Ex 12:15 explains that on the first day..the 14th day we remove leaven from our houses. This is the
work that is commanded on this day:

  • 15 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread; on the very first day you shall remove
    leaven from your houses

First reference to Passover is in Ex 12; we are informed that there are two periods of 7 days that
we need to look at. The first is here in verse 18 and the command is to both remove leaven and
eat unleavened bread; the second set is down the page a little way but is referenced in Lev 23:2

  • Ex 12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day, in the evening, eat unleavened-bread,
    until the evening of day twenty one of the month.

Remove leaven: The first day which is the 14th of the month is when we nullify leaven from our
homes. Traditionally removing leaven became a family fun part of the feast. The children
searching the house for leaven which had been hidden by mum and dad. The expression spring
cleaning is associated with this activity. It is a command however by HaShem and as such needs
to be upheld. It was during the twilight hours or morning of the 14th..and thats a biblical morning
which comes after the start of the day the evening before, that Yeshua's unleavening began.
Symbolic of removing old leaven. He was without sin but was dealt like this on order for us to be
freed from sin. All that sin was upon him and this un leavening of sin from Yeshua for our
salvation is what might understood concerning his sacrifice. The 14th was a sacrifice offering.

Pesach is a Moed with eating and food as its main theme. The Torah teaches exactly this when
the people were redeemed from Egypt, they and all who choose the Torah through Torah study
and acceptance to re leaven their own hearts. This is an individual decision and purpose, our
each and everyones divine purpose in life, to seek the truth

Faith and trust in HaShem by upholding these appointed times is as the Torah indicates. The
sacrifice lamb was eaten " That same night " and is now the start of the 15th..unleavened bread
and the Exodus..The actual Passover when blood from the sacrificial lamb was daubed on the
doors of the homes that they were told to stay in that night.

  • Ex 12:8:They shall eat the flesh that same night; they shall eat it roasted over the fire, with
    unleavened bread and with bitter herbs.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread begins on the 15th for 7 days, the second period of seven days:
The exodus began also, and also the supper. Curiously food was commanded to eat that night,
and to remain indoors whilst the firstborn of Egypt were all killed, largely in their sleep

  • Lev 23:2 On the fifteenth day of the month this is the Feast of Unleavened-Bread to
    HaShem. Eat unleavened-bread for seven days.

So this then would take us from the 14th to the 22nd of the first month as the complete festival of
Passover. It encompasses the feast of Unleavened bread, Leaven being forbidden according to
the scriptures throughout this 8 day period.

Observances:

  • 14th:
  • Clean house of leaven

  • 15th: The Moed or Festival (Seder) Dinner
  • Day of no work
  • This is the actual passover when blood of the lamb was daubed on the doors
  • 22nd Day of no work

Three main foods are eaten at Passover

  • Matzah or keep the instructions given.
  • Bitter Herbs
  • Flesh of the offering ( Lamb ): Sheep and lamb was a deity to the Egyptians and so God
    chose these animals for the offering so demonstrating his authority over all things.

Why I wondered when beginning my research into sacred text, does the holy days or Moeds' or
fixed times on the natural calendar involve what we eat and what to do and not to do. The laws of
nature are linked throughout the universe and so upon us if we sync ourselves and return to the
true creator of all things. To cleanse ourselves and also to accept divine protection for accepting
and doing the work as taught we will regain the DNA that was severed by the evil inclination

Pesach - Passover / Chag MaTzot - Festival of Commands    
Published Nov 2010    
Intro: In interpreting the Torah correctly I realised that I needed to lock myself away firmly on the one and only
calendar there is to study the Torah...the Hebrew Lunar phased calendar. For two years this is the way I have
lived...reading the Torah portions with the four lunar phases. After deep and prolonged study, I do not accept the
new testament as sacred text on its own. The New testament in no way should be replacing the written Torah of
Moshe. Indeed, if the NT is from above it should be upholding the written Torah of Moshe. Their are good
teachings therein, that uphold the written Torah and can be used to help clarify the Torah but not as a complete
body of work. The new testament is also misinterpreted  by Christianity and messianic ministries. Particularly
regarding firstfruitsThe Lunar calendar was instituted in the beginning for times and seasons and so time
began when the universe was created. Man was able to follow the new moons from the beginning

  • Gen 1:14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the
    night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the
    expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. 16 And God made the two great
    lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. 17 And God
    set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 to rule over the day and over the
    night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was
    evening and there was morning, the fourth day.

My overview and findings are not in line with messianic or Christian theologies concerning all of this. The study
period I entered into was also to study the New Testament and seek the true teachings. The Biblical Calendar is
primarily Lunar / Solar: Dark he calls night / evening. Light he calls day / morning..

  • 5 G-d called light 'day', and darkness he called 'night'. Evening came and morning came: the first day.

There is no afternoon, only two elements..night and morning. Morning must therefore be the hours of daylight
which is mans working hours. Erev, or the evening before join and make up the complete day. At the time of
instituting fixed times with Moshe and Aaron, the biblical calendar is shown to Moshe to keep, the first month is
to be kept in the spring
  • Exodus 12:2 "This month is to you the head month, the first month of the year.

Strict instructions were given to Moshe' and for all mankind not to alter or modify the written Torah (Deut 4:2).
These Moed's or fixed times are just as they state...fixed to the lunar calendar. This seems to constitute a new
beginning or renewal of all things. Many events are happening on these days and it requires careful inspection
to understand each of them

  • Lev 23:5 In the fourteenth of the month of the first month, at twilight, there shall be a passover offering to
    the Lord 6  and on the fifteenth day of that month  the Lord's Feast of Unleavened Bread. You shall eat
    unleavened bread for seven days. 7 On the first day you shall celebrate a sacred occasion: you shall not
    work at your occupations. 8  Seven days you shall make offerings by fire to the Lord. The seventh day
    shall be a sacred occasion: you shall not work at your occupations

Passover begins the 14th day of the first month and lasts for 8 days. In order to establish biblical sabbaths we
must be on the Lunar calendar because that is the commanded given to Moshe. So remember that the creators
days start in the evening till the following evening at sunset, the 14th is the passover offering and Lev 23:5 says
that this was at twilight before the 15th. Passover, Unleavened Bread and the Exodus are all connected in some
way. Please also remember that Yeshua's ministry was many years after the institution of Passover in Exodus
12, 1313 BCE. All of these appointed times were part and preparation for Yeshua demonstrating how to live
Torah.

The Rabbis named the months during their Babylonian exile. I will number the months as written in scripture.
Spring (Abib) is the first month. The word Abib means springtime and in this verse above spoken by the great
prophet Moshe'.....we read how the beginning of months is on the lunar calendar

  • Deut 16:1 Observe the month of Abib and offer a passover sacrifice to the Lord your God, for its was in the
    month of Abib, at night, that the Lord your God freed you from Egypt

The plan of redemption and the teachings here are the Torah. All people can accept the Torah, but it is up to you
to seek the light and not the other way around. The right hand of HaShem G-d is to follow the laws of nature and
the Torah, the plan of salvation and truth. If the NT does not reconcile to the Torah for any reason then it is not
from above. A lot of confusion and disagreement has arisen over the sequence of events surrounding these
feasts.

prolong the agony of
being burned to death.
As the flames engulfed
him, his disciples
asked him, "Master,
what do you see?"
