As indicated by the verse cited in the question, the Passover associated with Jesus' death and resurrection began at sundown on the day now commonly called Maundy Thursday by Christians. The first day of Passover thus lasted from sundown on Thursday until sundown on the day that Christians refer to as Good Friday (the day prior to the weekly Jewish Sabbath, which ran from sundown on Friday until sundown on Saturday)(John 19:31).
