What is a Passover Seder?
God gave His people Israel various annual festivals and commanded them to keep them. These appointed times invited His people to celebrate His goodness and provision, to remember His marvelous works, and to rest from their labor for a time. The festival days delighted the senses: sight, touch, taste, hearing. Children especially were encouraged to participate in the feasts to come to know their God better.
The Spring Passover meal memorialized the redemption that the Lord accomplished for His chosen people Israel in the Exodus from Egypt. Various components of that appointed festival anticipated the fuller redemption that both Jew and Gentile would have in Jesus, the Messiah.
The night in which He was betrayed, our Lord Jesus shared the Passover meal with His disciples. We remember and proclaim His death on our behalf when we share the Lord's Table.
Christians are not subject to the terms of the Law of Moses as the nation of Israel was. So, we do not celebrate the Passover as a way to keep the Law, but we can celebrate the greater rescue that Christ purchased for us through His own death.
"Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day--things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ" --Colossians 2:16-17
Today, a Passover Seder is the order of events in the Passover meal. There are several cups of grape juice (or wine) to drink, parsley to dip into salt water, bitter herbs to eat, and lots of matzah (unleavened bread) to eat. All throughout is the remembrance of God's deliverance of His people from Egypt, and the substance of Jesus Christ through it all.
