The Bread of Affliction

In this week’s teaching Ross focuses on the ancient festival of Unleavened Bread by covering the biblical texts related to what the Hebrew Bible calls chag hamatzoth. He works through the relevant passages carefully, discussing the details about the seven days associated with the festival. He points out that this ancient festival is related to the great salvation of the children of Israel from Egypt, and shows how the festival became associated with joy, but then turns his attention to another aspect of these holy days. The unleavened bread is described in Deuteronomy as the bread of affliction. Why would a season of joy, a time set apart to remember salvation, redemption, and deliverance be associated with bread of affliction? This class seeks to answer that question. The answer might surprise you. You will not want to miss this teaching on the Bread of Affliction and the coming redemption.
