The first connection is that the synoptic gospels tell us that the Last Supper of Jesus was the Passover feast, held at the start of the Passover holiday; Jesus was crucified the next day. John's Gospel alters this, to say that Jesus was crucified on the day of Preparation for the Passover feast. John therefore omits the description of the Last Supper, replacing it by Jesus washing the feet of the disciples.

The synoptic gospels draw allusions to the lamb of the Passover, beginning with the story of Pontius Pilate releasing Barabbas instead of Jesus. By having Jesus sacrificed on the day of Preparation, John's Gospel can draw even closer parallels to the Jewish Passover, with Jesus as the sacrificial lamb, which must have no bones broken (John 19:33).

Just as Our Heavenly Father Saved the Children of Israel from slavery in Egypt, Christ Saved us on the Cross, from slavery to sin.

What day of Passover did Jesus die on the cross?

The Jewish calendar has days starting at nightfall and proceeding to the next evening.In the synoptic gospels, , the Passover was on Friday on the year of the crucifixion. The Last Supper was the Feast of the Passover, which occurred on Thursday evening and therefore in the Jewish calendar just as Friday began. In these gospels Jesus died on the cross on the day of the Passover.John's Gospel sought to draw a parallel between Jesus and the paschal lamb, so moves the Passover to Saturday. It omits the Passover meal and, although Jesus was still crucified on Friday, it was the day of preparation for the Passover (John 19:14: "And it was the preparation of the passover ..."

In the synoptic gospels, the Last Supper was on the day of the Jewish Passover feast, so we can say that Jesus and the disciples were partaking of the Passover feast.In John's Gospel, the crucifixion was on the day of preparation for the Passover, so John does not describe a Last Supper, saying just that on evening before, when their supper was ended, Jesus washed the feet of the apostles.

What is the connection between yeast and Christianity?

Very little, it is the Jewish faith that is concerned with yeast (or leaven). For passover the Jewish people must clean their houses of all chametz (leavened products) are removed and make their bread without any. The only connection with Christianity is that the communion wafer (following on from the bread that Christ shared with his disciples at the last supper) is usually unleavened - this is because Christ was a Jew and the bread he shared was unleavened passover bread.
