Why Is This Night Different?

Telling the Story of Passover

“And when in time to come your son asks you, What does this mean?   You shall say to him, By a strong hand the LORD brought us out of Egypt, from the house of slavery”  (Ex. 13:14)

Introduction: Our story begins with a reading of Deut. 26:5-8.

I. The Telling (Ex. 13:8-vehigadeta labincha; see also, 13:14).    The Passover meal would not be eaten until the Passover story (maggid) was re-told.  The meaning preceded the meal.

II.     A Parable of Four Sons (4 kinds of sons)

A.           The ____________ (chakam) son

B.           The ____________ (rasha’) son

C.           The ____________ (tam) son

D.           The ____________ (lishol yodea) son

II. Making Passover your own (The 3 Essentials)

A.           _____________________________

B.            _____________________________

C.            _____________________________

Conclusion:     In every generation, the people of God must feel that they themselves came out of Egypt (Deut. 6:23).  Still waiting for Elijah (Mal. 3:1;4:5)?  He has already come; along with Jesus of Nazareth.  We tell it today for those with ears to hear.
