Keeping Passover, Abib 14th
Passover is an appointment time of the LORD God to celebrate and commemerate his great power and might in delivering the children of Israel out of the house of bondage, out of the land of Egypt. It is celebrated on Abib 14th.
When is Passover?
The appointed time for passover is on Abib 14th, in the evening. The month Abib is the first month of God's year and is around spring equinox, often some time in March or April on the Gregorian calendar.
Exodus 12:3 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: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: 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.
Numbers 9:2 Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season. In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it. And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover. And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.
Unleavened Bread Not to be Eaten from Abib 14th to 21st
Exo 12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.
Jesus Christ, Our Passover Lamb
Jesus Christ celebrated Passover with his disciples. Then he went to the garden with Peter, James and John. He was then betrayed by Judas. He was then condemned by the priests and denied by Peter. Passover morning (after night had passed), he was tried by Potius Pilate. Jesus Christ was scourged and then crucified and died around the 9th hour (what we would call 3 PM).
Passover is a preparation day. After Jesus Christ was crucified, then Joseph of Arimethea received the body from Pontius Pilate and put it in his own new tomb.
Passover was celebrated on the evening or the 14th day of Abib by the Jews, on which they crucified our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
