Messiah Seen in Two Passovers

By Maria Merola אריאל
© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance, March 2012

Three Elements That Complete a Covenant: Spirit (Fire), Water, Blood

1st Yahuwchanon (John) 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

YaHuWaH’s 1st Passover
The 14th of Abib
(Nisan) through the 18th of Abib (Nisan)
Messiah’s Renewed Passover
The 14th of Abib
(Nisan) through the 18th of Abib (Nisan)
1.) Yisra’el ate the Passover Lamb with unleavened bread in Egypt the night before the Exodus. This was the beginning of the 14th of Abib after the sun went down on the 13th of Abib, it then became the 14th of Abib (Exodus 12:3-23). This supper was to redeem Yisra’el, as the “first-born son” (Exodus 4:22-23, 13:15).
1.) Messiah ate the Passover Lamb with his disciples with unleavened bread. It was the 3rd night of the week (Tuesday) at the beginning of the 14th of Abib after sundown in 30/31 C.E. (Mark 14:12-18, Matthew 26:17-23, Luke 22:9-15). This supper was to redeem the lost sheep of Yisrael, and to betroth her as his bride.

2.) YHWH commanded Yisra’el to place shoes on their “feet.” Yisra’el was commanded to have shoes on their “feet” to be ready to leave (Exodus 12:11). In Joshua 1:3, they were given a promise that wherever their “foot shall tread” they would be given as an inheritance. 
2.) Messiah washed the “feet” of his disciples. That night after the Passover Supper, he washed the “feet” of his disciples (John 13:12). Feet represent those who “bring good news” (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15, Ephesians 6:15). In Luke 15:22 the prodigal son at his return was given “shoes on his feet” as an inheritance.
3.) The blood of the Lamb was placed on the two side posts of the door symbolic of the Two Houses of Yisra’el (Isaiah 8:14). They were commanded to strike the blood of the lamb on two side posts & the upper door post (Exodus 12:7). The upper post represents Messiah who is the “head” of the body.  

YHWH established Two Houses of Yisra’el: The firstborn sons of Yisra’el (symbolized by Judah). The Egyptians who “sojourned” among them were grafted into Yisra’el, and they are symbolic of Ephrayim who was born in Egypt. The Passover was a betrothal (engagement) between Yisra’el and YHWH. The blood of the lamb sealed his covenant with them. This was still the 14th of Abib.

3.) The blood of the Lamb was placed on the Two Houses of Yisra’el as Yahuwshuwa Mashiyach’s blood covenant was symbolized by the wine when he declared “this is the blood of the new testament shed for many for the remission of sins.” (Matthew 26:28). The night before he was sacrificed on the tree, he prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane and he “sweat drops of blood” (Luke 22:44).

Messiah came to restore the Two Houses of Yisra’el and this Passover was his betrothal (engagement) to his bride. This was still the 14th of Abib. 
4.) YHWH said he would “smite all of the firstborn of the Egyptians” (Exodus 12:12). The firstborn sons of the Egyptians (symbolic of sin) would be smitten for the firstborn sons of Yisra’el. This was still on the 14th of Abib. Mosheh & Aharown (Moses & Aaron) did not go to Pharaoh to negotiate their departure until the following morning as they were commanded in Exodus 12:22: “none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.” 

4.) YHWH said he would “smite” the shepherd. Messiah repeated the prophecy of Zechariah 13:7 “I will smite the shepherd and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad” (Matthew 26:31). Yahuwshuwa is the shepherd who would be smitten for sinners to redeem the firstborn sons of Yisra’el. This was still on the 14th of Abib. Messiah and his disciples did not leave the House (Jerusalem) until the next morning when they followed him to the place of execution which was outside of the city. Exodus 12:22 says: “none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.”
5.) Judgment from YHWH came over Egypt and smote all the “firstborn” in the land. This parallels to the night that Yahuwdah (Judas) realized that he had betrayed innocent blood and he hung himself.  

Exodus 12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where you are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.  

Exodus 12:29  And it came to pass, that at midnight YHWH smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. 

