This is a true story. It comes from Exodus Chapter 12 in your Bible.

In the Old Testament, we are reminded again and again through the stories that when God made a promise, He kept it. Even when the perfect Creation was ruined, God made a plan to save us from sin. He loved us enough to sacrifice something very special to Him.

In Exodus chapter 12 of the Bible, the story of the Passover takes place during the time when the Israelites were enslaved in Egypt. God sends a series of plagues to persuade Pharaoh to release the Israelites, but Pharaoh remains stubborn.

As the final plague, God declares that the firstborn of every household in Egypt will die, both humans and animals. However, God provides a way for the Israelites to be spared from this plague. He instructs them to select a male lamb or goat without blemish on the 10th day of the month and keep it until the 14th day. Then, at twilight, they are to slaughter the lamb and apply its blood on the doorposts and lintel of their houses. They are to roast and eat the lamb along with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

That night, God passes through the land of Egypt, and when He sees the blood on the doorposts, He "passes over" those houses, sparing the firstborns inside. However, in Egypt, there is great mourning as the firstborn of both humans and animals are struck down.

Pharaoh finally relents and allows the Israelites to leave. They quickly gather their belongings and, under Moses' leadership, they depart from Egypt, beginning their journey towards the Promised Land.

The Passover event is significant for the Israelites as it marks their liberation from slavery and the beginning of their journey towards freedom. It also establishes the institution of the Passover feast as a lasting memorial for the Israelites to remember God's deliverance. Later in the Bible, the Passover becomes a significant symbol pointing to Jesus Christ as the ultimate Passover Lamb, whose blood saves believers from the consequences of sin and offers eternal life.

A snapshot of the Passover
Review by Laura
This is a wonderful introduction to what the Passover is all about. The story briefly goes over the preceding plagues that lead up to the one that resulted in Pharaoh finally agreeing to let God’s people go. It shows how that final plague was one that foreshadowed how Jesus would pay the price to save us. Later it tells of John the Baptist proclaiming that Jesus is the lamb of God, meaning THE Passover lamb. I love how it points out that our depravity needs a savior because of God’s holiness & makes it very clear that Jesus is that savior. This book has the seek & find pictures as well as a short glossary at the end of the book just like other books of this wonderful series.
Great for reading practice and starting gospel conversations with children
Review by JoyfulMommy
Not only is this a wonderful little book with a powerful message, it also provides great reading practice. My early readers enjoy reading some of the pages when we are reading this aloud together and though they need help with some of the words, many of them are sight words or easily sounded out phonetically. It’s also easy and enjoyable for my third grader (and up) to read to younger siblings, and easy for them to follow and understand. All of them love looking for the hidden pictures throughout!

The Passover is a rich foreshadowing of Jesus coming as the perfect Passover Lamb, and this book does an excellent job of showing how it points to the gospel. It has led into some rich gospel conversations with my children as we read and talk about it. I’m thankful for this addition to our library.
Review by Becky V.
We have really loved this series in our house! This book summarizes the many signs that God sent to the Egyptians through Moses to let His people go, but the main focus is on the sign of the Passover.

I really appreciate how the book starts by making it clear that this is a true story and it gives the passage in the Bible where it can be found. My kids enjoy the hidden pictures that they can look for as we read, and I love that the author uses those same pictures at the end to summarize the story. The pictures in the book are excellent.

The best part - the author points you to Jesus by explaining how the Passover is a clear picture of Jesus.
