Christian Studies

First Reader



The purpose of this paper is to briefly examine the tradition of the Passover in light of its origins, historicization and historical development, and its relevance to the Christology expressed in the New Testament gospels. It is necessary to realize from the beginning that in some cases the traditions being dealt with are ancient, and therefore there is scant concrete evidence with which to deal. However, I feel that one can deal with what evidence there is available and realize that his conclusions must be somewhat tentative.
