At the Lamb’s High Feast We Sing - Comfort for Christians:
"What is a Passover Sacrifice?
Christianity cannot really be understood in any depth apart from a knowledge of the first five books of the Old Testament. Genesis and Exodus particularly are historical records of God’s actions in relation to human beings.
Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover. And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. -Exodus 12:21-23"
