Because of what God was going to do it was to be reckoned as the first month of Israel’s calendar.  Because of my salvation and my born again experience May 1956 was my first month of the year.
Next even though Chapter 11 already gives the account of the death of the firstborn, which will come later of course in this chapter , God prepares Israel to leave.  They eat no leavened bread for 7 days before eating the Passover.  After killing the Passover lamb they were to put blood from that Lamb over the door of the house and on both door posts and that was to tell the death angel not to kill the first-born son.  I often wonder if any Israelite may have said this is too simple or too crude.  Would his first son be saved?  Yet we have this (not the same) in our country and in our world.  God would not be obligated to save that firstborn without that blood.  Today for us it is simply the blood of our Passover Lamb Jesus.  Faith has to be attached to it or it’s no good.  Without faith it is impossible to please Him.  Hebrews 11:6
