Passover Seder Dinner

Messianic Haggadah

(About pronunciation)

READER: [31] "The time is coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. [32] It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them, " declares the LORD. [33] "This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time," declares the LORD. "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. [34] No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest," declares the LORD. "For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more." (Jeremiah 31:31-34)

READER: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come." (Revelation 4:8b)

READER: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory." (Isaiah 6:3)

READER: [12] Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. [13] We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away. [14] But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. [15] Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. [16] But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. [17] Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. [18] And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
(2 Corinthians 3:12-18)

LEADER: We have now finished our Passover Seder. I encourage each one of you to take the time during the remaining Passover holiday to read the story of Passover in Exodus as well as other scriptures quoted throughout this Haggadah. We are all called to live the Sh'ma -- to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and might, and to treat others with kindness.  Seek a relationship with God, not a "religion". There are many today that do not believe the Yeshua is the Son of God. To deny this, is to deny the Torah, the prophets and the writings. There is no mystery -- it's all there. All the prophecies pertaining to the first coming of the Messiah have already been fulfilled by Yeshua. If you were to go back and read the prophecies, you would clearly see that it would be impossible for anyone else to fulfill these prophecies. So we can look into and study the prophets and study Yeshua's ministry and see the true fulfillment of God's word. You may ask, "How can a Jewish person believe that Yeshua is the Son of God and still be Jewish?" Well, the answer is simple to find--you must have a personal relationship with God. He will reveal the truth to you and you will see that He is lifting the veil that has been placed over Jewish and Gentile hearts. All will see that the Jewish Messiah has come! And when Yeshua came, Jews were not called to give up their Jewishness. On the contrary, they were called to be more righteous than the Pharisees.  The Gentiles, too, are having the veil lifted from their eyes, for they have denied their Jewish heritage for so long that there remains division in the Church and in some cases a lack of understanding of the depth of the Scriptures.


(The Aaronic priestly blessing)

May the Lord bless you and protect you.
May the Lord deal kindly and graciously with you.
May the Lord bestow His favor upon you
   and grant you peace.
