The evidence is not simple. By the first (or prior) day, Mark means the day on which the lambs were sacrificed, which precedes sunset when Passover began. Perhaps Matthew means the same; Luke has the same qualifier: when they immolate the pasch. The Synoptics do not mention the lamb or bitter herbs, etc., but do mention the release of a prisoner Barabbas for Passover (to eat it), and Simon of Cyrene coming in from the fields at midday (when work ended early for lamb sacrifices to begin), and the quote Eli Eli was taken as calling Elijah (who is to return at Passover). The early Christians took it for 14 Nisan, the “eve” of Passover.
Rabbi, I read your article with great interest. I would like to address something you said and please know I have only the deepest respect for Judaism. I believe what the Bible says and that the Jewish people are G-ds chosen people yesterday, today and always. I wouldn’t ever want to usurp anyone else’s ritual. But I believe every word the Bible says old and new testament. The Passover ritual is beautiful and meaningful to me on so many levels. My great grandfather came from a family of many rabbis but I was raised a Christian. To put this as simply as I can, If my Savior is Jewish and He practiced the Jewish faith it is part of me and I want to know all that I can about how He led His life Thank you for hearing me.
