When you look at the Old Testament record of the first Passover it is clear that it was at the beginning of the 14th day of the first month. But later in the Old Testament historical record we see the Passover being killed in the afternoon near the end of the 14th day of the month. In this sermon Mr. Smith looks at the New Testament Passover events recorded in the gospels and we again see two different timings of the Passover.
