The Passover celebration was the heart of the Jewish faith. At the time of the first Passover in Egypt a lamb was sacrificed so that the destroyer would pass over the house and not kill the first born. That lamb pointed ahead to the Lamb of God who would take away the sin of the world. This may seem like an odd place to begin a study of Christmas, but without this understanding it will be difficult to see why Jesus had to come. Mary’s question, “Why did the lamb have to die?” is as powerful as it is filled with truth. The fact is that the lamb did nothing wrong. That innocent lamb died because we have done wrong. We need someone to take our place. Ultimately that would be the promised Messiah. We know him as Jesus. He came at Christmas.
