SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:14 Y este día os ha de ser en memoria, y habéis de celebrarlo como fiesta solemne al SEÑOR por vuestras edades; por estatuto perpetuo lo celebraréis.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 12:14 Verse 14. A memorial] To keep up a remembrance of the severity and goodness, or justice and mercy, of God. Ye shall keep it a feast - it shall be annually observed, and shall be celebrated with solemn religious joy, throughout your generations - as long as ye continue to be a distinct people; an ordinance - a Divine appointment, an institution of God himself, neither to be altered nor set aside by any human authority.
For ever] µlw[ tqj chukkath olam, an everlasting or endless statute, because representative of the Lamb of God who taketh away the sin of the world; whose mediation, in consequence of his sacrifice, shall endure while time itself lasts; and to whose merits and efficacy the salvation of the soul shall be ascribable throughout eternity. This, therefore, is a statute and ordinance that can have no end, either in this world or in the world to come. It is remarkable that though the Jews have ceased from the whole of their sacrificial system, so that sacrifices are no longer offered by them in any part of the world, yet they all, in all their generations and in all countries, keep up the remembrance of the passover, and observe the feast of unleavened bread. But no lamb is sacrificed. Their sacrifices have all totally ceased, ever since the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans.
Even the flesh that is used on this occasion is partly roasted and partly boiled, that it may not even resemble the primitive sacrifice; for they deem it unlawful to sacrifice out of Jerusalem. The truth is, the true Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world has been offered, and they have no power to restore the ancient type. See on "ver. 27".
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-20 - The Lord makes all things new to those whom he delivers from the bondage of Satan, and takes to himself to be his people. The time when he does this is to them the beginning of a new life. God appointe that, on the night wherein they were to go out of Egypt, each famil should kill a lamb, or that two or three families, if small, shoul kill one lamb. This lamb was to be eaten in the manner here directed and the blood to be sprinkled on the door-posts, to mark the houses of the Israelites from those of the Egyptians. The angel of the Lord, when destroying the first-born of the Egyptians, would pass over the house marked by the blood of the lamb: hence the name of this holy feast of ordinance. The passover was to be kept every year, both as remembrance of Israel's preservation and deliverance out of Egypt, an as a remarkable type of Christ. Their safety and deliverance were not reward of their own righteousness, but the gift of mercy. Of this the were reminded, and by this ordinance they were taught, that all blessings came to them through the shedding and sprinkling of blood Observe, 1. The paschal lamb was typical. Christ is our passover, 1C 5:7. Christ is the Lamb of God, Joh 1:29; often in the Revelation he is called the Lamb. It was to be in its prime; Christ offered up himsel in the midst of his days, not when a babe at Bethlehem. It was to be without blemish; the Lord Jesus was a Lamb without spot: the judge wh condemned Christ declared him innocent. It was to be set apart fou days before, denoting the marking out of the Lord Jesus to be Saviour, both in the purpose and in the promise. It was to be slain and roasted with fire, denoting the painful sufferings of the Lor Jesus, even unto death, the death of the cross. The wrath of God is a fire, and Christ was made a curse for us. Not a bone of it must be broken, which was fulfilled in Christ, Joh 19:33, denoting the unbroke strength of the Lord Jesus. 2. The sprinkling of the blood was typical The blood of the lamb must be sprinkled, denoting the applying of the merits of Christ's death to our souls; we must receive the atonement Ro 5:11. Faith is the bunch of hyssop, by which we apply the promises and the benefits of the blood of Christ laid up in them, to ourselves It was to be sprinkled on the door-posts, denoting the open professio we are to make of faith in Christ. It was not to be sprinkled upon the threshold; which cautions us to take heed of trampling under foot the blood of the covenant. It is precious blood, and must be precious to us. The blood, thus sprinkled, was a means of preserving the Israelite from the destroying angel, who had nothing to do where the blood was The blood of Christ is the believer's protection from the wrath of God the curse of the law, and the damnation of hell, Ro 8:1. 3. The solem eating of the lamb was typical of our gospel duty to Christ. The paschal lamb was not to be looked upon only, but to be fed upon. So we must by faith make Christ our own; and we must receive spiritual strength and nourishment from him, as from our food, see Joh 6:53, 55 It was all to be eaten; those who by faith feed upon Christ, must fee upon a whole Christ; they must take Christ and his yoke, Christ and his cross, as well as Christ and his crown. It was to be eaten at once, no put by till morning. To-day Christ is offered, and is to be accepte while it is called to-day, before we sleep the sleep of death. It wa to be eaten with bitter herbs, in remembrance of the bitterness of their bondage in Egypt; we must feed upon Christ with sorrow an brokenness of heart, in remembrance of sin. Christ will be sweet to us if sin be bitter. It was to be eaten standing, with their staves in their hands, as being ready to depart. When we feed upon Christ by faith, we must forsake the rule and the dominion of sin; sit loose to the world, and every thing in it; forsake all for Christ, and reckon i no bad bargain, Heb 13:13, 14. 4. The feast of unleavened bread wa typical of the Christian life, 1Co 5:7, 8. Having received Christ Jesu the Lord, we must continually delight ourselves in Christ Jesus. N manner of work must be done, that is, no care admitted and indulged which does not agree with, or would lessen this holy joy. The Jews wer very strict as to the passover, so that no leaven should be found in their houses. It must be a feast kept in charity, without the leaven of malice; and in sincerity, without the leaven of hypocrisy. It was by a ordinance for ever; so long as we live we must continue feeding upo Christ, rejoicing in him always, with thankful mention of the grea things he has done for us.
