    April, I appreciate your testimony; I am not of your Jewish belief, tho'; did you know that the Passover meals Jesus partook of were still in the O.T. dispensation? His New Testament didn't begin until He was glorified, Acts 1:9. Then - 10 days later, in the upper room in Jerusalem, He sent His Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. That's when JESUS church began (not the Roman Cath. ch. of 325a.d.)

    A part of celebrating and believing in jesus and his father and the holy spirit is to not only read his words but remeber the sabbath days,right now we are in passover and i eat UNLEAVENED bread,I am trying to be more aware of what I eat(pig)leavened bread symbolizes our desires and sins as fleshys,I do think we are to try and respect and honor the feast inwhich jesus partook in.its important2all.

    V. 63 - "It is the spirit ..."; Jesus is saying, we need the Holy Ghost (spirit) in us , just as He had in His body, so that the spirit can 'quicken' (convict with the life of the spirit) hearts of sinners to see their need of repentance. The body without the spirit - can do nothing for a sinner. Nor for the person witnessing without the spirit; it is the spirit that quickens.
