When Is the Biblical Passover?
Why is there so much confusion about the proper time to observe the Passover? Learn what the Bible and history reveal about this important question. More
For more than 2000 years, dating back to pre-Christian times, there has been confusion and controversy about when the Passover should be observed. Various sects among the Jews at the time of Christ had diverse opinions on the proper time to observe the Passover. Competent historians recognize that the Christian Church in the New Testament era observed the Passover, but when? Today there are varying opinions, even among the tens of thousands of Christians who continue to observe the Passover annually. This question also affects the understanding of the time of Christ's crucifixion. Was he crucified on the fourteenth, or the fifteenth of the first month of the sacred (Hebrew) calendar?
Rod Reynolds in When Is the Biblical Passover? examines the Scriptural and historical evidence to arrive at a clear understanding of the answer to the question. The correct answer also untangles long-standing misunderstanding of questions related to the timing of Christ's crucifixion as well.
