What is the Passover?

The Passover is a major Jewish holiday that begins at sundown on April 8th this year. The Passover is also a special day for Christians.

Moses told the Israelites to put the blood of a lamb on their doorposts. This kept each firstborn son safe from the sickness that was outside their home. The Jews cooked the lamb meat and ate it. The next day they left Egypt to go to the promised land. The Passover reminds us of the return of the children of Israel to the promised land and of the great travail in Egypt which preceded it.
