I agree with you that the Last Supper was indeed the Passover Seder of Temple times, but I have to disagree with you that Rabenu Yeshu'a was following the Essene calendar. I have been fighting this calendar problem for years as it is used to show that substantial contradictions exist in the Gospel accounts. Matthew, Mark and Luke recount that Our Lord did observe the traditional Passover, while the Fourth Gospel seems to state that He celebrated an alternative Seder.
Let the fight begin. I'm not too much of a fan of the Essene theory myself.
