:) The blood was a sign which protected the Israelites from the destruction God was bringing to unbelievers. The blood was a symbol that the house and those in it were protected by God. We as believers have experienced a day of deliverance from spiritual death and slavery to sin. God has delivered us by the blood of Jesus and gives us a new life with HIm.

Q1. In what way did the lambs on the first Passover protect the families of God's people? (Exodus 12) What is the primary point of comparison between the first Passover lambs and what Christ did for us as our Passover Lamb? The lamb's Blood, at the first Passover, being placed on the door-posts caused the Angel of death to spare ("passover") them. Just as the Blood of these Lambs offered protection then; The Precious Blood of our Lord & Saviour, wash's away our sin's, & protects us today. "The life is in the Blood!" I believe this Blood, not seen in the natural, is seen in the spiritual realm. When the spiritual enemy's of our God, look upon us, they see the Blood of the "LAMB"!; And know, by this that we are protected. :) The Blood of our Lord & Saviour was spilled for all who would believe on Him, & the work done on the Cross. I would like to hear from anyone whom might have a "deeper" understanding of blood....I feel there is much more here, that we could grasp!

The blood of the lamb protected the Lord's people who were being oppressed in Egypt from being visited by the angel that was sent to kill all the firstborn in Egypt. In the same way, the blood of Christ that was shed on the cross as the Lamb of God protects us from experiencing spiritual death. Though our mortal bodies will one day die and return to the earth, we the believers and followers of the Lamb of God have been given the hope and promise that one day we will be taken up to the heavens to join our Lord. The blood of the Lamb of God has protected us from paying the ultimate price for our sins. And because of the protection that has been given to us, we have been assured of victory! Yay! :lol:

The blood of the lambs during the first passover protected the Israelites from the angel of death who passed over the homes of the Israelites which had blood of the lambs stained on the lintels of their doors. In the same way the last supper was to commemorate the blood of Jesus which was shed to atone for the sins of the whole world.

Those who had followed God's direction were 'passed over'. The blood on their door was a sign to themselves that God would spare them the punishment that others would suffer.

The blood of Christ on the cross is also a sign to us that we are to be spared the punishment of our sins.

The lambs on the first Passover protected the families of Gods people of the firstborn of both men and animals.The families spread the blood of the lamb on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they ate the lambs.The angel of death passes through Egypt slaying the firstborn of both men and animals,except the families that did as they were instructed by Moses were passed over and death did not enter their homes.

The comparison between the first Passover lambs and what Christ did for us as our Passover Lamb was Jesus was the Lamb who was slain for the sins of the world,"yours and mine". Jesus was the Passover Lamb,and we are covered by his blood,that was shed for all the world,so we may have everlasting life,and not die in sin."We have to except Jesus Christ as our Savior,believing what we are instructed to do.The blood of Jesus,"The Lamb of God' protests us as we apply Him to our life. :rolleyes:

The Passover Lamb saved the children of Israel from death in Egypt when they put the blood on the doors. At the last supper Jesus initiated a new covenant with us that ties in with the marriage customs of his day. He offered the cup of wine as his blood and said to drink. In his day a prospective groom would offer a glass of wine to his proposed bride if she accepted it, she was accepting him. In the same way, if we accept the sacrificial work of Jesus on the cross and the blood and bread (his body and truth) we are accepting him. When we do this we are then His. :D

Jesus was the spotless unblemished lamb similar to the one that had to be used for the Passover Lamb at the time of the Exodus. At that time the children of Israel were allowed to leave slavery in Egypt after 400 years of bondage. Blood from the lamb was a sign to the Angel of Death at that time when it was put onto the lintels of the children of Ilrael's doors. Blood was used at the time of the first covenant with Abraham when God had Abraham part the body of the animal and he walked in the blood and said when the covenant was broken He would pay the price. As Newbie said wine was used as a covenant between a boy and girl in the time of Jesus to seal a marriage covenant. It was the custom of the day. Jesus used parables to teach. The disciples knew He was the Son of God. They also certainly would have known about the first covenant and the Passover Lamb. Jesus had told them he was going to be killed, although they probably did not really understand. They would certainly have known of the marriage custom of offering the cup of wine. So Jesus used all this background in his teaching in his message at the Last Supper. When he held up the cup and said this is my blood and the bread and said this is my body he was offering His sacrifice to them to accept or deny. They were certainly startled as this had never happened before. We have the same choice today, to accept the sacrifice of the Perfect Lamb or to reject it. If we are wise we will accept it and spend eternity with our precious Lord. :)

#4 Q1. In what way did the lambs on the first Passover protect the families of God's people? (Exodus 12)

The blood of the lambs was painted on the lintel and doorposts of the people

The blood used from the lambs on the first Passover was placed on the door post and the lentel so the angel of death would passover the members of that household. This was to safely guard and spare all first born of the children of Israel. We too experience this safe protection from the blood Jesus shed for all who believe. We shall live. but our bodies will return to the dust from which they came according to scripture. It is so great at this special time of the year taking communion. It brings to my mind the Last Supper and all the suffering that was done on my behalf. We are truly blessed that through the blood of Jesus we can come boldy to the Father and he hears us as we pray. The wages of sin have been paid for through to blood of Jesus, not because we deserve it, but because He loves so much. We will not be perfect in this life, but Praise the Lord, we are accepted as heirs to the KING!

