When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
The Messiah was a committed Torah observant Jew. Like his brothers and sisters in the flesh, He did travel up to Jerusalem to partake in the great Jewish festivals. One of them was the Jewish passover, the celebration of the day in Egypt when God of Israel ordered the destruction Angel to pass over Jewish houses who had applied the blood of the lamb. Soon Jesus was going to be sacrificed as God´s perfect Passover lamb, so that those who believe in Him shall not be destroyed by God`s coming wrath as a punishment for sin.
