The Passover in Exodus 12 is a remarkable picture of the death of Christ. Before we can fully appreciate it, however, we need to see how it is connected to the Lord’s Table. The Passover is the Old Testament memorial feast pointing forward to the death of Christ; the Lord’s Table is the memorial feast of the New Testament. On the one hand it points us back to the death of Christ, and on the other, it points us forward to His return.
Eventually, both of these feasts will be fulfilled in the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in the next age.
