Aliens and Unclean Share Passover Meal

Numbers 9:9-14  

Any alien residing among you who wishes to keep the Passover to the Lord shall do so according to the statute of the Passover and according to its regulation; you shall have one statute for both the resident alien and the native. Numbers 9:14 NRSV

The call to celebrate the Passover made room for everyone. God’s table is still a welcome table no matter our birthplace or origins.
