Feast of Unleavened Bread

Exodus 12:17-20, "You are to observe the festival of matzah, for on this very day I brought your divisions out of the land of Egypt. Therefore, you are to observe this day from generation to generation by a perpetual regulation. From the evening of the fourteenth day of the first month until the evening of the twenty-first day, you are to eat matzah. During those seven days, no leaven is to be found in your houses. Whoever eats food with hametz in it is to be cut off from the community of Isra’el — it doesn’t matter whether he is a foreigner or a citizen of the land. Eat nothing with hametz in it. Wherever you live, eat matzah.’”

Matzah, Matzah, Matzah!! From Matzah pizza to matzah ball soup, we tried it all. The kids had fun getting creative with the ways we got around using any leaven for the week.

1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, as you are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

1 Corinthians 5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

The kids love this song from their Wilderness Escape VBS, and they still dance and sing to it, at home and in the car. "G-d will guide us, He will provide for us. Through the wilderness, He will deliver us. He Is Faithful, He Is Faithful"

Explore the activities we enjoyed through the feast of ULB, including 10 Plagues, Seder Plates, Passover, and Feast of First Fruits! Glory and Gratitude to Adonai, the Great I AM.

On First Fruits, His Resurrection Day!, we start counting the Omer to Shavuot / Pentecost! 50 days! We have been greatly blessed by embracing the Biblical feasts the last year and a half.

For a simple, peace-filled guide to observing and enjoying the Biblical Feasts as a family and the ways they all point to Messiah, I really love this book. It has a lot of good suggestions outlined as well as menu ideas for all the celebrations. Blessings!
