Peter, this great disciple, tested and tried himself by trial and suffering, sometimes conquering, sometimes stumbling, could write these sufferings believers with an opening of praise because of the hope he had in the risen Christ.

The Passover of Exodus 12 is fulfilled in Jesus Christ. We have looked at the text carefully already, but now we must bring the message of the Passover forward and connect it to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Passover is a type of Jesus Christ. You need to view the Passover in relation to your own salvation through Jesus Christ. So I want to answer three questions to bring light upon the fulfillment of the Passover in Christ.
