A typology

  • The Lamb represents Jesus Christ
  • Israel represents the chosen people of God
  • The Exodus represents the process of salvation
  • See Gen. 3:21, 4:4, 22:1-18;  Isaiah 53:7-8 and Acts 8:32-33; John 1:29, 36; Luke 22:7; 1 Cor. 5:7-8; 1 Pet. 1:19; Rev. 7:14, 12:11. 

The Nature of This Salvation

  • We are saved by God from His wrath,  (Rom. 5:9, 6:23; Prov. 11:4.)
  • By His grace, (Eph. 2:8; 2 Tim. 1:9; Rom. 3:24.)
  • Through our faith, as (John 3:14-18; Rom. 3:22-27; 1 Pet. 1:5. )
  • Evidenced by our works.  (James 2:14-26; Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Cor. 5:15.)

The Memorial Feast

  • The Lamb
  • Unleavened bread
  • Bitter herbs
  • Belt, sandals, staff
  • Jesus declares the bread as his body
  • 1 Cor. 11:24, Luke 22:19. 
  • Jesus declares the wine as his blood
  • 1 Cor. 11:25, Luke 22:20.
  • See also Hebrews 9:11-14.

Some applications:

  • Am I certain that the blood of Jesus Christ will protect me from the wrath to come?  What evidence do I have in my life?
  • How can I become better prepared to tell others about the coming judgment and their need for redemption in Jesus Christ?
  • What other Old Testament accounts might be considered part of the “Scarlet Thread” of scripture?

Some New Testament references to the Passover:  Matt. 26:2, 26:17-28, 27:15; Mark 14:1-2, 15:6; Luke 2:41-50, 22:7-20, 23:16-17; John 2:13, 2:23, 13:1-30, 18:28, 18:39; Acts 12:3; 1 Cor. 5:7-8, 11:17-34.
