Passover Explained To Nicodemus
Did you know that every Christian, on the planet earth, can recite John 3:16, but very few know John 3:14-15, which explains John 3:16? In these verses, Jesus discusses, with Nicodemus, the story of how Moses lifted up the serpent, in the desert. Whoever looked and placed their trust upon this act was saved from the sting of the serpent. The Bible is very consistent with its symbolism. The serpent symbolizes sin and its sting is death. Jesus goes on to tell Nicodemus that a Son of Man must take the place of the serpent. That is what Passover is all about, the passing of death, from mankind, due to the act of Y'shua, Jesus, upon the cross.
