THE FESTIVAL OF UNLEAVENED BREAD

The seven days of Unleavened Bread were a part of the covenant relationship that God had with Israel. Any Israelite who did not observe this festival was no longer entitled to the benefits of the covenant relationship and was to be removed from Israel. This physical punishment foreshadowed the eternal punishment for those who disregard God's instructions concerning the real, symbolic, and prophetic meaning of leavening under the New Covenant. This study gives a detailed explanation of the past, present, and future meanings of this seven-day festival. (5 Documents)
