God’s Protest Against Unrighteousness
This is the significance of the Passover for the Israelite. But it has a message also for the conscience and the heart of all mankind…. God’s protest against unrighteousness, whether individual or national. Wrong, it declares, may triumph for a time, but even though it be perpetrated by the strong on the weak, it will meet with its inevitable retribution at last…. This is a truth which mankind has still to lay to heart even in these days. The world is thousands of years older than it was when the first Passover was celebrated; but the lessons taught by the ancient Deliverance retain their original force.
