Yeshua the Lamb of God
The Community of Israel Required A Lamb
Erroneous anti-Semitic doctrine says the Jewish people killed Jesus. In much of Europe during World War II, Jewish people were not permitted to live—for no reason except they were Jewish. They were called “Christ-killers.” This concept was not new. This erroneous theology that the Jewish people had killed Jesus began in the early Church.
But is this true?
Matthew 20:19 says He would be turned “over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”
Did the Gentiles kill Yeshua?
So who killed Jesus?
Exodus 12:6 says that all the people of the community of Israel must slaughter the “Passover lamb.” Messiah, our Passover Lamb, died for the sins of all the world so those who believe in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
Yeshua said in John 10:17-18 that He alone had the authority to end His life.
He laid down His life freely in order that the Scriptures would be fulfilled.
Without His sacrificial act, we would have no redemption.
The assembly killed Yeshua because He had to die—and chose to die for us as our Passover Lamb.
This Passover and Easter let us CELEBRATE the risen Lord our Passover Lamb who died on the cross to fulfill His wonderful plan of Salvation for all that believe in Him and finally speak up with one voice against this dreadful anti sematic doctrine and renewed sentiment in our society.
