Passover Lamb

Passover LambExodus 12:3-4 tells us about the Tribal household, "Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household." "If any Tribal Exodus Household is too small for a whole lamb, they must share one with their nearest neighbor, having taken into account the number of people there are. You are to determine the amount of lamb needed in accordance with what each person will eat."

An Open Passover

The Passover is to be open to all who desire it as in Exodus 12.48, "An alien living among you who wants to celebrate the Lord's Passover must have all the males in his Tribal Exodus Household circumcised, then the alien may take part like one born in the land. No uncircumcised male alien may eat of it." Sabbath observance is commanded in Exodus 23.12, "Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest and the slave born in your Tribal Exodus Household, and the alien as well, may be refreshed." What role did circumcision have in the Tribal Exodus Household?
How important was loyalty in the Tribal Exodus Household?
