Bert Sandler to demonstrate Passover meal, traditions at Crosspoint Community Church
What do the Jewish Passover and Jesus Last Supper have in common?
To answer that question, Bert Sandler of Light of Messiah Ministries in Atlanta will present Jesus in the Passover at Crosspoint Community Church in Peachtree City Sunday, Feb. 15, at 11 a.m. The service is intended to bring to life the Jewish roots of faith in Jesus as well as the celebration of communion, which goes back to the celebration of the Last Supper the night before the crucifixion.
Sandler will set up a Passover table with all the traditional elements involved in the Passover meal and will demonstrate how Jewish people celebrate the Passover today.
Believing in Jesus is a very Jewish thing, a Light of Messiah Ministries spokesperson said. In fact, it is the most Jewish thing that anyone can do. Jesus is the Jewish Messiah. To see the Jesus in the Passover celebration is only natural. The Last Supper was a Passover meal and the celebration points not only to the deliverance of our people from slavery and bondage to Pharaoh in Egypt, but also to the redemption that Jesus came to bring to all people.
The church is at 300 Tivoli Gardens. For more information, call Greg at 678-472-0887.
