The Sprinkling

By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch the firstborn of Israel.
Hebrews 11:28

In Matthew 26, Jesus just had his last meal with his disciples. Instead of the nice Passover dinner to which they all looked forward, Jesus started saying crazy things about blood and his body being broken. In this radical departure from the ancient Passover ritual, it began to dawn on Jesus' followers that some really bad things were about to happen. Jesus was going to Jerusalem to die.
