Passover: Truth & Tradition

Passover: Truth & Tradition is a 3-week, Bible-discussion IJS-Lite Workshop designed to provide an informative and relaxed biblical overview of Passover and its relationship to the modern Jewish holiday of Pesach and the Christian practice of the Lord’s Supper. God’s resolute covenants will strengthen your faith, and the Messianic allusions in Passover traditions will deepen your understanding of redemption. Practical, faith-life lessons, course materials, and thought-provoking discussion questions may be easily adapted for use in the local church. (A digital subscription to IMG and a digital or print copy of The Feasts of Israel by Bruce Scott are required for this workshop.)
