FHE Lesson {Passover}



Opening Song: Follow the Prophet #110 {verse 5}

Opening Prayer:

Lesson:

Passover this year starts Monday 25 March. Perfect timing for a Passover meal and lesson.
Easter and Passover don't always happen at the same time.

I'm not Jewish or celebrate Passover in the proper manner but its always a fun lesson for kids so I have borrowed from the idea over the years.

For an easy Passover Seder:

Hard Boiled Egg:
Symbol of Life

Lamb and Lamb Bone:
Reminders of the Temple Sacrifice and the first Passover Lamb
The roasted shank bone of a lamb reminds us of the tenth plague in Egypt, when all firstborn Egyptians were killed. The Israelites marked the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a lamb as a signal that death should pass over them

Bitter herbs (horseradish):
The hard bitter life they had to lead

Parsley:
Dipped into salt water reminds us of the tears the Jews cried in Egypt.
Greens are symbol of coming spring which brings hope

Charoset:
Represents the mortar the slaves in Egypt had to use to build the cities of Pharoah
{Charoset can be made by mixing grated apple, honey, chopped nuts and cinnamon}

Flat Bread:
The unleavened bread is a reminder of the haste with which the Jews left Egypt

Grape Juice:
Thanks to God for his blessings and creations.

Watch:

You can also make the connection that Jesus celebrated Passover the week before he died


Closing Song: Choose the Right Way #160

Closing Prayer:

Hi! Thanks for the ideas! I just wanted to let you know that the cartoon video link didn't work. Also, do you think you could do some ideas on teaching an FHE on the sacrament--what it is, why we do it, we we're reverent for it etc.?
