Passover Seder Dinner

Messianic Haggadah

A Few Words of Introduction


Judaism is not monolithic, with a central authority whose decisions are binding on all Jews, all rabbis or all congregations. Often there are a variety of interpretations, explanations and practices regarding a particular matter.

Christianity puts great emphasis on creeds and detailed doctrinal statements and tends to regard a particular view or interpretation as either "correct" or "incorrect/false". Judaism--even Messianic Judaism--represents a much more holistic view. Often, several different interpretations or explanations are considered "acceptable" even if from the Greek-influenced Western/ Hellenistic/ modernist mindset they would be considered inconsistent.


Most Christians  have a grossly distorted view of the Jewish Passover.

Because Christians associate Passover with the Crucifixion, they think it is a very sad time. For this reason, some Christians "distance" themselves from Jewish friends and acquaintances at this time of the year, sort of like trying to avoid a person near the anniversary of his child's death so you won't accidentally add to his sorrow.

To Jews, however, Passover is a celebration -- the anniversary of the night God delivered them from slavery!


Christians should be aware that Passover has strong religious significance for Jews, like Resurrection Sunday (Easter) and Christmas for Christians.

A Passover Seder is a joyous occasion, including singing and dancing. Just as many Christians would be highly offended if someone were to get Protestant or Catholic materials and "act out" the Lord's Supper or a Mass, "just to see what it's like", many Jews are offended by Christians who--for all practical purposes--are "acting it out" instead of actually celebrating it.

If you hold a Messianic Seder, please realize that Passover is a religious ceremony ordained by God and do it with appropriate reverence!


Leviticus 23 says, "These are the feasts of the Lord" not "the feasts of the Jews" or "the feasts of the Hebrews" or "the feasts of the Israelites"!

Yes, it is long. A true Seder includes a full meal and takes about five hours.
