What is a Passover or Pesah?
A Passover is a Jewish festival that commemorates the exodus of the Jews from Egypt and is marked chiefly by the Seder ritual and the eating of matzoth. It begins on the 14th day of Nisan and is celebrated for eight days by Orthodox and Conservative Jews outside of Israel and for seven days by Reform Jews and Jews in Israel.

In Nissan 14 BC , The Passover was Inaugurated:

Jehovah God Said,
“‘And they must eat the flesh on this night. They should eat it roasted with fire and with unfermented cakes along with bitter greens.
9 Do not eat any of it raw or boiled, cooked in water, but roast with fire, its head together with its shanks and its interior parts. 10 And YOU must not leave any of it over till morning, but what is left over of it till morning YOU should burn with fire.
11 And in this way YOU should eat it, with YOUR hips girded, sandals on YOUR feet and YOUR staff in YOUR hand; and YOU must eat it in haste.
It is Jehovah’s passover.
12 And I must pass through the land of Egypt on this night and strike every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from man to beast; and on all the gods of Egypt I shall execute judgments. I am Jehovah. 13 And the blood must serve as YOUR sign upon the houses where YOU are; and I must see the blood and pass over YOU, and the plague will not come on YOU as a ruination when I strike at the land of Egypt.
14 “‘And this day must serve as a memorial for YOU, and YOU must celebrate it as a festival to Jehovah throughout YOUR generations. As a statute to time indefinite YOU should celebrate it.
15 Seven days YOU are to eat unfermented cakes. Yes, on the first day YOU are to take away sourdough from YOUR houses, because anyone eating what is leavened, from the first day down to the seventh, that soul must be cut off from Israel.
16 And on the first day there is to take place for YOU a holy convention, and on the seventh day a holy convention. No work is to be done on them. Only what every soul needs to eat, that alone may be done for YOU”.(Exodus 12:8-15)

Holy Communion and The New Covenant:

Jesus Launched a New Covenant.

“As they continued eating, Jesus took a loaf and, after saying a blessing, he broke it and, giving it to the disciples, he said: “TAKE, eat. This means my body.” 27 Also, he took a cup and, having given thanks, he gave it to them, saying: “Drink out of it, all of YOU; 28 for this means my ‘blood of the covenant,’ which is to be poured out in behalf of many for forgiveness of sins. 29 But I tell YOU, I will by no means drink henceforth any of this product of the vine until that day when I drink it new with YOU in the kingdom of my Father.”(Mathew 26:26-29)

Luke reported:
“Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: “This means my body which is to be given in YOUR behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” 20 Also, the cup in the same way after they had the evening meal, he saying: “This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in YOUR behalf.”(Luke 22:19)

What is the difference between the Passover and the New Covenant?

Why is the new covenants better than the old covenant?

Jesus further said,
I am the living bread that came down from heaven; if ANYONE eats of this bread he will live forever; and, for a fact, the bread that I shall give is my flesh in behalf of the life of the WORLD. “Accordingly Jesus said to them: “Most truly I say to YOU, Unless YOU eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, YOU have NO LIFE in yourselves.
He that feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has everlasting life, and I shall resurrect him at the last day; for my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. He that feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood remains in union with me, and I in union with him. Just as the living Father sent me forth and I live because of the Father, he also that feeds on me, even that one will live because of me.”(John 6:51-57)

Why is it important that all believers should per take of the symbolic body and blood of Jesus?

What might be the consequences of Rejecting Jesus blood and body?

What is the average age of Jesus disciples that per took of his body?

How Often Should We partake of Jesus Body?

Apostle Paul remind Christians about the Memorial when he wrote in
1 Corinthians 11:23-25b-26 “Keep doing this, as often as YOU drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as YOU eat this loaf and drink this cup, YOU keep proclaiming the death of the Lord, until he arrives.”

How many times should we eat this Holy Communion in view of Apostle Paul letter to the Corinthian Congregation?

What must individual do before eating and drinking the Lord body?

Then Is the eating of the emblem, the symbolic body of Jesus for every body?

What is the consequence of disregarding this warning of Apostle Paul to do self examination before eating and drinking the Lord body?

Last Comment:

As we have learn from the Inauguration of PassOver in Nisan 14, Bc on Jewish Calendar, the Passover were to be done as a yearly memorial of when God’s executional Angels Passover the Jewish houses and destroy the first born Child of every living being of Egyptians.

Similarly, Jesus Inaugurated the New Covenant with his blood on Nisan 14 CE for all believers to eat and drink the symbolic flesh and blood which he uses to reconciled us back to God and to grant us everlasting life. These New Covenant give us the privilege to become God’s children. Apostle Paul says, as often as we eat the body of Christ we are remembering and proclaiming his dead until he arrives. That shows those who choose to do it annually or four times in a year commit no sin. The bottom line is, it must be eating by all believers.
Therefore, we should examine ourselves and make sure we are fit to eat and drink the emblem of Jesus body.(John 6: 41-58)

What is the most important thing about Holy Communion or Jesus Memorial?

Why should we not judge those who eat it more than one time in a year?

If Jesus arrives in 1914 as some religion organization make us to believe, the memorial suppose to have stopped in 1914 based on I Corinthian 11:25B?
