The L-RD's App: The Appointed Times
[PURIM], PASSOVER, UNLEAVENED BREAD, FIRST FRUITS, SHAVUOT, YOM TERUAH, YOM KIPPUR, SUKKOT, [HANUKKAH]
Passover was clearly instituted before the tenth plague that hit the Egyptians before the Israelites were allowed to leave Egypt. G-D instructed Moses and Aaron in Exodus 12:1-13 to sacrifice an unblemished male lamb, a year old (v. 5) and to kill it at twilight (v.6).
Part of the directive was to take some blood and put it in the door post and on the lintel of the house (v.7). They shall eat the lamb meat roasted, with unleavened bread and bitter herbs (v.8).
