This Jewish Christian Haggadah, the Hebrew word for “story,” is a tool used to fulfill the commandment of Exodus 13:8 which tells us that we are to tell our children about Passover because of what the Lord did for the Israelites and the liberation from Egypt. The tradition of telling this story while reclining with having four cups of wine and a meal is goes back to the 2nd century BCE. With striking resemblances of the seder as it is presented in the Mishnah, the story of the Last Supper of Jesus with the disciples is actually a description of a Passover seder based upon early rabbinic documents and a present comparison of these traditions with the texts of the Gospels.

About the Author
Spending several years in a Lubavitch Yeshiva in Ukraine, Alexander became very anti-Christian. However, deep study of the prophecies in the biblical book of Daniel led him to question his negative position. Reading about the death of the Messiah in Daniel 9 challenged Sasha's thinking and understanding that he had adopted in the Yeshiva. He was very disappointed when he learned, that in 1990, many Lubavitch Hasidic Jews began to consider their Rebbe, R. Menahen Mendel Schneerson, as the Messiah. This lead him to re-examine his own beliefs, leading him to recognize Jesus of Nazareth as the One in whom the messianic prophecies of the Hebrew Bible were fulfilled.
