So Close and Yet So Far!

I recently received a very interesting book about the Passover. It is a Jewish catechetical book, called, "Pesach". Here are a few of the pages in the book. Sorry, no pictures!

"Daddy, what are we looking for?"
"We are searching for Chometz, so that there won't be any crumbs left. You see David, the bread and all the other Chometz we have found, we now burn."

"Mommy, what does Pesach mean?"
"Pesach means Passover. Hashem passed over the homes of our fathers in Egypt and saved their first-born sons, while those of the Egyptians died."

"Mommy, what are you doing?"
"Children, I am making Charoses, which is a mixture of chopped nuts, sliced apple, cinnamon, and wine. It reminds us of the mortar, and the clay from which our fathers had to make bricks while they were slaves in Egypt."

"Now children, this as you see, is the Zeroa. It reminds us of the lamb which was the Korban Pesach."

"Daddy, why do we drink four cups of wine at the Seder?"
"Hashem used four different words as to how He would free our people from Egypt."

"Yes, Children, let us hope that next year we will be in Yerusholayim"

How close to and yet how far from Jesus! So many things that point to the death of Christ! So many things that point to what God has done and is doing in Jesus Christ. May God embolden us to reach out to Jews in our midst. May we all meet in the heavenly Yerusholayim!
