Chapter Summary

The passover sacrifice is mentioned indirectly in all the Pentateuchal sets of laws: in the Book of the Covenant and the Smaller Book of the Covenant, as this chapter demonstrates; within the framework of the Priestly Source, that is, in the calendar of "the sacred occasions" and in the list of additional sacrifices offered up during the year; also in the code of Deuteronomy, where a number of details relating to this sacrifice are cited. This chapter focuses on the features that characterize the passover offering and the dramatic gesticulations connected with its preparation. According to the P passage (Exod. xii 1-14) this sacrifice is to be offered up on an exact date in the year, namely the fourteenth of the first month, and is to be slaughtered at twilight.
