SGA Pic of Christ lesson 12

Lesson 12
Exodus 12:1-13

The Lord had sent plague after plague upon the Egyptians; but each time Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he would not allow the Israelites to leave Egypt. The Lord spoke to Moses (Exo. 11-1) and declared that He would bring one more plague upon Egypt; after that plague, Pharaoh would send them forth out of the land.

The Passover Lamb is a special type of Christ, perhaps the clearest and most complete of all the types and pictures; for in it the Lord God preached to the Jews THE WHOLE DOCTRINE OF THE GOSPEL–(l) in the choice of the sacrifice–John 1:29, (2) in the characteristics of the lamb–I Peter 2:22; (3) in the death of the lamb and the sprinkling of the blood–Heb. 9:11-14; (4) in the eating of the lamb and the faith that rested–John 6:53-54, and (5) in the grand results of it all–the people were delivered and God was glorified–Exo. 12: 26-27; Eph. 3:21.

One of the best ways to study the Passover as a picture and type of Christ is to look at the parallels between this Passover and "Christ, our Passover, Who is sacrificed for us" (I Cor. 5:7).
