Passover, the Ultimate SuperfoodJune 27, 2023
Passover is the ultimate superfood and is what we need the most in this age when people are looking for food to enhance their health and well-being. Passover is a law established by Jesus to cure the spiritual sickness of humankind, which is death. Passover is a special ceremony that allows us to eat Jesus’ flesh and blood which contains spiritual nutrients to give us eternal life.
Hidden Ultimate Superfood
All people are lamenting over the agony of death. They spend money to buy healthy and nutritious food called ‘superfood’. The superfood is becoming a popular dietary choice across the globe due to its specific health claims being better than those of conventional products. However, humankind still cannot escape death. Jesus revealed that the solution to death is to receive eternal life.
Matthew 13:34-35 Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.”
Jesus speaks in parables to utter secrets hidden since the creation of the world. Thus, the secret to receive eternal life can be found in the Book of Genesis which contains the creation of the world.
Superfood in the Garden of Eden
In the Garden of Eden, death entered this world when Adam and Eve ate the food God prohibited.
Genesis 2:16-17 And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”
God commanded Adam and Eve not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. However, they disobeyed the words of God. As a result, humankind has been suffering in the agony of death. Where there is a problem, there is a solution. The superfood which gives eternal life can also be found in the Garden of Eden.
Genesis 3:22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and also take from the tree of life, eat, and live forever.”
If anyone eats from the tree of life, he will live forever. Therefore, the superfood we must eat in the Garden of Eden is the tree of life. It is the greatest news that people who are destined to die can receive eternal life by eating from the tree of life. As the tree of life is just a parable, there must be its reality. Jesus also taught us the reality of the tree of life.
Jesus Gave Us the Superfood
John 6:53-55 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.
Jesus, who is God, gave us His flesh and blood as real food and drink. Just as God is immortal, anyone who eats His flesh and blood will become immortal. Jesus identified that those who will not eat His flesh and blood have no life. In the Garden of Eden, the tree of life is the only food that gives eternal life. However, Jesus taught us that the only food we must eat to have eternal life is His flesh and blood. Therefore, the reality of the tree of life is Jesus’ flesh and blood.
The Ultimate Superfood
Jesus established a covenant that allows us to eat the ultimate superfood which gives eternal life.
Matthew 26:17-19 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” He replied, “… I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
Jesus commanded His disciples to prepare the Passover, and kept it with them.
Matthew 26:26-28 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”
The Passover bread and wine represent Jesus’ flesh and blood. Thus, the ultimate superfood is the Passover of the New Covenant. It contains the special nutrients that change our mortal body to become immortal and live forever without dying. It is a superfood that can neither be found nor bought by anyone. Those who hesitate to eat the Passover will have no choice but become slaves to death. It is the superfood that all people must eat to enter eternal life.
