About the Seder:
The Seder meal commemorates the beginning of Passover week for Jews. The meal uses symbolic foods and a liturgy that is read in order to recount God’s saving act in the Exodus event. In the Seder, there is a longing for the Messiah who will redeem Israel. As Christians, we believe that Messiah is Jesus. The meal takes on the added symbolism of Christ for us, as we see our identity as grafted in with Israel. We remember Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, and long for his coming again to make all things right.
