It might appear that we are eating dinner in p.j.s when in fact we are visiting Jerusalem, with our feet shod and staff in hand.

The Thursday (April 21) before Easter you may consider having a passover feast with your family, patterning it after the Passover Feast held by the Jews and the Last Supper of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Your menu could include:
  • Lamb (this can be quite expensive and although we've used this in the past, sometimes we substitute with a beef roast)
  • Unleavened bread (pita bread)
  • Bitter herbs (celery is considered a bitter herb, cool huh!)
Passover this year is held April 18-26, with it beginning for the Jews at sundown on April 18.  There are many scriptures that you can read to help you prepare for the passover.   Here are a couple to get you started.
  Exodus 12:21-28
Mark 14:12-25

I especially like reading the account in Exodus and having one of my younger children asking the question.
"26And it shall come to pass, when your achildren shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?
 27That ye shall say, It is the asacrifice of the Lord’s bpassover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and cdelivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped." Exodus 12:26-27.
