Christians take a different perspective on Passover Seder

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Passover Seder is the first of the major Jewish holidays mentioned in the Bible. It celebrates God freeing the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt, which was led by Moses.

At the Christian Church, the congregation continues this story according to their beliefs. The community is invited to participate in this version of Passover Seder at                    6:30 p.m. Thursday. The Christian Church is hosting a Passover Seder Dinner and Service.

The concept for the event, Mark Rayburn of the Christian Church said, is an extension of the Jewish heritage.

He explained they look back at the Israelites being free, as told in the Book of Exodus. However, the church takes a different turn than the Jews by recognizing Jesus as the savior of mankind, Rayburn said.

He explained the church shares in celebrating Passover “because it’s a celebration of our history.  

"For Christians who are unfamiliar with the story, here’s where we came from and here’s where we are now.

“It’s a celebration of our freedom from sin,” Rayburn said.
