Chart of the gap between Passover & Good Friday 1990 – 2025
Given that the original ‘Friday’, the basis for Good Friday, occurred on or around the Jewish Passover it should not come as much of a surprise that Passover and Good Friday can occur close together — sometimes even on the SAME DAY as was the case in 2015 & 2012 and WILL BE the case, two-years running, 2018 & 2019.
But given that Easter is your classic ‘movable Feast’, based on both a Full Moon and the Spring Equinox, there can also be large gaps, as much as 28-days as was the case last year, i.e., 2016.
But this year they are just 4 days apart.
Passover: Monday, April 10, 2017.
Good Friday: Friday, April 14, 2017.
Easter Sunday: Sunday, April 16, 2017.
