The Meaning of Passover
There are seven festivals in the Bible that picture steps in God’s salvation plan. Since Jesus Christ is the focal point of that plan, He is also the focal point of each festival. Perhaps that is one reason why the New Testament church observed all seven of these God-given Biblical Festivals.

I’d like to read a scripture to begin this presentation. It’s in 1 Corinthians 10:11. Here Paul is talking to the Corinthians about the things written in what we call the Old Testament and what they called the Word of God. That was what they had back then. In verse 11, it says:
1 Cor. 10:11 – These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come.
Now that word there – examples – that isn’t exactly translated to get the full effect, actually. It actually means – and I’m going to read this out of Strong’s – This word is found only in 1 Corinthians 10:11 – as a warning by way of example typologically – that is, figuratively – as a prophetic type of typological interpretation of scripture. Wow! Let’s let that sink in a little bit. Did he just say that everything in the Old Testament has a typological meaning for the New Testament church? I believe he did! What are we talking about there? What we’re talking about is a lot of symbolism – things that happened in the Old Testament are symbolic of things to come – layer upon layer of meaning.
