About Rev Samuel F. Sarpong


“And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where you are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.”  (Exodus 12:13)

Pesach (Passover)—the first of God’s appointed seasonsbegins tonight, Samuel!
All over the world the Jewish People will be gathering at home with their families and friends for a special service that is always held on the first night of Passover.  Some families hold this special celebration on the first and second nights!

The Haggadah, the colorful book in the above photo, is the Jewish text that
sets forth the order of the Passover Seder.  It is estimated that there are over
2,000 versions of this sacred text, which is the most published Jewish text
apart from the Bible.
On the first two nights of the Festival, the story of the Exodus from Egypt is retold using a book called the Haggadah (the telling), which contains instructions for the Passover Seder (order), with all its symbolic foods, the blessings, and the Passover story.
The retelling of that story concludes with a wonderful feast.
“The LORD’s Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month.”  (Leviticus 23:5)
 Rev Samuel F Sarpong
