Footnote #5 = Seder Olam uses a 3761bc Adam as 1am start of a 19-year lunar calendar and records figures to a 1313bc exodus as 2449am. (The 2450 is an attempt to make Jubilee, though Jubilee is not 50, it is 49 to the 50th so that 2449am would qualify as it is. Problem there is Adams year 1am plus 49 is 50am, expecting 2450am instead of 2449am. But Jewish do not go by 50s, they cycle the 7-year unbroken. which would expect cycles of 49 from 1am to 2451am. ) 75.86.172.174 (talk) 18:31, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

==Date and duration==[edit]

The page currently says, "The Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan, which typically falls in March or April of the Gregorian calendar."

Can someone make the article more specific?

The Easter article says, "In Western Christianity, using the Gregorian calendar, Easter always falls on a Sunday between 22 March and 25 April inclusive, within about seven days after the astronomical full moon."

Since the date was mathematically fixed in the fourth century, what is the earliest and what is the latest dates on the Gregorian calendar that 15 Nisan can fall?
