Open Letter to the Christian Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses (Part 2)
Admitting, for a moment, that there would be a difference between these statements and the celebration of the memorial, then one must refer to its model, the celebration of the Passover (“Christ our Passover lamb has been sacrificed” 1 Corinthians 5:7 ; Hebrews 10:1). Who was to celebrate Passover? Only the circumcised (Exodus 12:48). Exodus 12:48, shows that even the foreigner could participate in the Passover, provided they were circumcised. Participation in the Passover was not optional for the foreigner (see verse 49): “And if a foreign resident is residing with you, he should also prepare the Passover sacrifice to Jehovah. He should do so according to the statute of the Passover and its set procedure. There should exist one statute for you, both for the foreign resident and for the native of the land” (Numbers 9:14). “You who are of the congregation and the foreigner who is residing with you will have one statute. It will be a lasting statute for all your generations. The foreign resident should be the same as you before Jehovah” (Numbers 15:15) . Participation in the Passover was a vital obligation, and Jehovah God, in connection with this celebration, made no distinction between Israelites and foreigners.
Why do we insist on the fact that the foreigner was under an obligation to celebrate the Passover? Because the main argument of those who forbid the participation in the emblems, to faithful Christians who have the earthly hope, is that they are not part of the New Covenant, and also they are not even part of the spiritual Israel. Even on this ground, according to the model of the Passover, the non-Israelite could celebrate the Passover… What is the spiritual meaning of the circumcision? Obedience to God (Deuteronomy 10:16; Romans 2:25–29). The spiritual uncircumcision represents disobedience to God and Christ (Acts 7:51–53). The answer is detailed below.
