One more item was to be on the Passover table – unleavened bread. Furthermore there could be no leaven found anywhere in the home.
God gave Israel very detailed instructions about the Passover lamb and Yeshua fulfilled every one of them. Although there continues to be a great debate on exactly what day Yeshua was crucified, it’s appropriate to accept in faith the logistics of that most unusual year.

Moses had warned that if Pharaoh didn’t let Israel, God’s firstborn, leave, then God would take the firstborn of Pharaoh. This tenth and final plague brought death to Egypt, to the firstborn of man and beast.
This separation of the Jews was crucial, because by the fourth plague, God made a distinction between people. While the rest of Egypt suffered from the swarms of flies, the Jewish people in Goshen were untouched.
