Jesus’ Last Supper was actually a Jewish Passover. Isaac Brickner of Jews for Jesus is planning to re-create the traditional Passover service at Harrodsburg Christian Church on Wednesday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m.
In this free event, Brickner plans to explain how the Passover foreshadowed Jesus’ death and resurrection in a presentation called “Christ in the Passover.”
Brickner traditional items used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance. He will also explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, as well as the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion celebration used today.
Jews for Jesus has presented “Christ in the Passover” at over 38,000 churches. It has been enthusiastically received by Christians who appreciate learning more about the Jewish backgrounds of their faith.
Moishe Rosen, founder of Jews for Jesus, has co-written the book, Christ in the Passover, with his wife, Ceil.
This seminal work includes a look at Passover in ancient times and how it is practiced today. It will be available after the presentation.
Brickner, a fifth-generation Jewish believer in Jesus, succeeded Rosen as executive director of Jews for Jesus in 1996.
Brickner has established branches in eleven countries, including the United States, Brazil, Israel, Russia, France and South Africa.
“We exist to make the Messiahship of Jesus an unavoidable issue to our Jewish people worldwide,” said Brickner. “There are still a few that haven’t heard of us.”
Isaac Brickner will be available to answer questions after the presentation. For more information, call 734-3224.
