The Passover of the Jews

This is not an incidental reference in the Bible, “And the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went from the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves” (John 11:55).
The Jews did that every year. However, in the Gospel of John, mentioning a Passover shows the clock ticking towards the sacrifice of the true Lamb of God. John 11 records the Passover that fast approached when Jesus would die. John 12 narrows the time down more to six days before the Passover. Jesus knew what would happen and why it would happen, yet, He marched on.
Praise God for the bravery of Jesus the Christ!
