Q. 52. What did those catechizing bearded Elders then reply? Q. 52. They said: "It is the sacrifice of the Lord’s Passover who passed over the houses of the sons of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians but delivered our homes."
Q. 53. And only the mature adult males then sacrificed, but not the women and children? Q. 53. That is so – from the time of Adam right down to the time of Moses and beyond.
Q. 54. Doesn’t the word "first-born" in Exodus 12:29 doesn’t mean babies ate the Passover? Q. 54. No; in Exodus 12:29 the firstborn already sat on Pharaoh’s throne or in his dungeon.
