Today I Ate Unleavened Bread.

Last year I bought A Christ-Centered Easter by Janet & Jow Hales, because I want to have less eggs and bunnies and more about the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus Christ in our Easter holiday. 



Today is the day we assume the Savior and His disciples had the Last Supper, which mostly likely would have been the Passover (which Christ turned into the Sacrament). 



So my family and I sampled the foods of the Passover.  We talked about the original story of how the Passover came into being and the symbolism behind each of the foods (from a Christian standpoint). 


I made the unleavened bread, which is soooo simple and plain.  I also roasted some lamb with seasoning.  Like I said, it was just a sampling not a feast. We used romaine lettuce for the bitter herbs and grape juice for wine. 

And if you feel like reading more about it, Terry W. Treseder wrote a great article called, Passover Promises Fulfilled in the Last Supper
