Was Jesus Crucified During The Passover?
Yes, according to the accounts in the New Testament, Jesus was crucified during the time of the Jewish Passover. The Gospel of Matthew, Mark, and Luke all record that the Last Supper, which was the final meal Jesus shared with his disciples before his arrest and crucifixion, was a Passover meal.
In the Gospel of John, the Passover meal is not explicitly mentioned, but there are references to the festival throughout the narrative. For example, in John 13:1, it says, "Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end."
Furthermore, the timing of Jesus' crucifixion is also consistent with the Passover. The Passover festival begins on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Nisan, which typically falls in March or April. The Gospel of John states that Jesus was crucified on the day before the Passover, which would have been the 14th of Nisan (John 19:14).
Therefore, based on the accounts in the New Testament, it is generally accepted that Jesus was crucified during the time of the Jewish Passover.
