Markle Church of Christ will host ‘Christ in Passover’

The Markle Church of Christ will present "Christ in the Passover" on Wednesday, March 20, at 7 p.m.

Shmuel Abramson, of Jews for Jesus, will recreate the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus' death and resurrection.

Abramson will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance. He will also explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, as well as the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion celebration today.

Jews for Jesus has presented "Christ in the Passover" at more than 38,000 churches.

The book "Christ in the Passover," co-written by Jews for Jesus founder Moishe Rosen and his wife, Ceil, 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. Brickner succeeded Rosen as executive director in 1996.

Abramson will answer questions after the presentation.
