This morning, 3-year-old Kirsten joined Dad and the boys for our morning Bible reading. We are near the end of the book of Luke, and Jesus is getting people riled up – almost the time that they killed him. Which also happened to be Passover, when they kill lambs.
I read the words, “The day had come for the Festival of Thin Bread, and it was time to kill the Passover lambs.” Immediately, Kirstie responded, “Oh no!” A seriously concerned look came over her face. Why were they going to kill lambs???
I smiled and tried to explain old testament sacrifices, and even how Jesus was the Lamb of God… and the cool significance there. But I think it might have all been lost on the disturbing thoughts of those bad guys actually killing the Passover lambs!!!
