Feast of Unleavened Bread (Lev. 23:6–8): “And Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst’” (Jn. 6:35). Jesus was free of sin and a living sacrifice, suitable before the Lord to be pierced for our transgressions.
Application: Jesus is the unleavened bread. As His disciples, we are to be free of sin and flee from it. When we fall into sin because of our fallen nature, we have the blood of Jesus to cleanse us, if we repent and confess our sins to Him (1 Jn. 1:8–10). We are to eat unleavened bread as His body at communion: “Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth” (1 Cor. 5:6b–8).
