From right after His birth, throughout Jesus’ life people plotted to kill Him. No person was successful. The Jews were gathering in Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover when God protected the Jews who put blood from the Passover lamb on their doorpost. Every other household that did not have the blood on the doorpost experienced death of the firstborn son. God provided Jesus as a new Passover Lamb. Jesus came willingly and victoriously to shed His blood in death.
