The Haggadah is the book that is used during the Seder. The word Haggadah means “telling” and it is a written guide to the Passover Seder, a service which is rich in symbolic elements, retelling the Biblical narrative of the Israelites‘ exodus from Egypt.
The Seder biblically is held the first night of the holiday celebration although tradition has evolved it into being the first two nights. There is deep significance and beauty in the holiday and the celebration of it, however we also know that our standing with God is not bound with following the letter of the law but bound with our receiving the Messiah, Jesus for who He is, That is most important.
It is our Family Passover Haggadah and is Messianic in nature which means there is a focus on the Messiah and a revelation of Jesus that is gentle for the Jewish not yet believer, yet clear for the Jewish believer. In that it differs slightly from the traditional Passover Haggadah although the format, wording, and order of service is the same.
You are welcome to peruse, question, print, use for your own Seder, and distribute as you wish. It is a labor of love, born back in 1992 while pregnant with our first child and grown and evolved through the years as I became a follower of Jesus in March 2004 and God began to lead me to deeper understandings of this beautiful holiday celebration.
Praying you have beautiful, blessed, meaningful, and fun Seder services and Passover holiday! Pesach Sameach
