RUSHVILLE — First Christian Church in Knightstown

Jesus’ Last Supper was actually a Jewish Passover. Missionaries of Jews for Jesus will recreate the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus’ death and resurrection in a presentation called “Christ in the Passover” at the First Christian Church in Knightstown at 6 p.m. March 24. The public is invited to attend this free event.

Alan Bond, a missionary, will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance. He will also explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, 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. It has been enthusiastically received by Christians who appreciate learning more about the Jewish backgrounds of their faith.

Plan now to attend this special event March 24 at the First Christian Church in Knightstown. For more information, call the church at 765-345-2854.
