Discrepancy between Leviticus 23:6 and Matthew 26:17 ?


Recommended Posts

Leviticus 23:6 says : “And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread...”

However, Matthew 26:17 says: “Now on the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?”

Any thoughts on the seeming discrepancy?

The two holidays were eventually combined as one.

"Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover." Luke 22:1

The passover was originally to be held in each individual home but was eventually observed at the temple. 

The holidays were made for man not man for the holidays so God allowed some leeway. Mark 2:27

"In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten."- Ezekiel 45:21
