Passover thoughts: Why Search for the Afikoman?

After the meal is finished, all the children begin searching for that special hidden matzah.

Remember that middle matzah called the afikomen that represents the Lord? Its unleavened (sinless), striped, pierced, broken, wrapped in linen and Hidden.

The children searched for it and the one who finds it, brings it out of hiding or “resurrects” it and presents it to the father. The father rewards the child who finds it with a few dollars. To me, this is a vivid illustration of the death of Jesus, his burial, his resurrection and the reward of ETERNAL LIFE that God gives each one of us that finds the hidden Bread Of Life.
