifice a lamb, spread the blood of the lamb on your doorposts, and eat the lamb as your last meal before leaving Egypt. The angel of death, then, would pass over the houses of the Israelites who obeyed.
Centuries later, in John 1:29 we read this description of Jesus: "The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, 'Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!'"
Jesus is our Passover Lamb. And when we apply His death to our lives, we are freed from the slavery of sin and from death itself. Because of Jesus we will pass from death to eternal life.
