1ST PASSOVER Exodus 12:1-11 And the LORD spoke unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, this month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb per house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of 1 year old: you shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: And you shall keep it up until the 14th day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. And you shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remains of it until the morning you shall burn with fire. And thus shall you eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD's passover.

LAST WORDS OF A HIGH PRIEST AFTER THE LAST LAMB WAS KILLED THE HIGH PRIEST WOULD SAY: “IT IS FINISHED”
FUTURE PASSOVER NEARLY 2000 YEARS AGO PASSOVER IN JERUSALEM A JEWISH MAN ON A DONKEY CAME TO TOWN JESUS/YESHUA
LAMB OF GOD JOHN 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! JOHN 1:36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!” 1 PETER 1:19 … but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. REVELATION 5:12 “ Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
CHRIST PARALLELS PASSOVER LAMB UMBLEMISHED LAMB PARALLEL EXODUS 12:5 Your lamb shall be without blemish… 1 PETER 1:19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. HYSSOP PARALLEL EXODUS 12:22 Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. Not one of you shall go out the door of his house until morning JOHN 19:29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth NO BONES BROKEN PARALLEL EXODUS 12:46 In one house it shall be eaten; you shall not carry any of the flesh outside the house, nor shall you break one of its bones. JOHN 19:36 For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, “Notoneof His bones shall be broken.”
LABELED ON THE CROSS John:19:20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
JESUS OF NAZERETHAND KING OF THE JEWS JOHN 19:20-22 Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, “I am the King of the Jews.”’” Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”
PILOT STOLE THE PHRASE Zeus of Pergamos and King and God

GOD’S LAMB WAS LABELED DO YOU THINK SOME OF THE HIGH PRIESTS WHERE SHOCKED TO SEE THIS! GOD WROTE HIS NAME: YHVH ON HIS LAMB “JESUS” LABELED FOR ALL THE SINS OF MANKIND
CHRIST BECAME A HIGH PRIEST Heb 9:11-12But Christ being come a high priest of good things to come…
WORDS OF A HIGH PRIEST John 19:30When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. EXODUS 12:12 after the last lamb was killed the High Priest would say “it is finished”

FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD HEBREW = HAG HAMATZAH 1ST MONTH 15TH – 21ST DAY (LASTED 7 DAYS) DAY AFTER PASSOVER HEBREW MONTH – NISAN MARCH/APRIL
HURRY OUT OF EGYPT Ex:12:39 And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victual. • They made Unleavened Bread because they were in such a hurry to get out of Egypt
EAT ONLY UNLEAVENED BREAD Ex:12:20Seven days shall you eat unleavened bread; even the first day you shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eats leavened bread from the 1st day until the 7th day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. And in the 1st day there shall be a holy convocation, and in the 7th day there shall be a holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you. `And you shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall you observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever. In the 1st month, on the 14th day of the month at even, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and 20th day of the month at evening. 7days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eats that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land. You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall you eat unleavened bread.
7 DAYS WITHOUT LEAVEN Exodus 13:6-77 days you shall eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD. Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.
SYMBOLISM OF THE LEAVEN LEAVEN = SIN THE BREAD HAD NO LEAVEN CHRIST HAD NO SIN WHAT DOES JESUS COMPARE HIMSELF TO?
