Symbolism in Passover and Easter Observances
The Passover was first instituted several thousand years ago in Egypt, when God fulfilled His promise to free the descendants of Jacob (whose name was changed to Israel) from Egyptian captivity.
Genesis 15:12-16 says, “When the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell on Abram. Now terror and great darkness fell on him. He said to Abram, ‘Know for sure that your offspring will live as foreigners in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them. They will afflict them four hundred years. I will also judge that nation, whom they will serve. Afterward they will come out with great wealth, but you will go to your fathers in peace. You will be buried at a good old age. In the fourth generation they will come here again, for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet full.’ ” (WEB)
