April 3: Passover – The Bitter Herbs

– The Bitter Herbs

God commanded that as we eat the Passover Lamb, we also eat bitter herbs to remind us of the bitterness of our slavery.  Later in the Passover service, we make a sandwich of the bitter herbs and a sweet apple/nut mixture to remind us of the sweetness of our deliverance.

Exodus 12:8

Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

Yeshua used this ritual of dipping bread into the bitter herbs to identify Judas as His betrayer. (John 13:18-30)


A bitter herb root, “Maror” in Hebrew. Jesus used the dipping of unleavened bread into the maror to identify Judas as the Betrayer.



To understand how Yeshua identified the betrayer, use (or read) “Celebrate Passover, Three Tables Haggadah.” 


Three Tables Passover Haggadah takes you from the table to Moses, to the table of Yeshua and finally to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb
