There is no question that Jesus and the disciples kept the Passover therefore we follow His example and observe the New Testament Passover today. But from time to time within the church, a question comes up as to what date the Passover should be observed. Should Christians observe the Passover on Nisan 14 or 15? Did the Israelites observe the first Passover on Nisan 14 or 15? What events occurred during the first Passover and how do these events fit within the timeline of Nisan 14 and 15?