The Egyptians also “hung themselves” (metaphorically) when they chased after the Yisra’elites and they were then drowned in the Red Sea. In the same way that Judas died in the “field of blood,” the Egyptians were buried in the “Red Sea” (symbolic of blood).
5.) Judgment from YHWH came to the House of Judah typified in the disciple who betrayed Messiah   named Yahuwdah (Judas). He represents the older son (the firstborn) in the story of the prodigal. The firstborn of the Two Houses of Yisra’el was being judged that night because as a nation they killed their Messiah and the person named after this tribe (Yahuwdah or Judas) was being used to illustrate this judgment that was going to come to them 40 years later in the Roman Siege. But Messiah also took “the cup of wrath” (the 2nd cup) for them as a nation to those from the House of Judah who would repent and later on accept his sacrifice. On the night after he betrayed Messiah, Judas declared: “I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood” (Matthew 27:4). Judas hung himself in what is called “the field of blood” (Matthew 27:8).
6.) Pharaoh released on Passover the   firstborn sons” of YHWH (Yisra’el) out of Egypt that night because YHWH “smote” Egypt’s firstborn in exchange for his firstborn son (Yisra’el).   

Exodus 12:30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.  

Exodus 12:31 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both you and the children of Yisra’el; and go, serve YHWH, as you have said. 

This was still the 14th of Abib, but they did not actually leave Egypt until the 15th of Abib as the Egyptians were busy burying their firstborn (Numbers 33:3-4). 

6.) Pontius Pilate released on Passover, Barabbas who represents “the firstborn sons” of Yisra’el. Barabbas is Bar Abba” in Aramaic which means “Son of the Father.”

YHWH “smote” the shepherd (Messiah) who became the scapegoat for the “firstborn” sons of Yisra’el. Pontius Pilate released Barabbas in the same way that Pharaoh released Yisra’el that same night on the 14th of Abib.   

Matthew 27:17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will you that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Yahuwshuwa which is called Mashiyach (Messiah)? 

Messiah represented “the firstborn” sons of Egypt (the scapegoat) who died in place of the “firstborn sons” of Yisra’el. The innocent children of the firstborn of Egypt had to die in order to release the first-born of Yisra’el.

Messiah was now taking the place for guilty sinners. The word scapegoat” means “the innocent party who takes the place of the guilty party.” Barabbas was being released to symbolize that all of Yisra’el was being released from their debt of sin and Messiah was taking their place! Messiah died on the 14th of Abib and was buried just before the sun went down on the 15th of Abib. 

7.) Pharaoh finally gave the people of Yisra’el what they wanted when they cried “Let us go!” and so he sent for Moses & Aaron to take the people out of Egypt.  

Exodus 12:32 Also take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also.  

Pharaoh recognized that the blood of the innocent lambs had protected Yisra’el that night but Yah took the firstborn sons of Egypt.  

Pharaoh was about to release the children of Yisra’el from Egypt recognizing that the blood of the innocent Egyptian children as well as the blood of the lambs was shed in order to free the Yisra’elites. This was still the 14th of Abib, but they did not leave until the 15th of Abib. 

7.) Pilate finally gave the people of Yisra’el what they wanted when they cried “Let Barabbas go! And so he gave them Barabbas. The people of Judah cried out “Crucify him! Let his blood be upon us!” Pilate washed his hands of “innocent blood” as he recognized that Messiah was the innocent scapegoat for the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) for they were shouting “let his blood be upon us.”   

Matthew 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see you to it.  

Matthew 27: 25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.  

Matthew 27: 26 Then released he Bar Abba (Barabbas) unto them: and when he had scourged Yahuwshuwa he delivered him to be crucified.  

Pilate was about to release the guilty party (Barabbas) who was symbolic of the nation of the House of Yisra’el, and he was about to execute the Messiah in his place. This was still the 14th of Abib.  

8.) YHWH destroyed the Egyptians in the Red Sea (symbolic of sin and bondage). Pharaoh and his Egyptian armies were destroyed in the Red Sea (Exodus 15:4). This happened on the 18th of Abib (3 days after) Yisra’el ate the Passover Lamb with Unleavened Bread. Yisra’el was led by a pillar of fire by night and a cloud by day, symbolic of the Holy Spirit (Exodus 13:21-22; 14:19 & 24, Numbers 33:3-8).  

