Something Greater Than the Passover

John wrote, “Now the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was near” (John 6:4). As many of the Jews traveled to Jerusalem for this great feast of the Jews, they went to see Jesus along the way. They would eat a lamb in Jerusalem, but did they know that Jesus was the Lamb of God, the Great Passover Lamb that God would give to the world to deliver us from the bondage of sin?
Later in the chapter Jesus would speak of the need for us to eat his flesh. Even as the Jews had to eat the Passover Lamb, so we have to ingest Him as our Final Passover.
Have you taken Him into your life?
