Christ in the Passover presentation set

Eric Bennett of Jews for Jesus will re-create the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus’ death and Resurrection in Christ in the Passover, a presentation at 10:30 a.m. March 6 at Silver Hills Community Church. Bennett will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance. He also will explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption Jesus accomplished, as well as the bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion celebration today.

Christ in the Passover has been presented at more than 38,000 churches. Moishe Rosen, who founded Jews for Jesus in 1973, co-wrote the book, “Christ in the Passover,” with his wife, Ceil. The book, a look at Passover in ancient times and how it’s practiced today, will be available after the presentation. Also available will be a DVD of the Christ in the Passover presentation with David Brickner, the executive director of Jews for Jesus, officiating.

The presentation is free. For more information, call 775-885-2812, or go to http://chasingjoy.org/default.aspx.
