On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Yeshua and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”

He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” So the disciples did as Yeshua had directed them and prepared the Passover.

While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”

Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

-Matthew 26

Chag semeach Pesach, fine blog readers! Happy Passover! Remembering Messiah during this time. Shalom!


  1. To more completely understand this passage in Matthew 26, it should be understood that in the first century the titles for Passover and the Feast of unleavened bread were interchangeable. Passover stating on the 14th at twilight and Unleavened bread starts at sundown starting the 15th of Abib. Preparations for the Passover begin well before the afternoon on the 14th. In both Luke 22:1-13 and Mark 14:12-18 we are told it was the day of Passover when Yeshua shared his meal with the the disciples, but if we look closely, we see something is not right because if it was the day of Passover, then Yeshua would have died that same day. But, at the time he ate with his disciples, He had not yet been arrested, convicted and executed.
    Upon closer examination, we see that these Scriptures do not say that Yeshua and His disciples ate a Passover meal, but rather that they "prepared" for the Passover. And nowhere do we see that Yeshua held an actual Passover Seder meal, performing any of the 15 traditional symbolic steps. We are told that He reclined with His disciples on the evening of the day He had ordered them to prepare for the Passover and at that time He explained to them the meaning of the wine and matzah.
