Lechem Oni / Matzah

Matzah

 

Matzah is the paradox
at the heart of Passover.

At the center of our Passover feast,
this poor bread, lechem oni, scatters crumbs everywhere.

We place it among mounds of food:
poverty in the midst of plenty.
Now who among us has seen that?

Surely God called us out of Egypt
For something better.

    5 Wendy|May 27, 2009 Some kind of daily application/lifestyle book would be great…covering tihngs like prayer, praise, worship, as well as understanding the symbolism we sadly miss, due to our lack of context. I would love a series of short studies as well. I use “Listening to the Language of the Bible” as a devotional in my classes (I’m a college professor), and my students love it. They are getting a fresh look at the Bible in a way they have never experienced. The lessons are short enough to fit into the beginning of class, but meaty enough for us all to take something of value.Thanks for all you do. I love your heart and your contribution to helping believers better understand their faith.
