Working Through the Unleavened Bread Issues–Part Three (Resources & Notes)

[Note:  Even though “erev” does have an application to the general end of the day as does the English word “evening,” it would be difficult to generalize the term to the afternoon within the context of the Sabbath day and the period between the two evenings because some Rabbinic interpretations place sunset specifically at the 6th hour of the day.]

[Note:  The word “even” in the Authorized Version is translated as “twilight” in the Torah, which is noted in its accompanying commentary to be the evening “before it became completely dark” at sunset.  According to Rabbinic tradition it was expanded to mean “the hours between noon and nightfall.”]