When they came to the Red Sea, this represented immersion (water baptism). Yisra’el “crossed over” from death to life, from bondage to freedom. The blood of the Egyptians paid for their freedom when they drowned in the water!  

There were three elements present at this event: Spirit, Water & Blood! (1st John 5:8). 

8.) YHWH destroyed sin through the sacrifice of Messiah on the tree. This was the very next day after Yahuwshuwa ate the Passover Lamb, with Unleavened Bread with his disciples, but it was still the 14th of Abib (Passover).

Messiah purchased for his elect “life instead of death, freedom instead of bondage to sin.” Messiah died, and then he gave up his “spirit.” Then the Roman Solider put a spear into his side and out came blood and water (John 19:34).  

The blood of Messiah paid for our freedom. When we are immersed in water, we are being baptized into his death (Romans 6:4).  

There were three elements present at this event: Spirit, Water, &Blood! (1st John 5:8). 

9.) The Red Sea was parted at the precise moment that Moses lifted up his rod (shepherd’s staff). In Exodus 14:21-22, YHWH parted the Red Sea so that Yisra’el could cross over from death to life, from slavery to freedom. The Hebrew for “red” is “cuwph” and it literally means to terminate, to consume, to fulfill, to bring to an end!  

YHWH sanctified his bride Yisra’el and put an end to the Egyptians (a symbol of bondage to sin and idolatry). This took place on the 18th of Abib which was 3 days after they left Egypt (Numbers 33:3-8). This correlates to Messiah being 3 days & 3 nights in the heart of the earth (Matthew 12:40). 

9.) The Temple Curtain was parted (torn) at the precise moment that YHWH smote the shepherd and Messiah died (Isaiah 26:31). The temple veil that separated mankind from the Holy of Holies in the Temple was torn in half! (Matthew 27:51, Mark 15:35, Luke 23:45). This granted the royal priesthood after the order of Melchizedek access to the Father in Heaven so that we can come “boldly before the throne of grace” (Hebrews 4:6). Messiah brought an end to sin.   

Yahuwshuwa has immersed his bride and sanctified her by the washing of water by the word” (Ephesians 5:26). This was still on the 14th of Abib. 

10.) Sin was punished in the “Sea of Reeds” (Red Sea), as the Egyptians were symbolic of sin and bondage. This correlates to the way that our Messiah was also beaten with a “Reed” (Matthew 27:29-30).    

The Red Sea is symbolic of the sacrifice of Messiah. It contains two of the elements of covenant (blood and water). The word for “Red” in Hebrew literally means “Reeds” or  “cuwph” and it means: to terminate, to consume, to fulfill, to bring to an end! Messiah “brought to an end” to the “law of divorce” which separated Yisra’el from the marriage covenant. Red is the color of blood and this is symbolic of the “Red” Sea. The word “Red Sea” in Hebrew is literally “Sea of Reeds” or Yam Cuwph. 

Jonah was in the belly of a whale for “three days and three nights” in the “Sea” before he was taken out of the whale and delivered. Yisra’el journeyed through the “Sea” after three days, and they were “taken out” of Egypt and delivered.
10.) Sin was punished with “Reeds” as our Messiah’s body became “sin” and he was beaten with a “Reed” (Matthew 27:29-30).   

The Red Sea is symbolic of the sacrifice of Messiah. It contains two of the elements of covenant (blood and water). The word for “Red” in Hebrew is literally“Reeds” or “cuwph” and it means: to terminate, to consume, to fulfill, to bring to an end!

Messiah “brought to an end” the “law of divorce” which separated Yisra’el from the marriage covenant. Red is the color of blood and this is symbolic of the “Red” Sea. The word “Red Sea” in Hebrew is literally “Sea of Reeds” or Yam Cuwph. 

The “sign” of Jonah to validate that Yahuwshuwa was the Messiah, is that he would be “three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Matthew 12:40).

