"The bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven" (John 6:33)—More strictly in accord with the idiom of the original Greek would be: "The bread of God is that which comes down from heaven." Goodspeed suggests: "It is God's bread that comes down out of heaven."

"The first day of the feast of unleavened bread" (Matt. 26:17)—According to Exodus 23:15, this feast lasted for seven days during the month Abib (otherwise known as Nisan) and was closely associated with the Passover celebrated on the fourteenth day of the month.
