Pesach Part Four

Brechat Haner (Kindling of The Candles)

At the beginning of the Seder, the lady of the house lights the candles. The lady of the house always begins the Seder by lighting the candles. According to Rabbinical law, the woman is responsible for putting out the lights in the first place. Therefore, only a woman can turn them on again.

This is a reference to the fact that through Eve, sin was introduced into the world. I find it interesting that Rabbinical law states that only through a woman can sin be ushered out of the world.

In fact, that is exactly how it happened. Through a virgin woman, the mother of Y'shua, Mary, the Messiah was brought into this world. It was through the Messiah, sin was overcome.

I amazes me that my Jewish brothers don't see that this part of the Seder was prophetic and only one candidate has fulfilled it. That is Y'shua, the Messiah, and not only the savior of the world, but the Jewish race.

Beruch habah, Y'shua, b'shem Adonai.

Blessed is he, Y'shua, who comes in the name of the Lord.

Shabbat Shalom
