Published 9:34am Friday, March 22, 2013

The last supper of Jesus was actually a Jewish Passover. Liz Goldstein, of Jews for Jesus, will recreate the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus’ death and resurrection in a presentation titled “Christ in the Passover” at 7 p.m. Wednesday at First Presbyterian Church at 308 Water St. in Albert Lea.

Tables will be set with items traditionally used at the Passover meal. Goldstein will explain the connection between the events of the first Passover as well as the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion celebration today.

Jews for Jesus has presented “Christ in the Passover” at more than 38,000 churches. Goldstein is available for questions after the presentation. Call the church at 373-2035 for more information. There is no admission fee.
