    Exodus 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.

    8 days are given.
    7 days of unleavened bread are numbered.
    14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20.
    We know the feast of unleavened bread to be the 15th - 21st.
    Leviticus 23:5-8.
    Numbers 28:16-25.
    Deuteronomy 16:8.

    Mark 14:12, And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?

    Since, here we have unleavened bread to be eaten on the Fourteenth:
    That makes 8 days, total, when unleavened bread was to be eaten:
    The 14, then the 15th through to the 21st.

    The 14th to the 21st = 8 days.

    Right, and yet we just saw where unleavened bread was to be eaten
    on the 14th, prior to the 7-day period of the 15th to the 21st.

    Reference 15th to the 21st:
    "Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: (the 15th to the 20th)
    and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God:
    thou shalt do no work therein," (The 21st).

    So, since the 14th is The LORD'S Passover:
    "In the fourteenth day of the first month at even
    is the LORD's Passover."


    And again, we see the 14th is The LORD'S Passover:

    "And in the fourteenth day of the first month

    is the Passover of the LORD."

    Would it mess things up for you to know Mark 14:12
    is talking about the 14th as being The Passover:
    AND that the 14th is not only the Passover, as Mark 14:12 says,
    "when they killed the Passover", but that this day of the 14th
    is also included in the overall 8 days of 'unleavened bread'
    that we just saw (the 14th to the 21st) there,

    AND THEN HERE, when it says in Mark 14:12
    that THIS PASSOVER DAY is "the first day of unleavened bread"uh
    THAT THIS "FIRST DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD" IN MARK 14:12
    IS NOT THE 15TH; which means that:

    1.) The whole 8 days are now called the days of "Unleavened Bread",
    by the time we arrive here in The New Testament Era,

    2.) As well as the whole 8 days is sometimes referred to as "The Passover".

    Isn't that what Luke 22:1 says?

    "Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh,
    which is called the Passover."

    That is what it says.

    While this "feast of the Passover" IS talking about the one on the 15th,
    Jesus had His Last Supper Passover meal the evening before, on the 14th.

    1 Now before
    the feast of the passover,
    when Jesus knew that his hour was come
    that he should depart out of this world unto the Father,
    having loved his own which were in the world,
    he loved them unto the end.


    2 And supper being ended (the evening of Mark 14:12, on the 14th),
    the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot,
    Simon's son, to betray him;


    3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands,
    and that he was come from God, and went to God;

    4 He riseth from
    supper (again, on the evening of Mark 14:12,
    on the 14th and 24 hours
    before the Phariceses' Passover meal on the 15th
    and on the 14th evening prior to Jesus' crucifixion
    in the daylight of the following day, still the Jewish day of the 14th)

    and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

    This would make:


    And:
    As being on the 14th and 24 hours
    prior to the main Passover meal the 15th

    and it makes:
    Just 2 or 3 hours between Mark 14:12, on the very beginning of the 14th,
    to 16, an hour or two later;

    16 "And His disciples went forth, and came into the city,
    and found as He had said unto them:
    and they made ready the Passover."


    AND then by that same evening, in a couple of more hours,
    still on the evening of the 14th
    prior to Jesus' arrests afterward through the night
    and His death the next day still on the 14th, in its daytime hours:

    we have Mark 14:17 & 18;

    17 "And in the evening He cometh with the twelve.
    18 "And as they sat and did eat,..."

    No. 7 days. The evening of the 8th day marked the end of the 7 days. See Deuteronomy 16:8 has 6 days.

    You can say;
    P. 37, but you also say;
    because you wanted to.

    You have the 8 days right there. They are right there.


    Same with, "Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread:
    and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God:
    thou shalt do no work therein."

    The, "Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread:"
    doesn't EXCLUDE the seventh day, that is right there, again,
    in the next few words,
    "and on the seventh day
    shall be a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God"...

    Neither does the
    "six days", plus "the seventh day"
    EXCLUDE The Passover, on the 14th,
    from being an additional day of unleavened bread,
    which is, at times, INCLUDED, to make a total of 8 days,

    since
    The Passover and The Feast of Unleavened Bread
    were all involving feast days, occurring back to back, one after the other.


    I guess, I'll take that as a "yes", it messed things up for you
    and interpreted Mark 14:12 in a very different, new light,
    which makes a significant and very important change and adjustment,
    to how we must then see every other related scripture,
    in The Crucifixion Week scenario.

    You simply do not understand what I explained. Explaining it again, I do not see how it will correct your wrong view.
    Deuteronomy 16:8 says 6 days. Many do not correctly understand it too.
