The History Behind The Easter Lamb and Egyptian Plagues

The traditional Easter meal is lamb meat if you're wondering what it is. Easter cuisine generally includes lamb. The term "Lamb of God" is used by Christians to allude to Jesus, even though early Passover ceremonies also gave rise to the Easter lamb. According to the biblical narrative of Exodus, the Egyptian populace experienced a number of devastating plagues, such as the demise of all firstborn boys.

In order for God to "pass over" Jewish believers' homes, they smeared the doorposts of their dwellings with the blood of lambs that had been killed. The practice of eating lamb during Easter was carried on by Jews who became Christians. Lamb was traditionally one of the very first fresh foods to be presented after such a long winter when there were no cattle to kill.

The chronological order of the plagues during the Egyptian Exodus

God's chosen people, the Israelites, were living as slaves in Egypt during the period of the plagues. They cried out to God to deliver them from their condition since they were going through a lot of anguish. A man named Moses was chosen by God to bring the Israelites out of Egypt after He heeded their pleas.

The Israelites were initially imprisoned by the Pharaoh, who was asked to free them by Moses. God brought the 10 plagues as punishment for Pharaoh's defiance. In order to get Pharaoh to act and free the Israelites from slavery, the plagues were sent.

The following is a list of the first 10 Egyptian plagues in chronological order:

  • Blood
  • Frog
  • Lice or gnats
  • Flies
  • Livestock
  • Boils
  • Hail
  • Locust
  • Darkness
  • Death of firstborn


The beginning of the plague of the firstborn

Then Moses spoke, "Thus says the Lord: "About midnight, I will walk forth into the middle of Egypt; The firstborn of the pharaoh who is seated on his throne, all the way down to the eldest of the female servant who works behind the hand mill, as well as every firstborn animal in the country of Egypt, will all perish.

When it happens, there will be a loud cry heard throughout the entire country of Egypt that has never been heard before and will never be heard again. To let you realize that the Lord does differentiate between the Egyptians and Israel, however, no dog is permitted to move its tongue toward any of the children of Israel, whether against a human or a canine” (Exodus 11:4-7).

As stated by Moses, the firstborn children of Egypt were all killed at midnight. Among them was the first son of Pharaohs. Entire Egypt was swelling drown in condolence for the death of the dear ones of the nation. Passover started to be used to describe this.

That evening, Pharaoh dispatched Moses and Aaron to the Israelites, telling them they may go from Israel at any time and carry the anger of God with them.

The Israelites left Egypt as soon as possible because they had been prepared for a quick escape.

Lilies, The Easter Flower

Christians use white Easter lilies as a typical adornment in churches and homes during the Easter season to represent Christ's purity. They represent the rebirth and faith of Christ's resurrection as they develop from underground bulbs to blooms. After being introduced to England in 1777, lilies, which are native to Japan, eventually made their way to the United States following World War I.

They eventually developed into the unofficial Easter flower throughout the country. You may find lots of bookmarks or cards for Easter greetings including this lovely flower on it.

Easter Egg Symbol

Despite being a religious event, Easter has numerous traditions that are probably derived from paganism, such as the use of Easter eggs. The egg, a 2,000-year-old representation of new life, has been connected to springtime paganism. Easter eggs are thought to symbolize Jesus' ascension from the grave and resurrection from Christianity.

According to several reports, the practice of decorating eggs for Easter has been practiced since at least the 13th century. Eggs used to be a banned meal during Lent, so people used to paint and adorn them to commemorate the closing of the period of repentance and fasting, and later consume them on Easter as a celebration, according to one interpretation of this tradition.

Fun facts: The First Egg to Eat

Talking about some eggs. around six million years ago. The first individuals to consume eggs harvested them from wild nests and consumed them uncooked. Whoever ate the first egg is unknown. Researchers do know that the earliest individuals to raise hens were those in Egypt and China.

Furthermore, it's thought that when Columbus sailed back to the New World in 1493, he brought hens with him. According to historians, the chickens that provide the eggs we consume today are descended from the flock Columbus brought with him.
