Vine of David Haggadah
The Vine of David Haggadah is a new translation of the traditional Haggadah, containing the complete traditional Seder in both English and Hebrew. This Haggadah sets a new standard both in terms of production quality, content, and presentation. It balances the best of both traditional and messianic worlds by respecting the customs and history of Israel, taking seriously the explicit commandment in the Torah to teach our children about the redemption from Egypt and the commandment of the Master to keep the festival in remembrance of him.
The Haggadah recounts through prayer, song, and ritual the extraordinary story of Exodus when Moses led the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt to wander the desert for forty years before reaching the Promised Land.
A Messianic Jewish Passover Seder
A Haggadah is a book used to conduct a Passover Seder meal – a time of remembering and retelling how God delivered Israel from bondage in Egypt. For believers in Yeshua (Jesus), however, a Passover celebration is about so much more, for this past deliverance was pointing to a far greater deliverance that God alone could provide.
Throughout the traditional Seder text, Messianic passages have been seamlessly interwoven to create a truly authentic feeling of Messianic Haggadah.
Excerpt from Introduction:
"Where then, does the remembrance of the Messiah fit in the Seder? While we have an obligation to fulfill, the exact procedure is not etched in stone. In a sense, it would be presumptuous for individuals or organizations to "canonize" their own formula for such a purpose. And yet, it is a valid concern that without such a formal addition, we may be tempted to neglect our responsibility as disciples. In this Messianic Jewish Haggadah, we have attempted a balanced approach. As much as possible, we derived the additions that we felt necessary from historical and Scriptural sources. We have clearly delineated our messianic supplements with a graphic decoration appearing along the side of the paragraph. During the Seder, one should feel free to adapt, transpose, skip, or elaborate upon the selections we included, being sensitive to the needs and interests of the participants.
Ultimately, what makes a Seder truly Messianic is not the Haggadah that you use but the people who are present, the memory of our Master on our lips, and the vibrant hope to see him again quickly and in our days."
