Psalms 113 – 118: The Praise of the Passover


Praise the Lord. Everybody – praise the Lord – for Who He is!

 Praise the Lord for What He has done.

Praise the Lord for What He does today.

Praise the Lord for He is Our God.

Praise the Lord because He is the God of all.

Praise the Lord because He is the God of SALVATION!

HALLELUJAH! Praise the Lord!

This is the attitude and perspective of the Hallel, Psalms 113 -118, that are sung during the course of the Passover celebration. In the Passover program that I present in the video below, we will try to grasp what these psalms declare and praise the Lord through them as we experience Jesus’ Passover celebration as described in the gospels.

Throughout the Passover meal, the story of God bringing the Israelites out of Egypt is told. Different aspects of this service have developed over the years, called a Seder, and the order of the service varies slightly from book to book. A Seder which is hosted by a Jewish community, or a Seder hosted by a Christian who explains the ritual and symbolism is very meaningful.

We will see how the Hallel psalms fit into the program, and celebrate the truths that they give us about our God, His power, His love and His salvation.

Our class enjoyed a very special Passover / Last Supper experience around a lovely table!
