Review

“The Footprints of Messiah in the Feasts of the Lord” is a study of the Feasts of the Lord and their fulfillment by Jesus the Messiah (Christ). First, she analyzes the difference between figurative and literal. Next, she goes over the Feasts of the Lord in their biblical and historical keeping. Then she goes over the fulfillment of the Spring feast by Jesus. And then moves from there to the fulfillment of the rest of the feasts by Jesus the Messiah.

She includes not only the Feasts in Leviticus, but the other two feasts mentioned in the Bible Hanukkah (Chanukah) and Purim. Also, she analyzes the feasts in Leviticus in the context in which they are given. These includes the Sabbath and the gap between the spring and fall feasts.

She sums up with questions about keeping the Feasts today and showing how the Feasts are a picture the redemptive history and the Gospel itself.

She focuses on the Jesus Christ and is premillennial and restoration of Israel. Different people, even at Mission Valley Community Chapel (though we are Christ centered, pre-millennial, and restoration of Israel), have different views on some of the details of the Feasts and their fulfillment.

You can pick up a free copy at the Chapel. Even if you disagree with some of the details, you might find it thought-provoking!

Passover and Jesus Our Passover Lamb by “Grandma” Joelee for kids

“Passover and Jesus Our Passover Lamb“ by “Grandma Joelee” Chamberlain. This is a Children’s Bible Audios-Stories for Kids free audio. You can listen on SermonAudio

In this audio, first she tells the story of the original Passover in Exodus. Then, she connects this with John the Baptist to the Lord Jesus Christ being “the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.“ She tells of Christ’s crucifixion and relates Passover to it as a type, a “picture-prophecy.”

She then goes on to connect the work of Jesus Christ to the Feast of Unleavened Bread and First Fruits. She develops the number of points and connections in a way that a child can understand and enjoy.

Passover and Jesus Our Passover Lamb

This offers apologetics for kids through fulfilled prophecy and type. It is specifically an Easter apologetic. It can we listen to Jess for enjoyment, part of homeschooling, or other schooling. Many kids like listening to them when they go to bed.

This is part of her Holidays & Other Stories Series. But as this audio has fulfilled typology, you could also go with her Apologetics for Kids Series. And it fills out her Escape from Egypt (the Book of Exodus), too.

Lyrics

Passover Lamb
Words by Sam Nadler & Stuart Dauermann, music by Stuart Dauermann

Pharaoh had us all enslaved, lab’ring in his land.
The Lord God heard our cry and freed us by His hand.
And by the blood of the pure and spotless Lamb
We’re free; we are all set free.
Passover’s Lamb’s blood upon the door,
Forming a cross to seal us from death’s jaw.
And by the blood of the pure and spotless Lamb,
We’re free; we are all set free.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Abram,
Thank you for the Lamb.

God gave us Israel, but we turned away.
God gave the Law to us, but we disobeyed.
God gave His only Son to come and set us free.
We’re free, we are all set free.
Yes, we all did turn away and we all were lost.
So we took a perfect Lamb and nailed Him to a cross.
And by the blood of the pure and spotless Lamb
We’re free, we are all set free.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Isaac,
Thank you for the Lamb.

Three days He lay; then Jesus did rise.
So all who will believe never have to die.
And by the blood of the pure and spotless Lamb
We’re free, we are all set free.
Passover Lamb’s blood upon the door,
Forming a cross to seal us from death’s jaw.
And by the blood, of the pure and spotless Lamb,
We’re free; we are all set free.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Jacob,
Thank you for the Lamb.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Israel,
Thank you for the Lamb.

Analysis

This is a great song from Jews for Jesus from the early 70s. It is off their second album, “I am Not Ashamed.” We do not have this one in our Friendship With God Hymnal. Next, some analysis.

This song has three verses and one course that is repeated in varying ways. The first verse is about the Exodus and the Passover lamb. The second verse is about Christ our Passover lamb dying for us. The last verse is about his resurrection (First Fruits/Easter). These verses have a pattern of seven, six, six, four, seven, six, six, four feet to them. This complexity reminds me of Joni Mitchell’s early folk music. The course is repeated once after each of the first two verses and twice after the last. The God of Abram, Isaac, Jacob, and Israel is praise. Note how alleluia is used instead of hallelujah. This is because the open vowels in alleluia work better here.

This is another great song by Stuart Dauermann co-authored with Sam Nadler.
