THE FEAST OF PASSOVER WEEK
And the day of the Unleavened Bread came, on which the Passover
must be killed. Luke 22:7 KJ3
The duration of the Feast of Passover was well defined. This is important because some
contend that the Jews used to count part of day as a day. If they did, it was not possible during
the Feast of Passover because Moses has specified when the Feast was to start and when it
was to end.
(17) And you shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. For in this same day I have
brought your armies out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall keep this day in your
generations by a law forever. (18) In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the
month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the twenty-first day of
the month at evening. (19) Seven days there shall be no leaven found in your
houses. For whoever eats that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the
congregation of Israel, among the aliens and among the natives of the land. Exodus
(5) In the fourteenth day of the first month, between the evenings, is Jehovah's
Passover, (6) and on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened
Bread to Jehovah. You must eat unleavened bread seven days. Leviticus 23:5-6 MKJV
You have read the delineation of the Passover week. It was to last 7 days. The 7 days were
counted from the 14th to the 21st. The days are not 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21. That
would have been counted for 8 days, if part of a day was to be considered a day like in 14, 15,
16. Some pundits of the Bible consider 14, 15, 16 to be 3 days but according to Exodus 12: 18,
the days 14, 15, 16 count as 2 days.
Note also that the week is consistent to the standard ‘there was an evening and there was a
morning’ of the book of Genesis, as we read that the week of Passover or of unleavened was
to be started on the evening and to end on an evening.
Therefore, when we read Luke 22: 7, we should understand that the statement was made on
the 13th going to the evening of the 14th when the Passover was to be killed.
When the evening of the 14th came, Jesus ate the last Passover with the Disciples.
And when the hour came, He and the twelve apostles with Him reclined. (15)
And He said to them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you
before I suffer. (16) For I say to you, I will not any more eat of it until it is
fulfilled in the kingdom of God. Luke 22:14-16 MKJV
And going out, He went to the Mount of Olives, according to His custom, and His
disciples also followed Him. (Luke 22:39 EMTV)
As the narrative goes, in the evening, after they finished eating, to fulfill the Scriptures [i. e. to
be ‘killed between the evenings’ Leviticus 23:5], Jesus and the Eleven went to Mount Olives,
where Jesus was arrested on the night of the 14th.
THE DATE OF THE
KILLING OF THE
Speak ye unto all the congregation of
Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this
month they shall take to them every
man a lamb, according to the house
of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
Exodus 12:3 KJV
(5) Your lamb shall be without
blemish, a male of the first year: ye
shall take it out from the sheep, or
from the goats: (6) And ye shall keep
it up until the fourteenth day of the
same month: and the whole assembly
of the congregation of Israel shall kill
it in the evening. Exodus 12:5-6 KJV
Note that ‘evening’ is not ‘darkness’,
since ‘darkness’ is ‘night’ by the
definition of the Bible (Genesis 1:5).
And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. Mark 7:7 EMTV
WHERE CAN WE FIND OUT ALL ABOUT JESUS?
You search the Scriptures, for you think in them you have everlasting life.
And they are the ones witnessing concerning Me. John 5:39 LITV. Luke 24:44
The only feast in the NT
(23) For I received of the Lord that which also I
delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus in the
night in which he was betrayed took bread;
(24) and when he had given thanks, he brake
it, and said, This is my body, which is for you:
this do in remembrance of me. (25) In like
manner also the cup, after supper, saying, This
cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do,
as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
(26) For as often as ye eat this bread, and
drink the cup, ye proclaim the Lord's death till
he come. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 ASV
