Passover Quotes from the Bible… or Not

Passover (also known as Pesach) is upon us once again, and this year I thought to keep it simple. So with that, here are a bunch of Passover quotes from the Bible, and of course some NOT from the Bible too.

Passover Quotes NOT from the Bible

“Passover affirms the great truth that liberty is the inalienable right of every human being.” – Morris Joseph, Passover Quotes

“Historically the profoundest meaning of Passover is something which sets Judaism apart from other religions. It marks the birth of a nation. Out of a mass of slaves, Moses fashioned a nation and gave them a faith.” – Philip S. Bernstein, Passover Quotes

“Passover is our tradition, and I like to keep up with that. Our ancestors couldn’t eat bread, and it’s nice for us to celebrate that every year by going through their struggles.” – Marsha Cohen, Passover Quotes

“Passover has a message for the conscience and the heart of all mankind. For what does it commemorate? It commemorates the deliverance of a people from degrading slavery, from most foul and cruel tyranny. And so, it is Israel’s – nay, God’s protest against unrighteousness, whether individual or national.” – Morris Joseph, Passover Quotes

“Passover and Easter are the only Jewish and Christian holidays that move in sync, like the ice skating pairs we saw during the winter Olympics.” – Marvin Olasky, Passover Quotes

“Easter is as important to Christians as Passover is to the Jews.” – Glenn Duffy, Passover Quotes

May God bless those who observe this Passover holiday.


Passover Quotes from the Bible… or Not — 4 Comments

  1. I don’t understand why Christians do not celebrate Passover? I understand that Jesus became the unblemished Passover Lamb, and that’s why the later Christians started “Easter”…but Jesus told the disciples to always celebrate Passover…thanks for your posts…I always read them. God bless you and your family…

  2. It was no coincidence that Jesus died on Passover and resurrected 3 days later, just take a look at how in Exodus the Passover Lamb was killed and 3 days later Israel walked through the Red Sea on dry ground to freedom. So if you think about, Easter and Passover are really the same holiday.
