At what point during Passover is the "slaying of the lamb"?
Before celebrating the last supper, did our Lord eat the Passover or did he not?
Does Passover begin on Nisan 15 or 14?
In the Old Testament, the Israelites were required to celebrate the Passover Supper by eating the lamb whole, and without eating anything that has yeast in it. They ate unleavened bread (feteer without yeast). How come our Lord Jesus Christ after Supper (I'm assuming the second Supper, which is the Passover Supper), took bread,...broke, and gave to His disciples. We too, during the Liturgy eat Communion, which is bread that is baked with yeast. If yeast is a symbol of sin, and the Israelites were not permitted to eat yeasted bread during the Passover, how come Jesus and the disciples ate, and we also eat yeasted bread during Communion?
What was the meal that the Lord ate with His disciples on Covenant Thursday? If it were Passover, why were they sitting at the table and not standing according to the Holy Book of Exodus 12?
Why did the Israelites eat the Passover lamb on BITTER HERBS? What is the significance and/or symbolism of bitter herbs?
