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

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

Actually, that verse is only referring to the Sabbath.  And I don't see how it allows any leeway with regard to when the Sabbath is to be observed.

Leviticus is saying the 15th day of the month is the day the feast of unleavened brea

mmod starts.

Matthew is talking about the first day of the feast of the leavened bread. ( which would start on the 15th day of the month, in context )

No discrepancy.

No discrepancy. 

 


So Matthew is placing the crucifixion no earlier than the 15th?

OK, then it's a discrepancy. The bible is in error. If that's the answer you're looking for. Or maybe it has to do with the mark of the beast like Sunday worship services do. 

David and his men ate the "shewbread" in the holy place which was forbidden and God didn't kill them.

Apparently, some tweaks were made to the law by the Jews and God didn't get to upset with it

I don't see how Mark 2:27 shows that it is a discrepancy.
