Pesach [Passover] is a beautiful and wonderful time of year. The moed teaches us about freedom from bondage, salvation, redemption, and G-d's great love for His people. It is sometimes referred to as "the time of our joy".
As we examine what Scripture says about this special day, we find some specific commandments regarding the original event in Egypt and find other commandments regarding the annual remembrance of the event.
In addition to the commanded and traditional elements of Passover we should never forget Who Pesach was given to picture: Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel. We should always remember that "Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed." (1 Corinthians 5:7).
