To Eat the Passover Is to Eat From the Tree of Life
Humanity’s greatest problem is death, and the Bible provides a solution: eternal life. To give us this solution, Jesus hid the solution from the creation in a parable (Mt 13:34–35).
In the Garden of Eden, God gave a command to Adam and Eve (Ge 2:16), but they broke it (Ge 3). As a result, they came to die. For them to live eternally, they had to eat from the tree of life. However, due to their disobedience, God blocked their access, making it clear that only God can allow them to eat from it again and regain eternal life.
“And the LORD God said, ‘The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.’
...After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.”
The Garden of Eden parable mirrors our story—to live forever, we must eat from the tree of life, and only God, who blocked the way in Eden, can reveal its reality, giving us eternal life. This is why Christ came to this Earth (Jn 10:10).
Since eating Christ’s flesh and drinking His blood allows us to have eternal life, we can understand that Jesus is the reality to the tree of life. Then, there must be a way we can eat His flesh and drink His blood.
Jesus established the Passover as the way to eat His flesh and drink His blood; in other words, the way to eat from the tree of life. Since Jesus opened the way to the tree of life, He is God who has given us eternal life.
Unfortunately, the New Covenant Passover that Jesus established was abolished in A.D. 325 at the Council of Nicaea. From that time, the way to the tree of life was lost once again and only God and restore the way. That’s why the Bible prophecies that Christ has to come a second time.
In fulfillment of this prophecy, Christ Ahnsahnghong restored the New Covenant Passover, reopening the way to the tree of life.
