As so many things in the Old Testament pointed to events yet to come, the Jewish Passover and the story of the Israelites’ deliverance from oppression provide the background for the Easter story.
It is no coincidence that the culmination of Jesus’ redemptive work took place at Easter. Today we can clearly see its symbolism: God’s purpose was to redeem us and bring us closer to Him, and to free us – in this life and the next.
Just as Jesus’ sacrifice during Easter meant much more than the lambs sacrificed before the exodus, the freedom He offers through the events of Easter is also so much greater.
CUM Books, which was founded in 1939 and has been part of South Africans’ spiritual journey for more than 80 years, wanted to treat five Maroela readers this Easter with an online gift voucher worth R1 000 to spend at www.cumbooks.co.za to use.
Congratulations to Brenda Rheeder from Sasolburg, Sharon Fortuin from Stellenbosch, Alicia Jordaan from Tzaneen, Cobi Bezuidenhout from Potchefstroom and Hennie Randall from Worcester who each received a gift voucher of R1 000 from CUM Books.
