Mark 14:12

When they sacrificed the passover (ote to pasca equon). Imperfect indicative, customary practice. The paschal lamb (note pasca) was slain at 6 P.M., beginning of the fifteenth of the month ( Exodus 12:6 ), but the preparations were made beforehand on the fourteenth (Thursday). See on "Mt 26:17" for discussion of "eat the passover."
