Portraits of Passover: Painted in Red
This issue of Zion’s Fire is devoted to a biblical theme that is vital for God’s people but is often misunderstood or overlooked. We’ve entitled it Portraits of Passover, as it brings together an insightful collection of articles that highlight important aspects of the oldest, continuously observed holiday on Earth.
The biblical feast of Passover, and more specifically, the Passover Seder dinner – which has been at the heart of the Jewish Passover observance for millennia – utilizes symbolism, prayer, and recitation to recount the dramatic true story of the Hebrews’ enslavement in Egypt and reflect on God’s miraculous deliverance of His chosen people.
