Acts 12 — the leavened leaders of the ‘lump’ of Israel try to bump off Petros

It’s no coincidence God frees Petros (Peter) from jail during Passover/Unleavened Bread, which even at that time was understood to be a removing of "sourness" from one’s life. In Acts 12, the "leaven" of Herod and of the leaders was shown to be "spoiling" Israel.

Food for thought from the recorded discussion

How are the yearly "feasts of the LORD" of Passover and Unleavened Bread connected to the "law of liberty" (i.e., the Torah, James 1:25; James 2:12)? How can the Torah, which apostle Paul said both "brings wrath" (Rom. 4:15) and “is holy and righteous and good” (Rom. 7:12,16), bring liberty? How is this connected with removing leaven — chamets in Hebrew literally means "sourness" — from one’s house and the land of Israel during the festival and God’s deliverance of Israel from Egypt (see Exodus 12-13)?

How is God’s deliverance of Peter from jail on the night of his execution connected to the lessons of removal of leaven and deliverance from Egypt?
