Re: [textualcriticism] Mark 14:12
While I haven't tried to research this in the resources James Snapp so kindly provided, I think it should be kept in mind that today it is not unusual to refer to the first and last days of Passover, the last day, of course, being really the last day of Unleavened Bread. So perhaps one should expect similar usages in antiquity. The two feasts are very closely associated.

It seems that this verse places Passover on the first day of Unleavened Bread. Which can't be.
Are there any significant variations that would read differently?
