2019 Maundy Thursday Seder Meal


This Maundy Thursday Murphy Presbyterian Church followed a Passover Seder. A Passover Seder is a meal that commemorates God’s Passover as found in Exodus 12. In Exodus, God redeems his people from slavery by passing over all of those who put the blood of a lamb on their doorposts. The night Jesus was betrayed, he told his disciples that he earnestly desired to eat this Passover with them (Luke 22:15). As they ate the Passover meal, Jesus reinterpreted the Passover in light of his coming sacrificial death on the cross.
As we participate in this meal, we’ll see how the first Passover prepares us for the greater Passover found in Jesus Christ; we’ll see how God’s redemption of Israel from the bondage of slavery in Egypt prepares us for the greater redemption from the bondage of sin. Our goal in having this Seder is to have a better understanding of God’s redemption as found in Jesus Christ.
