Exclusive Material: How long is Passover?

Here is an interesting question...How long Passover really is?

Let's take a look at what Torah says:
YLT Ex 12:15 Seven days ye eat unleavened things; only--in the first day ye cause leaven to cease out of your houses; for any one eating anything fermented from the first day till the seventh day, even that person hath been cut off from Israel. 
YLT Ex 12:16  'And in the first day is a holy convocation, and in the seventh day ye have a holy convocation; any work is not done in them, only that which is eaten by any person--it alone is done by you, 
YLT Ex 12:18  'In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, ye do eat unleavened things until the one and twentieth day of the month, at evening; 
YLT Ex 12:19 seven days leaven is not found in your houses, for any one eating anything fermented--that person hath been cut off from the company of Israel, among the sojourners or among the natives of the land; 
YLT Lv 23:4 'These are appointed seasons of Jehovah, holy convocations, which ye proclaim in their appointed seasons: 
YLT Lv 23:5 in the first month, on the fourteenth of the month, between the evenings, is the passover to Jehovah; 
YLT Lv 23:6 and on the fifteenth day of this month is the feast of unleavened things to Jehovah; seven days unleavened things ye do eat; 
YLT Lv 23:7 on the first day ye have a holy convocation, ye do no servile work; 
YLT Lv 23:8 and ye have brought near a fire-offering to Jehovah seven days; in the seventh day is a holy convocation; ye do no servile work.' 
YLT Num 28:16 'And in the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, is the passover to Jehovah; 
YLT Num 28:17 and in the fifteenth day of this month is a festival, seven days unleavened food is eaten; 
YLT Num 28:18 in the first day is an holy convocation, ye do no servile work, 
YLT Num 28:25 and on the seventh day a holy convocation ye have, ye do no servile work.
At first glance, everything seem to make sense. At the same time, if you compare 1st month with the 7th month, the similarities and differences will be apparent.

The most troublesome difference is the Holy Meeting on the 7th day of Passover. If 1st of Passover falls on Shabbat, the 7th of Passover will fall on the day BEFORE Shabbat, which will give us very suspicious combination of Holy Meeting BEFORE Shabbat. This, of'course, does not make sense, because Torah never says that double of Manna felt on any of the Holy Meetings, let alone the triple amount we need on the 5th day. On the 6th  day, a day before Shabbat - yes, but on the 5th day, 2 days before Shabbat - no, absolutely not.

So, Sukkot has a Holy Meeting on the 1st and 8th, which makes perfect sense - from Shabbat to Shabbat. So why Passover is different?

The answer to this question is such: The text of the Torah was blatantly edited to accommodate Pharisaic (Rabbinic) agenda and teachings, which teach that Passover lasts only 7 days and not 8. It is interesting and worthy to note that some Jewish communities observe Passover for 8 days indeed, but unfortunately not for the Torah reasons but rather due to the tradition.

Unfortunately, the text of Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers is the same in all 3 available witnesses, which means that the text got corrupted prior to the 2nd Temple period.

The correct Passover should be observed for 8 days, with Holy Meetings on the 1st and the 8th days. This means that one should eat unleavened bread for 7 DAYS, from Shabbat to Shabbat by the correct Torah calendar. This is another example of how corrupted Rabbinic teaching really are! Specifically, I am referring to Exodus 12:18, where it should say 22nd and not 21st.

This is even confirmed in Numbers 29:35-38, where 8th day is mentioned, even though it says in traditional translation that we are to observe the festival for seven days. Traditional translation is clearly invalid because what we are to do on the 2nd Holy Meeting? It is still part of both festivals so imho it means that we are to keep the observance on this last day as well. So we eat unleavened bread and sit in sukkah for 7 days, and on the 8th day we have a Holy Meeting when we can eat bread/do not live in sukkah anymore.

Afterall, 7th Month is pretty much identical reflection of the 1st month, which means that Holy days that fall on both of these month have to be observed for the same number of days.

This way, everything starts to make sense. First of all, we do not have a very weird Holy Meeting before Shabbat combination. Secondly, now Passover month is similar to Sukkot month, meaning we have a special days on the 10th and from 15th through 22nd. This way, there is also a connection now with the circumcision. Circumcision happens on the 8th day, more specifically on the Shabbat if you count from the child birth. So as you can see, number 8 is significant because it signifies a Torah calendar week.

Please note that it is 8 days between two Shabbats, because a week can't be by itself. The only time when the week was 7 days was at the time of the creation because there was nothing before the 1st day. After the creation week, all following weeks are preceded by the Shabbat. This is why second Shabbat of the month falls on the 8th and not of the 7th.

I hope now it is clear how corrupted text of our Torah is and that the Passover is 8 days.

Just look how beautiful this system works this year in my Torah calendar:
