Passover - (Pesach)

Tomorrow (April 2nd) at sundown is the beginning of Passover, lasting until sundown on Tuesday, (April 3rd). After Passover (Pesach) begins the Feast of Unleavened Bread lasting seven days.

I've found a wonderful article on First Fruits of Zion regarding these two Feasts of the Lord (often referred to collectively as Passover in our modern times). Most articles on this site require membership, however you can join for free to receive emails and to access a treasure of resources. I recommend membership to anyone wanting to learn more about the Lord and Christianity's Jewish roots.

The article I found is Passover - Remembering Our Redemption. It does require membership to read the entire article, however it takes only a few moments to join and is definitely worth it! I recommend taking the time to read this in honor of this upcoming Feast.

Hi. I visited your blog today and it seems that we may have some shared interest in pursuing our Hebrew roots. I would love to hear your story.

My wall calendar at home says Passover is April 10...I am so confused...I see both dates online - April 2 and April 10 are listed for you have any insight???

Very weird. My calendar and most I've seen show April 3rd as Passover. This would make sense. The Jewish day started at sundown so officially Passover started on the 2nd at sundown and goes through today at sundown.

As far as the 10th, the only I can think of is that the Feasts of Unleavened Bread starts at Passover and goes for seven days. If you are considering Passover as the 3rd of April, then the 10th would be the end of that Feast.

I'll have to look into that more to see why the 10th would be listed. I'll let you know if I figure anything out about it.
