On the night of the Passover, Jesus gathered with His disciples to share the feast. As they reflected on the greatest moment in their history as a nation, their redemption from slavery, Jesus caused their minds to think of a vastly new kind of redemption. In the last of our Gospel Drama messages, Pastor Joe investigates why it is still vital for the church to celebrate this new feast of Jesus.
When we come to salvation in Christ what are we actually doing? Is it turning over a new leaf? Is it making a new commitment? Is it embracing a new community or set of rules for life?
