Exodus 12


A tour of Exodus 12 with Ken Boa.

This crucial chapter institutes the Passover and outlines its meaning as a portrait of redemption through sacrificial blood. Ultimately, the Passover points beyond itself to the voluntary sacrifice of God’s own Son, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. The lamb had to be in its prime, without blemish, tested for a period of days, and sacrificed between 3:00 and 6:00 in the afternoon. The blood of the lamb had to be applied to the lintel and doorposts of each house so that the angel of death would spare the firstborn.  

In his grief at the loss of his own firstborn, Pharaoh finally relented and commanded the people of Israel to depart from Egypt.

Reading of Exodus 12


Lord, I thank You for this detailed prefiguring of the sacrificial death of Your Son. During this awesome night You redeemed Your people and set them free from their servitude so that they could be free to serve You in love and truth.
