4) What did each lamb sacrificed represent?
It was a type of the lamb of God, Jesus (Jn 1:29), who shed his blood for the household of faith in order to give them life from out of death and sin. Specifically, beyond the general salvation, his sacrifice gives those faithful spirit- begotten, his first fruits or representative first borns from among the dead, the opportunity to be chosen as his body, much like the Jewish first-borns became represented in the tribe of Levi – where the tabernacle services and priesthood came. (1 Cor 5:6, Rev 5:12)
5) Why was Jesus compared to a lamb?
(Joh 1:29, 36, 1Pe 1:19, Rev5:6) His blood shed was related to the pascal lamb’s, whose blood was put one the post (similar to the heave) and the lintel, (similar to the wave) of blood of sin offering sacrifices in the tabernacle.
6) Why were the animals (lamb or goat) to be without defects?
Signify without sin as Christ). (Heb 5:6, 1 Pet 1:19, Heb 7:26, 1 Jn 3:5)
7) What did the blood signify?
(Heb 9:13-14, 1 Pet 1:2) Exo 12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye 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.
8) How long were the Israelites to commemorate the Passover?
Exo 12:14 … ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.
Exo 12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.
