Until I started this year-long trek through the Bible, I don’t think I’ve ever caught this passage before (which is mentioned several different times in the Pentateuch):
“You must set aside for the LORD your God all the firstborn males from your flocks and herds. Do not use the firstborn of your herds to work your fields, and do not shear the firstborn of your flocks. Instead, you and your family must eat these animals in the presence of the LORD your God each year at the place he chooses. But if this firstborn animal has any defect, such as lameness or blindness, or if anything else is wrong with it, you must not sacrifice it to the LORD your God.” Deuteronomy 15:19-21
Who is called the “firstborn over all creation” (Colossians 1:15)?
Jesus (the Lamb of God)
What did they do on the night of the Last Supper, which we continue to do today when we celebrate Communion (Matthew 26:26)?
Eat his body.
