When did the Jewish people begin to celebrate Passover?

The next time the Jewish people brought this offering was 39 years later, when they entered Israel. “Why?” you ask.

When did we offer a lamb as a Passover offering?

G‑d commanded us to offer a lamb as a Passover offering on the first anniversary and did not ask of us to do this again until 39 years later. And since we weren’t commanded to do so, it would have been forbidden to offer an offering in the Tabernacle that was not requested by G‑d. Then why the embarrassment?

When did the Egyptians die at the Passover?

All the firstborn of Egypt are killed at the stroke of midnight of the 15th of the month of Nissan. With the final plague, God promised to strike dead every first-born son in Egypt at midnight on the 15th day of the month of Nissan. However, to Moses, the Lord provided instructions so his people would be spared.
