A Study Index of Fred Coulter’s Passover

A Study Index of Fred Coulter’s Book — “The Christian Passover

What Does Passover Mean? When Should Passover Be Observed — the 14th or the 15th? 

The Christian Passover
By Fred R. Coulter 
York Publishing Company
Third Edition 2010 

With over 50 years in the ministry, Fred Coulter has written a comprehensive book on Passover and since then has been the flagship for those who keep Passover on the early fourteenth of Nisan. His book is now over 28 years, spread over three editions, and claimed to have covered all and every issue of the Passover. There is much truth in this claim, so this series of critiques follow his order of Passover issues in his book. Readers can study these critiques from (a) to (l) — from Chapter One to Chapter Nineteen.

On the issue of erev it is defined by the Orthodoxy as “after noon and until nightfall.” Between the two eves (erevs) is the time between the eve of the first decline of the day and the eve of the onset of the night. There are two evenings, one from the time the sun begins to decline, the other is after the sun has gone down.

The time between the eve of the First Evening and eve of the Second Evening is the time “between the two evenings.”

To put it another way: “between the two evenings” is from the time when the sun begins to incline towards the west, which is from the sixth hour [noon or 12 o’clock] and onwards. It is erevim [plural – “evenings”] because there are TWO EVENINGS, for “between the two evenings” is from the time that the sun begins to decline as one evening, and the other evening is after the sun has GONE DOWN.

Fred Coulter has addressed this issue at great length. Of course, like most in the CoG Communities, he has a contrary view.
