The book of Daniel is not primarily about prophecies and timelines, but to show how the people of God's Kingdom can live faithfully in a world ruled by man's kingdoms. How can we be faithful citizens of God's kingdom while living in exile?
The night Jesus was betrayed, arrested, and taken away to his death, he shared one last meal with his friends. This wasn’t just any meal. This was the Passover meal; a meal which held great significance for the deliverance of God’s people. The bread, the wine, and the lamb were all signposts back to when God had saved them from slavery to Egypt, and signposts pointing them forward to when He would save them again from their slavery to sin. Jesus became the bread, the wine, and the Lamb at this meal, and he invites us all now to sit at the table and feast with him.
