Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present."

Passover Unit Study: The 3rd Cup=REDEMPTION

Today we spent loads of time in the kitchen, measuring and baking! We prepared Matzah which we will eat tomorrow with our other Passover foods. The kids are really looking forward to having the whole meal since each day we have broken the ceremony down, explaining all the significance for each cup and food served. On Sunday we will attend the the actual Seder dinner/ceremony for real!

The cup of redemption reminds us of the shed blood of the innocent Lamb which brought about redemption from Egypt.

In Luke 22:20 and 1 Corinthians 11:25 we see that Jesus took the third cup saying, "... 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.'"

This was not just any cup, it was the cup of redemption from slavery. Today,  this is our communion cup! The 3rd cup comes at the end of the Seder meal, but is not the last cup.....
