Exodus Chapter 12

This is the beginning of the Hebrew calendar as far as we know for certain. But it probably existed from the very beginning. The first month is given the name Abib (Ex. 13:4), which means “spring” or “a young ear of grain.” It overlaps with the modern months of March and April. Most of the months in Scripture did not have names. They are only numbered except for the first one. This changes after they leave Babylon. They adopted the names of the months from the Babylonians who named the months after their gods.

Matthew Chapter 26

Now, if we have this timing correct, this is on a Tuesday and Passover is on Thursday in 32 AD… Some people claim that Yeshua was crucified on a Friday, but that is not possible. We are told in John 11:54 to John 12:1 that Yeshua traveled from Bethany to Jerusalem six days previous. That means He would have walked at least 15 miles as the crow flies on that day. It was probably closer to 25 miles or more since waterways had to be crossed. If Yeshua were crucified on a Friday, six days previous would have been on the Sabbath Day. He probably would not have traveled that far on the Sabbath. Paul sometimes made it a point not to travel on the Sabbath. Yeshua would have done the same unless it was absolutely necessary.