11.) Yisra’el Departed from Egypt. Their destination was the Promised Land. But before that, they descended into the Red Sea. The “Spirit” led them in the form of a “cloud by day” and a “pillar of fire by night” (Exodus 13:21, Numbers 33:3). This was the 15th of Abib when Yisra’el finally left Egypt. This is called “a night to be much observed” (Exodus 12:42). 

11.) Messiah Departed from this world (he died). His destination was the Heavenly Throne where he would wave the souls of the redeemed as his “firstfruits” offering.  But before that, he first descended into the lowest parts of the earth to redeem those in Abraham’s Bosom (Luke 16, Ephesians 4). Just before he died, he committed his “Spirit” into the Father’s hands (Luke 23:46). This was at 3:00 p.m. on the 14th of Abib, just 3 hours before the 15th of Abib when the sun would go down and he would be buried. This is called “a night to be much observed” (Exodus 12:42). Our Messiah was buried on the same anniversary night of when Yisra’el departed from Egypt and the Egyptians also buried their dead. 

12.) The Egyptians buried in the “Red Sea.” The Hebrew word for “Red” is cuwph which means “to consume” just like the Red Heifer had to be consumed. The Egyptians were buried at sea on the 18th of Abib (three days after they left Egypt) according to Numbers 33:3-8. 

12.) Messiah buried as the “Red Heifer” sacrifice in a brand new tomb that had never been used (John 19:38-41). The Red Heifer had to be completely consumed. Numbers 19:9 says that the ashes of the Red Heifer must be placed in a clean place. His burial took place as the sun was going down on the 14th of Abib just before the 15th of Abib.  

13.) The Egyptians buried their dead on the 15th of Abib (Numbers 33:4). Yisra’el traveled a “three day’s journey” to the Red Sea and there Pharaoh & the Egyptian soldiers were also buried at the Red Sea on the 18thof Abib called “firstfruits.” This represented resurrection for Yisra’el because they crossed over” from death to life, from bondage to freedom. YHWH won the “victory” for Yisra’el over the Egyptians as “death was swallowed up in victory.” Miryam danced with the Yisra’elite women as they sang “YHWH has triumphed gloriously...” (Exodus 15:21). 

13.) Messiah was buried “three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Matthew 12:40). He was buried just before the 15th of Abib and he resurrected on the 18th of Abib which was when the priest in the temple waved the “firstfruits” of the barley sheaf. In 2nd Temple period, the priests cut the first sheaf at the end of the weekly Sabbath at sundown (what we call Saturday). It is called “Habdalah” in Hebrew which means “separation, or exiting the Sabbath.” His resurrection meant that “Death was swallowed up in victory” (1st Corinthians 15:54). 

14.) Mosheh (Moses) communed with YHWH in the mountain for “forty days and forty nights” and he received the commandments in stone as the written marriage agreement between YHWH & Yisra’el (called a ketuwbah) Exodus 24:18.

14.) Yahuwshuwa communed with his disciples for “forty days” after his resurrection and he taught them the Towrah of Mosheh. He was teaching them that the Towrah (Mosaic Law) was now going to be part of the “Renewed” Marriage Covenant written in their hearts on the day of Shabuwoth (Pentecost) Acts 1:3, Jeremiah 31:33, Hebrews 8:10, 10:16.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing. God bless you.

  2. God somehow led me to this page. I have just finished reading the 1st 4 books of the bible and I am fascinated with the way everything fits that you have shown here Maria because it shows a depth and breadth that is stupendous in concept and marvelous in wisdom and beauty and design far beyond any human intricacy or contemplation.

  3. PS: That is the most realistic painting of the Last Supper I've seen btw.

  4. Question, if the lamb was the most important artical of the Passover meal, why did Jesus not mention it at the Passover? Was it not because he was the lamb? Looking for an answer, I love the insight that GOD has given you. May He bless you with all Spiritual blessings.

  5. Does the new testament replace the old testament covenant? The new testament Greek, doesn't call it a covenant, it calls it new testament. Which is a one way agreement, and not a conditional agreement. Thank you.
