Passover and its message in Old Testament times. In this article the Passover and its message in Old Testament times are discussed, with special reference to the message of the Passover in Exodus 12; during the reform of King Josiah of Judah; the message of the Passover as celebrated by the exiles returning from Babylonia; and the message of the Passover for the people for whom the Chronicles were written. The discussion of the message of the Passover in these instances is preceded by a discussion of the references to the Passover in the books of the Old Testament. It is concluded that the Passover only had meaning when linked to repentance and the service of God It served to remind the people of God’s great deeds in the past, such as the exodus from Egypt, and as such it pointed to the possibility of great deeds of deliverance in the future. The Passover had a positive meaning only for believers.
