Christ our Passover

“Jesus was led forth like a lamb; he was slaughtered like a sheep. He ransomed us from our servitude to the world, as he had ransomed Israel from the land of Egypt; he freed us from our slavery to the devil, as he had freed Israel from the hand of Pharaoh. Jesus sealed our souls with his own Spirit, and the members of our body with his own blood.” -- Melito of Sardis
