The one who became Jesus Christ proclaimed the first month of the year; and proclaimed that the Passover, Feast of Unleavened bread and the Wave Sheaf lifting must take place in that month. As we shall later see, the barley harvest must be ripe for cutting and grinding into flour for the wave offering in order to declare the first month as sanctified. A new updated article will be posted on Wave Offering Sunday with new information on beginning the first month.
12:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying, 12:2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
On the tenth day of the month they are to take a lamb to live with each the families of physical Israel in Egypt; then it is to be sacrificed after sunset ending the 13th day of the first month. The number of people needed to completely consume a whole lamb in its first year is about 20.
The Passover lambs were lambs which had been born in early spring, as those born a year earlier would by hitting the too old by weeks age.
This is a second rule to dating the first month: There must be lambs for the Passover sacrifice; ewe’s must have lambed before the first month is declared.
12:3 Speak ye 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 for an house: 12:4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour 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.
The Passover sacrifice must be a lamb of sheep flocks, or a kid of the goats herds. Please remember that the Passover can be a kid of the goats herds in your further studies, as in some places “herds” are mentioned and this has confused some people.
The lamb pictures the sacrifice of Christ being applied to the called out of Egypt and the spring or early harvest; and the goat kid pictures the sacrifice of Christ as being applied in the autumn to the main harvest, think of the Day of Atonement here.
However the sacrifice of Christ was done ONLY ONCE.! The Lamb of God was pictured by the Passover sacrifice, but Christ being the very Creator was of much more value than a physical lamb. (Read Mark 10:6)
12:5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year [in its first year]: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: 12:6 And ye shall keep it up until [up the beginning of, ie the end of the 13th day] the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
The blood of the sacrifice must be on the top and the two sides of the door of their homes. This pictures the atoning blood of the sacrifice of Christ covering the door of our hearts and minds.
The blood on the door posts in Egypt was a sign that the people were God’s people and that the destroyer should pass over them. In the same way the application of the sacrifice of Christ to the sincerely repentant marks out the people of God.
While not mentioned here sacrifices were accompanied by a drink Offering of Wine.
Physical Israel was to eat the lamb with unleavened bread. The lamb picturing the total and complete innocence; and his complete meekness and submission to the Father; of Messiah the Lamb of God; and the unleavened bread picturing absolute purity from leaven [sin] and the body of Christ which was to be broken for humanity. The bitter herbs represent the bitter sorrows and death that the Lamb of God must endure, an dour partaking of a part of the bitterness in our converted lives of overcoming as he overcame.
This whole meal was an allegory that we must eat [internalize] the whole word of God, which was inspired by Christ and is the Logos. If we are lax or reject any point such as zeal for the sanctity of the Sabbath; we are apostate from a part of Christ.
12:7 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.12:8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
The Passover lamb or kid must be roasted whole; representing the wholeness of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ.
12:9 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. 12:10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.
The meal is to be eaten in haste in Egypt, thus representing them leaving Egypt in hast after the deaths in Egypt on the Passover.
This is a picture that; once we sincerely repent and have the sacrifice of Christ applied to us; we must make haste to diligently study the scriptures and remove sin; we must be in passionate zeal to internalize the Word of God, to learn and to keep the whole word of God; to become perfect as our Father is perfect!
Anyone who is not passionately zealous to internalize the nature of God by faithfully rooting out all error contrary to the whole word of God, is in grave danger of severe correction.
12:11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’s passover.
Then the one who became Jesus Christ tells them that HE will go through the land and kill all the first born of Egypt. (It says I)
12:12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. End
The Schottenstein Edition of the Interlinear Chumash on Ex.12:12 “God himself will carry out the plague. I shall pass through and I shall strike… From this verse, which is familiar from the Pesach Haggadah , the Sages derive that God (Yehovah himself) personally carried out the Plague of the firstborn, and did not dispatch an angel or emissary to do so. From the foundation of Israel as a nation, Gods’ relationship to it was direct and personal without an Intermediary. When it was time to seal His covenant with His people by freeing them from the land of their enslavement, God did not delegate the task to any other(Maharal).”
It’s interesting that I have said this in earlier post, in my own words, before I ever read this Chumash! If you read the old testament from cover to cover it is surely the story of a Father and a rearing of a difficult son as David states so many times in the Psalms 83:18 Only one most High! Alone
