#PesachPrep, T minus 16 Days: Exodus 13:8 – Good to the last drop.

ח וְהִגַּדְתָּ לְבִנְךָ, בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא לֵאמֹר: בַּעֲבוּר זֶה, עָשָׂה יְהוָה לִי, בְּצֵאתִי, מִמִּצְרָיִם.
8 And thou shalt tell thy son in that day, saying: It is because of that which the LORD did for me when I came forth out of Egypt.

A couple of years ago, we kept the people at our Seder on their toes by having a running contest on how often this one verse is mentioned and used during the Seder.
Here is the quiz:
How is this possuk cited?
…as instruction for the wicked son (for me and not for him…he would not have been redeemed.)
What does it say to the father of the son who doesn’t know how to ask?
How do two terms help us clarify the date and time and context of the Mitzvah.
And how, towards the end of Maggid, does it tell us about the sense of personalization we are supposed to adopt in viewing the Exodus?
