Feast of Unleavened Bread
The Feast of Unleavened Bread
When God redeemed His children, He instructed them to take hold of their freedom quickly— so quickly that the yeast in the bread they were making didn’t have time to get to work. To commemorate the fact that God did not abandon His people to the graves of Egypt, nor did He allow them to wallow and decay in slavery, He instituted the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
This second Feast in the Jewish calendar begins the day after the Feast of Passover.
