What does the Lord's Table have to do with Easter?
1. Old Story
For 14 centuries the Passover had been pointing forward to the coming of Jesus, the Passover Lamb. Jesus ate the Passover, replaced it with His own supper, and then was Himself slain as the Passover Lamb.
Mark 14:12 And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?

- Object Lesson
His Death is the benefit, not the bread.
Dying and shedding of His blood is the benefit, not the juice.

- The Lamb of God slain for your sins is sufficient to satisfy the wrath of God.
