Question 32 – Which one is first “Passover with His Disciples” or crucifixion?

Luke 22:7-8, 13-15 NKJV - Then came the Day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover must be killed. And He sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat." ... So they went and found it just as He had said to them, and they prepared the Passover. When the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him. Then He said to them, "With [fervent] desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer”
John 13:1-2 NKJV - Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's [son], to betray Him.
John 19:14-15 NKJV - Now it was the Preparation Day of the Passover, and about the sixth hour. And he said to the Jews, "Behold your King!" But they cried out, "Away with Him, away with Him! Crucify Him!" Pilate said to them, "Shall I crucify your King?" The chief priests answered, "We have no king but Caesar!"
                Exodus 23:14-15, “Three times you shall keep a feast to Me in the year”. You shall eat the unleavened bread seven days”. As in Leviticus 23rd chapter, the Lord’s Passover is held at twilight.
                As in Luke 22:13-15, the Lord Christ ate the Passover with His disciples on Wednesday night among these seven days of the festival of unleavened bread. At the time of eating the Passover, the Lord Christ said to Peter in Luke 22:34, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster will not crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me”.
                This day means the day of Passover, the Lord Jesus said to Peter that you will deny three times.
                After the Passover, Luke 22:39, “And coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him”.
                The Lord Jesus went to the Mount of Olives for the prayer. At that night, the Lord Jesus was taken away by capturing Him after His prayer.
                The Passover will occur seven days. So, the Passover will end at twilight on seventh day (Saturday).
                John 19:14 and John 19:31 after the Preparation Day of the Passover, Sabbath was a High Day.
                So, the soldiers broke the legs of both the thieves and buried them in the grave. The Lord Jesus also was in the grave in the High Day Sabbath.

                From this, the Preparation Day of the Passover was the Friday. So, they crucified Him and descended Him on the cross and buried Him. So, the Lord ate the Passover with His disciples on the Thursday. From this, we know that the day, on which the Lord Jesus was crucified, was the Friday. All incidents happened methodically.