On the first Passover, the death of the unblemished male lambs and the application of their blood upon the door posts of the dwellings of the Hebrews literally gave life, protecting future generations, and denied demise as the Death Angel passed over.

Secondly, the primary point of comparison between the first Passover lambs and what Christ did for us as our Passover lamb is both death and , from an old hymn, "there to the cross was the blood applied." lmc

The lambs blood on the first passover protected God's people in that when the blood was on their door, the angel of death "passed over" and no harm came to their sons.

After the first passover lamb, a spotless lamb free of blemish, the Children of Israel were set free from slavery. The death of Jesus, the spotless lamb of God who shed his own blood for us, sets us free from the worst slavery of all, our own sins. As with the first passover lamb, their doors were covered with the lamb's blood, even now our sins are covered by the blood of Christ.....I am washed in the blood of the Lamb!

In what way did the lambs on the first Passover protect the families of God's people?

The lambs blood was used by the Israelites to paint the door frames of their homes, to protect the lives of the first born males..(both men and animals) So that God would "pass over" their homes and the plague of destrution would not touch them. They were also to eat the lambs meat in haste and leave nothing..eat it or burn it...

What is the primary point of comparison between the first Passover lambs and what Christ did for us as our Passover Lamb?

I think the primary point of comparison is the BLOOD..The lambs blood covered the doors to protect the Isrealites for the plague of death..and Christ Jesus' blood covers us to protect us from the plague of death...

Greetings All!

It is by their blood on the lentils and doorposts that the lambs protected Israel on the first passover. In order to obtain that blood, the lambs had to die.

I suppose it would be in that when we accept the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins, we are washed in His blood. In that way, the wrath of God will pass us over when it is time to destroy the world.

The blood of the first passover lambs smeared on the doors and doorposts marked out the households of those who God had chosen to be his people. When the angel of death came, all those under the shelter of that house were saved, simply because they had been chosen by God - not on merit - but on faith. In the same way, Christ is our passover lamb - sacrificed for us for the forgiveness of sins and sheltering us from death, not on merit but on faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

In what way did the lamb on the Passover protect the families of God's people?

The lamb that was slaughtered, they were to take some of the blood and out it on the sides and on tops of the door frames of the house. The blood would be a sign to the Lord that the house should be saved from judgement. The primary comparsion between the first Passover lamb and what Christ did for us, our passover lamb is the shedding of blood and the setting apart of those who partake of the sacrifice. The protection is in the blood. We as christian are protected under the blood of Jesus.

The familys were protected in the way of a substitute. The lambs were the substitute.

The primary point of comparison would be that Christ served as a substitute just as the lamb served as a substitute.

If you've gotten a bit behind, don't go backwards, but start with today.

I had gotten behind and am just now answering my first question, Pastor Wilson first sentence read as above, just wanted to share for this was encouraging :D

+ The families were protected because of the obedience they gave to God by doing exactly as he had told them. It is worth noting that all were to share, a model for us today.

+ The comparison was of the blood shed by the Passover Lamb, which was to be perfect, and the sacrifice our Lord and Savior, for us. We are protected if we accept Jesus as our Lord. We then are to share the gospel to others in the way the Jewish families were to share the lambs with others.

The Israelite families were to put the blood from the passover lamb on the sides and top of the doorframe of their homes. When the Angel of Death passed through during the night to slay all the firstborn, he would passover any house having the blood on it. The blood was a sign that any house that bore it was to be exempted from the judgement of the firstborn.

;) Isn't it wonderful that even though the Israelites went through the troubled times of their day (just as we also go through the troubled times of today)... God makes a way. An Angel was sent out... A Plague was released... and the Angel passed by those whose doors had been marked by FAITH. The blood covering the door post... symbolic of His precious blood which covers us today. So when the Plagues are released upon the earth Remember... for those covered by the blood of the Precious Lamb of God the Angel will pass over us also. God says He is a Shield to us... He surrounds us with His Hedge... could this be the Blood? They who were told Believed and Acted upon what was told to them. Believe in His Blood... for truly there is power in His Blood. Amen.

The first passover was to take a 1 year lamb. After sacrificing it they would place the blood on the door post and at the top of the door. This was a sign to the angle of death to passover. The Jews were told to do this annually to celebrate God's redeeming them in mercy from slavery of the Egyptions. Christ as the Passover lamb is a picture of Him redeeming us from the slavery of sin.

I am so glad that God love me and use His son to buy me back!!

In order for the atonement of sins, there had to to be some blood shed. The first sacrafice was of a pure blood shed. The lamb represented "The Lamb of God - which is Christ. The wine represented Christ's blood and the lamb the body.

There had to be "pure blood shed". Christ was the only one who could save us. Without the blood we would die.

Even now, we live because of the blood that flows through our bodies.

This is also a part of our Worship services when we have communion. We are to remember the sacrafices that Jesus made for us every day.

And with that, we celebrate Easter.

"THIS DO IN REMEMBERANCE OF ME"
