The Passover Seder is the oldest continuous religious service conducted in the world today. Given to the Jewish people some 3,300 years ago it still has relevance. Jesus was celebrating the Passover the night of the last supper. It was the elements of the Passover that Jesus used to introduce the Christian Communion. Christians have found that a better understanding of the Passover has greatly enhanced their understanding of Communion service. The Christ in the Passover presentation has served to improve the awareness and the worship of the Communion and has built bridges of understanding between Christians and their Jewish friends and neighbors.

Our presenter will be Rev. Mitch Triestman.

Mitch Triestman is serving the Lord with the Friends of Israel Gospel ministry. Mitch received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Bible from the Philadelphia College of Bible. After ten years of serving as the Philadelphia area director for the Chosen People Ministries, he returned to school at the Biblical Theological Seminary where he received a Master’s degree in Bible.

Mitch is the author of four books, the textbook Witnessing Biblically, an evangelistic Bible study book, Abraham the Committed Christian, a collection of sermons on Bible prophecy entitled Are we there yet? and Torah, Torah, Torah, a search for all the Christological teachings in the first five books of the Scriptures; as well as a multitude of articles in magazines and journals.

Rev. Triestman has been active in the field of Jewish Evangelism for more than forty years. His experiences in the field and his study of the scriptures from a Jewish perspective have made him a fascinating teacher. He has been a keynote speaker at numerous mission conferences. His extensive studies in the areas of Biblical prophecy and in Judaica make him an intriguing lecturer at a prophecy conference or in training on the feasts of Israel and Jewish customs in the Scriptures.

What Christians Get Wrong About Lent

On Ash Wednesday, a look at what Lent is really about.

This is an excerpt of an article written by Zachary K. Perkins for Relevant Magazine on March 5, 2014.

When I was a little kid, I remember asking my parents what “Lent” meant. I had seen the word placed on a sign outside of a local Catholic church just above the words “Fish Fry.” The reply I received was that it was “a Catholic thing.” I didn’t know much about Catholics back then, so I mostly shrugged it off.

As I grew older, I saw more people talking about Lent. Even those who weren’t Catholic. Our own evangelical church even began to talk about fasting during Lent.

What draws Christians from different backgrounds into Lent? As Lent starts today, it’s time to evaluate the deeper meaning of Lent. I personally think we embrace Lent because we intuitively realize these rhythms of spiritual life are part of giving our lives in worship—they have been in the Church for ages.

Many of us think of Lent as a period where we give something up for God in order to honor His sacrifice on the Cross for us, which we commemorate on Easter. While this is partially true, it’s not exactly how the early Church saw Lent. It’s more about anticipating the full impact of Easter for the time we’re in now and when Christ returns.
