Janice Kreider spoke on the story of the Passover (Exodus 11-12), one of the most important Jewish festivals. The roasted meat recalled the nomadic tradition of culling of a flock, the bread symbolized the agricultural background (and the throwing out of the yeast recalled the need to start new batches). Janice emphasized the theme of deliverance and what it may have meant to the Israelites. In the Old Testament, salvation (Perry Yoder) has similar connotations, referring to liberation from distress, famine, oppression, and providing justice for those in bondage. God led at least some people away from an unjust society so they could form a new society in which shalom was at least theoretically more likely to be found. Can Christians be in the forefront delivering people from their bondage and helping them find shalom and justice? [JEK]
