In Exodus 12:8 (NASB)

They shall eat the flesh that same night, roasted with fire, and they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

we can read of a roasted lamb that goes together with the unleavened bread and bitter herbs. Then, in Numbers 9:11-12 (NASB)

11 In the second month on the fourteenth day at twilight, they shall celebrate it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. 12 They shall not leave any of it until morning, nor break a bone of it; they shall celebrate it in accordance with the whole statute of the Passover.

Does Numbers 9:11-12 assume the existence of the roasted lamb?

  • I struggle to understand the motivation for this question. Why was the lamb not present? – Dottard Feb 16 at 21:35
  • @Dottard just for clarification since the word "lamb" doesn't exist in that passage – Tiago Martins Peres 李大仁 Feb 16 at 21:40

Does Numbers 9:11-12 assume the existence of the roasted lamb?

Yes, it is implied by the grammar and the context.

12 They shall not leave any of it until morning, nor break a bone of it;

Exodus 12:46

"It must be eaten inside the house; take none of the meat outside the house. Do not break any of the bones.
