Passover (also known as Pesach) is upon us once again, and this year I thought to keep it simple. So with that, here are a bunch of Passover quotes from the Bible, and of course some NOT from the Bible too.
Passover Quotes from the Bible
“So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance.” – Exodus 12:14 NKJV, Passover Quotes
“I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt. Afterward he will let you go from here. When he lets you go, he will surely drive you out of here altogether.” - Exodus 11:1 NKJV, Passover Quotes

“Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats.” – Exodus 12:5 NKJV, Passover Quotes
“Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Pick out and take lambs for yourselves according to your families, and kill the Passover lamb. And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. And none of you shall go out of the door of his house until morning.” – Exodus 12:21-22 NKJV, Passover Quotes
“Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.” – Exodus 12:8 NKJV, Passover Quotes
“Then came the Day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover must be killed. And He sent Peter and John, saying, ‘Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat’.” – Luke 22:7-8 NKJV, Passover Quotes
“But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you.” – 1 Peter 1:19-20 NKJV, Passover Quotes
“Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” – 1 Corinthians 5:8 NKJV, Passover Quotes
Passover Quotes NOT from the Bible
“Passover affirms the great truth that liberty is the inalienable right of every human being.” – Morris Joseph, Passover Quotes
“Historically the profoundest meaning of Passover is something which sets Judaism apart from other religions. It marks the birth of a nation. Out of a mass of slaves, Moses fashioned a nation and gave them a faith.” – Philip S. Bernstein, Passover Quotes
“Passover is our tradition, and I like to keep up with that. Our ancestors couldn’t eat bread, and it’s nice for us to celebrate that every year by going through their struggles.” – Marsha Cohen, Passover Quotes
“Passover has a message for the conscience and the heart of all mankind. For what does it commemorate? It commemorates the deliverance of a people from degrading slavery, from most foul and cruel tyranny. And so, it is Israel’s – nay, God’s protest against unrighteousness, whether individual or national.” – Morris Joseph, Passover Quotes
“Passover and Easter are the only Jewish and Christian holidays that move in sync, like the ice skating pairs we saw during the winter Olympics.” – Marvin Olasky, Passover Quotes
“Easter is as important to Christians as Passover is to the Jews.” – Glenn Duffy, Passover Quotes
May God bless those who observe this Passover holiday.

Sundown today marks the beginning of Passover, and Bible or Not extends our blessings to the House of Israel and to all those observing these holy days. Each year Christians observe Palm Sunday which is closely followed by Passover, and it’s no coincidence. In the Book of Exodus we read:
“Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats.” – Exodus 12:5 NKJV
The 12th chapter of Exodus outlines the first observance of Passover, exactly as it was commanded by God and delivered through Moses. This is one of the most striking types and shadows of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ. So, as would be expected, Jesus made his return and entry into Jerusalem just prior to Passover, He being the ultimate Sacrificial Lamb that would deliver all those who would apply His blood to the door posts and lintels of their hearts.
“Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight. And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it.” - Exodus 12:6-7 NKJV
So whether Christian or Jew, this week before Easter is holy indeed as we observe the passing over of the death angel through the precious blood of the Lamb. You can read the entire 12th chapter of Exodus here.

Last night at sundown began the observance of the Passover Holy Days. Each year Passover falls on a different date and in 2010 it starts on Tuesday March 30th (sundown of Monday March 29th) and will continue for 7 days until Monday April 5th (sundown Sunday April 4th).
In Judaism Passover marks the remembrance of God’s deliverance of the Jews from slavery in Egypt. Christians recognize the Passover as symbolic of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as the Lamb of God who was slain to pay for the sins of the world.
