PASSOVER: Should we put the blood on the Doorpost now?

Home » PASSOVER: Should we put the blood on the Doorpost now?


Don't Forget to

This picture is a widely known picture about our Redemption from Egypt and the great meaning of what the blood represents. But, should we now put the blood on the doorpost? That is the question that will be address in this teaching. Not to bring controversy or division but to look at the Ancient Near Eastern context to this beloved time of year for us believers in Messiah Yeshua our Redeemer.
I pray that the content of this teaching will help us get a better understanding about what to do during the time of Redemption. Question? Do you know? what is the difference between Roasting the meat vs Boiling the meat in the ancient near east? Did you know where YHVH said to kill the lamb and by whom? These and many more questions will be answered during this hour of the teaching Passover in the Context of the Ancient Near East.

I am a teacher of Scriptures, Torah follower, and believer in Messiah Yeshua. I have been given the opportunity to share the Word of God with many believers around the world. My work as a servant of the Most High God has allowed me to be a voice to spread the good news of the New Testament, unveiling its truth through context and the obedience to the Almighty through his Torah.

  1. Rico, it is very interesting that you have this teaching and now I know more about Pesach! Now I did a seder at our home and I WOULD NOT even do lamb…I did a beef brisket in the oven (roasted) as I believe we R still in Egypt/desert so to speak and we R trying to figure out Torah and walk it out! I also did Matzah and horseradish as I read in Exodus 12 that is all that is needed on the plate… not the egg, lamb shank etc. Now I a have a brother in Yah, who did a Lamb, and blood on the doorpost and another brother that was really concerned for him. I had said to my one friend it is my 1 passion of my faimly to be apart of the seder as I am going to stand Up and lead my faimly as Kohan of my home!!! As far as my other Brother that wanted to do a lamb I had the thought “it’s probably not the right thing to do” Torah is as U have pointed out is very clear on who is to do this services and last I checked their is no Temple/Tabernacle so why do it?…I did not tell him what to do in NOT having all the information that I now have and will share with Him!!!! And my other friend he has gone the other way is that they did Pesach a week earlier and they did not have a Seder as it was just a meal and fellowship… I suppose like an Oneg. I really think as we go thru this desert Abba is really putting us to the test and slowly but surely taking out the tares and seeing who is the WHEAT! Dueteronomy 4 was one of the first passages that our congergational leader pointed out to me and 2 years later it is so TRUE!!!

    Where do you recommend that I get more info on a proper seder or we allright in doing something like we are doing today?

    Thank You and Shalom!

  2. This should also be true for tithes and offerings, as they were also to be brought to the legal place. You’ll notice in NT that gradually there is not talk of tithes, as the temple was destroyed, but they as for generous donantions for the teacher. You’ll notice in the 7 year agricultural pattern, the 3rd yr and 6th yr; there is a double tithe, in the 7th year land rest no sowing or reaping therefore no tithe; howmany teachers preachers told you to not tithe on the 7th year?

  3. To clarify, we should NOT be eating a lamb and calling it the Passover Seder as it was not slaughtered by a Kohen or Levite in Jerusalem? Thanks.

  4. At approximately 32-33 minutes, you read from Lev. 17. I agree that the Temple is the only place to bring a sacrifice, but the passage is saying that EVERY animal kosher for sacrifice MUST be slaughtered at the door of the Mishkan. Every barbecue becomes a peace-offering. If that still applies today then we shouldn’t be eating any animal that is acceptable for sacrifice. Deut. 12 deals with this, saying (in paraphrase) any offering you must bring to the place where the Holy One, blessed be He, places His name. But if you want to eat meat, go ahead and eat meat in your home. I hope that I know you well enough to clarify that for you; if this isn’t your opinion please clarify.


  5. Very good and needed teaching. While on my 2 1/2 years studying Torah (mainly with WIT) I have felt the need to dig deeper into Pesach and Unleavened Bread. My first Seder was in 2015, not knowing anything about it; my second was last week 4/10/2017 and I have gained more understanding of it to the point that I bought Matzos and have been eating it this week. Is one step higher in obedience and observance. I thank Yah for using you to point out these concepts in a humble way. Shabbat Shalom querido hermano!!!

  6. Rico, thank you for recently re-posting this older video. It’s very helpful for those who are still newer and coming into the Hebrew Roots understanding and have not studied this aspect yet. Additionally helpful were the comments especially from Woody (etymological info), yours and Victors comments which help to clarify what was spoken in the video. Lots of aspects to study here. You have motivated me to be a good Berean- to understand what HE requires. Thank you for sharing from your studies as we all “work out our salvation” together!

    1. If you have time to respond, can you possibly shed some light on the “Farmboy” comment? I also have the same questions, since we are addressing the terms of what YHVH states is acceptable and I’d like to know if/where this has been addressed before so I can study it out further. Thank you!!

  7. With this understanding of the Pasach, does it just pertain to the lamb/goat offering itself? Is there anything scripturally that restricts us in “the nations” from keeping the rest of the feast of Unleavened Bread (i.e. clearing our houses of yeast, eating unleavened bread for those 7 days, and meeting for the set-apart gatherings on the first and last Sabbath days)?

  8. How cool to look at the difference between how the Passover lamb was to be prepared at the time of the Exodus and how it was to be prepared when the people came into the land. Boiling (the French call it “braising”) does take longer to prepare. Think “pot roast” verses “barbeque”. The truth is indeed in the details!

  9. Shalom Rico,

    Such an excellent teaching. Thank you so much!! I am forever learning from you,
    Ryan, & Daniel.

    Have you done a teaching on how we are to keep Shabbat? If not, would you consider
    one? I live waaaay out, have no congregation to attend, and have no Hebrew Roots
    people that I know of. Thank you very much in considering my request. Shalom!!

  10. Shalom Rico. Excellent teaching. I have a question. When you referenced Judges 6 where Gideon brought the passover broth and unleavened bread to the angel, do you suppose he first went to the Mishkan and slaughtered it in front of a priest? The surrounding passages would seem to indicate he was freelancing the whole episode. For example, in verse 26 he builds an altar and sacrifices a bull (at the angels behest), both should be outside the scope of his jurisdiction. Manowah in Judges 13 would seem to be another free agent. He makes sacrifices (possibly passover) outside of the Mishkan, not to mention Elijah on Mount Carmen. I apologize if you have previously addressed this issue and I missed it. Thanks.
