Kayla and I just found this fun thing as we are preparing our Passover Seder meal for tonight.Use your mouse to move the elements of the Seder plate into their correct places. The elements tell the story.
Here is a little summary:
Zero'ah (shank bone of lamb) - the lamb of passover/lamb of God
Marror (horseradish/bitter herb) - the bitterness of slavery
Beitzah (roasted or boiled egg) - Pharaoh's heart was hardened. Also used to remind that we no longer need to roast a sacrifice
Charoset (apples & honey mixture) - represents the brick mixture made by the Hebrews
Chazeret (lettuce) - can represent the brevity of the joys of sin, which quickly shrivel and rot
Karpas (parsley) - symbol of life and/or the hyssop used to spread the blood on the doors. Dipped in salt water, symbol of tears.
We are especially enjoying this year the rich symbolism of Passover and Good Friday. The first passover was such a vivid picture of what Jesus would do for us on Good Friday.
