Passover (renamed “Easter” by Christianity) is central to the Christian faith. It reminds Christians that our redemption did not begin with the cross. It began in the Garden of Eden and took thousands of years to complete. God chose the Jews to introduce Jesus and invited us into His story of redemption. Their story is our story because of Jesus. The words of God to Moses restated the promise He gave Abraham. Abraham did not see its fulfillment but looked through time and believed what God told him. Four centuries later, God appointed Moses to lead Abraham's family out of Egyptian slavery.

Many traditional Jews will stay up all night on the first night of Shavuot to study Torah. Many read Ezekiel, chapter one. One interpretation of Ezekiel’s wheel is that God’s Word (the static center wheel) is carried forward worldwide through His people moving in unity by the Spirit of God.
