Heb 11:28 Through faith he kept the passover. See Ex 12:3-30. He kept it because God commanded, and he believed all God promised. And the sprinkling of blood. The blood of the lamb sprinkled on the door posts. He not only believed that this would protect Israel's first born, but his faith went beyond the type to the Lamb of God.
