When Jesus and his disciples shared The Last Supper, it was actually a Jewish Passover.
Rahel Landrum of Jews for Jesus will speak at The Well of Dyersburg on Saturday, April 8th at 5:00 PM. She will re-create the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus’ death and resurrection in a presentation called Christ in the Passover. Mrs. Landrum will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance. She will also explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, as well as the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion celebration today.
Jews for Jesus is an organization of Jewish people who believe in Jesus and who want to tell everyone about Jesus the Messiah. Jews for Jesus was founded in 1973 and is active in 13 countries.
Rahel Hirshenson Landrum was born in Romania and at the age of twelve, moved with her family to Israel. While her Jewish father was not a believer in Jesus until late in his life, she grew up attending church in Romania with her Christian mother. Before going into the Israeli army, Rahel accepted her pastor’s invitation to take a short Bible course. Through that study she became convinced that Jesus’ claim to be the way to God is true. Rahel has a B.A. in English from Haifa University, an M.A. in Jewish Missions from Fuller Theological Seminary, and studied at Capernwray, a Bible school in England.
Rahel will remain after the service for refreshments and conversation. Y’all come!
