My husband loves the move The Ten Commandments so it's a type of Easter ritual to watch it after we come home from a good dinner & easter egg hunt with the in-laws. Of course, I never knew why they show it at Easter time - but hey - it's a good movie
This year I finally figured it out (duh..). Passover=Easter. The Ten Commandments is about the Exodus from Egypt and the first Passover. Passover foreshadowed Jesus' sacrifice:
Passover, lamb is sacrificed at twilight on Nissan 14 - Jesus died in late afternoon on Nissan 14
Isrealites saved by the blood of a lamb - Christians saved by the blood of the lamb
Well.......I may be slow but I am catching on. Isn't it funny how I never knew this stuff as a JW? You would think with all the studying we did we'd know more.......
