Messengers Messianic Jewish Fellowship of New Jersey
Each year at Spring, our Jewish
people assemble to celebrate the Passover as commanded by God in the
Torah (Jewish Bible). We who are Jewish believers in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah
have the privilege of knowing the answer to many of the mysteries
in the Passover Seder. As Jews, we join our people in celebrating our
release from physical bondage in Egypt. As Jewish believers in Messiah
Jesus, we celebrate release from bondage to sin and death through the
atonement made by Messiah. Gentile Christians know the Passover Seder as
the Last Supper. For both Jews and Christians, it is one of the most
important holidays that God has given us. Whoever you are, we welcome
you to come and celebrate the Passover with us as we focus on Jesus,
Jewish Messiah, " . . . the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the

"MESSIAH IN THE PASSOVER" PRESENTATION. Demonstration / Sermon Format
This can be done in a
sanctuary with fixed seating or in any other room. It is suitable for a
Sunday morning service or any other occasion. Mottel will bring the
traditional utensils & unleavened bread used in the Jewish Passover
Seder and will demonstrate how these are used in Jewish homes today. The
origin of Passover from the book of Exodus will be shared. As Jews,
Jesus and His disciples celebrated the Passover, with the "Last Supper "
being the best known example. This presentation will demonstrate that
the Passover service contains rituals which clearly point to Jesus as
Messiah and a strong evangelistic emphasis is central to this. The
minimum time needed is 40 minutes.
Full Messianic Seder with ritual Passover food items but without full
meal. This version is most suited for an evening service.
Participants sit at tables of 6 to 12 persons. Each place setting
contains the ritual symbolic Passover food items that were used at the
'Last Supper' by Jesus and His disciples. These same symbolic items are
still used in Jewish homes today. Christians are increasingly
celebrating Passover as it is recognized that it pictures Jesus as the
greater Passover Lamb. From a head table, Mottel will lead the
participants through a shortened version of the Passover Seder, pausing
to point out those rituals which have direct fulfillment in Messiah
Jesus. This format requires a minimum of 90 minutes. A detailed set of
instructions for this will be provided. All items can be purchased or
made from ingredients available in any large supermarket. Mottel will
supply a traditional cloth “Matzah Tash” unleavened bread holder for
each table, and will distribute an abridged Passover Hagadah (Liturgy
folder) that each participant can take home. Contact us for details.
