GUEST,Shlio BS: Why don't Christians Celebrate Passover? (124* d) RE: BS: Why don't Christians Celebrate Passover? 12 Apr 04

GUEST - It's not that the ten commandments are irrelevant. I understand that the law culd not be changed.

But Christians believe that Jesus (Yeshua?) fulfilled the law by his death and resurrection. Jewish law was split into three basic categories: Ceremonial, moral and religious. Jesus fulfilled two of these categories, meaning that the Jewish ceremonial and religious laws no longer had to be observed.

The Passover was symbolic (Christians believe, and IMMHO) of the crucifixion (slaughter of the lamb saving God's people). Once the Crucifixion occured, such ceremonies were no longer necessary.

Jesus placed the two most important commandments above the original confining ten. This frees Christians by letting them do what is right, rather than what stringent religious law dictates.

Georgiansilver, I think I may have repeated what you said, much more eloquently, previously, so my apologies. I've enjoyed reading your posts.
