And Yeshua went throughout the cities of Decapolis teaching and showing forth the
coming of the kingdom, and when the feast of Passover drew nigh, he came again unto
Bethsaida, and there was with him many disciples, both of men and women.
Summary: Passover is a seven-day Jewish festival celebrated to commemorate the liberation
of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt under the leadership of Moses. According
to the Hebrew Bible, God helped the children of Israel to freedom by inflicting ten
plagues upon the Egyptians (Old Testament: Exodus).
The festival begins on the 15th day of Nisan, the first month of the Jewish calendar.
The celebration typically falls sometime in March or April of the Gregorian calendar.
The book of Yeshua mentions Passover several times, which helps establish a chronology
of events surrounding Yeshua’s ministry and crucifixion.
