Feasts of the Lord, Part 2 - Unleavened Bread

Passage:Exodus 13:3-10

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Series: Feasts of the Lord

The Feast of Unleavened Bread was a week-long feast commanded by God and given to Israel while in Egypt. It was instituted to occur the day after Passover, and to mark Israel's liberation from slavery in Egypt. While a distinct observance from Passover, the two Feasts are undeniably and closely connected. In today's sermon we will learn about how this feast was to be celebrated, mainly by the removal of leaven (yeast) from bread and the home, what its meaning and significance held, and how it points uniquely to an aspect of Jesus' saving work and gives context for the call of the Christian to lead a holy life.
