In the 2nd century, it says they celebrated their Messianic Passover on the 14th of Nisan. We should try to celebrate the Passover on that day because that is the day God told us to celebrate it. Because some of us live in a Gentile world, we might have no choice, but to celebrate it on another day. Believers in the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) are to celebrate the Passover.
Shaul (Paul) tells us to celebrate the Passover in 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 CJB: "For our Pesach lamb, the Messiah, has been sacrificed. So let us celebrate the Seder not with leftover hametz, the hametz of wickedness and evil, but with the matzah of purity and truth."
In other words, Shaul says to get rid of sin and be a new person (we are made new by the Messiah Yeshua). The Messiah Yeshua is our Passover Lamb and He sacrificed Himself for us. Guard, keep the Passover and also be free from sin, wickedness, and evil. Be pure and do what is right and good.

A Messianic Passover Seder
Passover is a remembrance ceremony. It is not so important how we observe God's feast, but that we follow God’s instructions. Yeshua quoted Isaiah and said, “And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men;” Matthew 15:9. Having some sort of prepared plan gives honor to God.

The Two Events at Yeshua's (Jesus') Tomb
We should remember that the gospels don't have to be telling the same stories in exactly the same way. Otherwise, we might think their accounts were doctored or copied from each other. Similar accounts can be the same or different stories entirely. Some accounts that are the same can also add more information to the story. In the case of the women going to Yeshua’s tomb, it appears there were two stories. In this case, the synoptic gospels tell one story and Rabbi Yochanan (John) tells another different story.
Passover Day 1 Teaching
God freed Israel on Passover so they could serve God and the Messiah gave Himself as our Passover sacrifice to give us hope and help us to follow God. Who would want to turn down God's help? God cares about us and He considers us to be His chosen and holy people. How special is that? The Messiah's burden is easy; God's laws are not difficult to keep (For this mitzvah which I am giving you today is not too hard for you;" Deuteronomy 30:11 CJB.). God is a loving and good God that has poured out His grace in the past on Israel and continues to pour our His favor and give us the Holy Spirit after we believe in the Messiah Yeshua. Be faithful, don't be deceived by the world and its sinful ways. God is there for us, giving us hope, and setting us free to live for Him.
