Betrothal and Passover…death to self


Passover…Hebrew ‘pesach’…pronounced ‘pe-sock’.

The paleo Hebrew word pictures tell us what the word meant to Moses.

The pictures spelling the word are of a human mouth or source of a river , a prop or support for guiding a tree the correct direction, and a fence or wall delineating an inner chamber and separating it from the outside.

The seven feasts are a progression of a betrothal and marriage process. ¬†Passover reminds us of a girl choosing to drink the cup of betrothal offered to her in her father’s house which is the beginning or source of her new life, choosing a new direction and looking toward entering the inner chamber with her bridegroom one day.
