Great article! One note, Mr. Walker:

President Obama has held a Seder ever since his election, as well as Easter.

Really enjoyed your article and the comparisons of symbols and fulfillment of Jesus as Passover Lamb for Christians.

One question about your statement that Christians believe that Jesus was sacrificed for the sins of mankind "in a Jerusalem garden called Gethsemane and on the cross of crucifixion". Outside of Mormons, I am not aware of any denominations who attach the suffering in the garden to His sacrifice on the cross. Neither would that analogy apply to the Passover Lamb. No N.T. passages or writers refer to this concept. Can you tell me where this statement comes from?

Thank you!
