What is Easter?

Easter: a feast of festival of the Christian Church that commemorates the resurrection of Christ.It is celebrated on the first Sunday following the full moon that occurs on or after March 21-or one week later if the full moon falls on Sunday.

Easter was originally a pagan festival honoring Estore, a Teutonic goddess of light and spring. At the time of the vernal equinox, scarifies were offered in her honor. As early as the eighth century, the word was used to designate the annual Christian celebration of the resurrection of Christ.

The only appearance of the word Easter in the Bible is a mistranslation of Pascha , the Greek word for "Passover" (Acts 12:4).


Passover is referred to the sacrifice of the lamb in Egypt when the people of Israel were slaves. They smeared the blood of the lamb on their doorpost as a signal to God that He should "Pass over" their houses when He destroyed all the firstborn of Egypt ( Ex. 12:13). Passover was observed on the 14th day of the first month with the service beginning in the evening (Lev. 23:6). It was on the evening of the day Israel left Egypt. Passover commemorated their departure from Egypt in haste. Unleavened bread was used in celebration because this showed that people had no time to put leaven in their bread as they ate their final meals as slaves in Egypt. In the New Testament times, large numbers gathered in Jerusalem to observe the annual Passover. Jesus was crucified in the city during one of these Passover celebrations. He and His disciples ate a Passover meal together on the eve of His death. Like the blood of the lamb that saved the Hebrew people from destruction in Egypt, His blood, as the ultimate Passover sacrifice, redeems us from the power of sin and death (1 Cor. 5:7).

Jesus is Crucified

(Matthew 26:57-27:66)

Jesus is nailed to a cross with nails drove through His hands and feet. It was a slow and painful death. Jesus hung there helplessly for a long time as the hot sun beat down on His body. Gradually He weakened, His body tortured by muscles cramps, hunger and thirst.

My heart just aches to think of Him hanging there for you and me. Do you really know what He did for you? He died for you...

Resurrection of Jesus

(Matthew 28:1-6)

He is Risen!!!! On the third day God raised Jesus from the dead. the resurrection is the point at which God's intention for Jesus becomes clear (Rom. 1:4) and believers are assured that Jesus is the Christ.

" My friends, I want you to remember the message that I preached and that you believe and trusted. You will be saved by this message, if you hold firmly to it. But if you don't, your faith was all for nothing. I told you the most important part to the message exactly as it was told to me. That part is: Christ died for our sins, as the scripture say. He was buried, and three days later He was raised to life, as the scripture say." ( 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4)

He died for you!!! Will you invite him in?

Do you know Jesus

The Sunday before Easter is known as Palm Sunday, when Jesus rode triumphantly into Jerusalem. People gathered around Him, throwing their garments along His path and waving palm branches and singing, "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" (Matthew 21:7-9). Palm Sunday is the beginning of Holy Week.

Good Friday is a day of somber meditation, commemorates Jesus' trial, crucifixion, and death (Matthew 26:57-27:66). In the Roman Catholic Church, ( I am a born again Christian) this is the only day of the year that no Mass is said. In many Protestant churches, all altar candles are extinguished, recalling the temporary triumph of death over life.

Easter Symbols

Easter eggs-The shell can be seen as a nurturing, life giving tomb. The hatching chick represents Christ emerging from the tomb.They represent the new life that returns to nature about Easter time. The custom of exchanging eggs began in ancient times. The ancient Egyptians and Persians often dyed eggs in spring colors and gave them to their friends as gifts. The Persians believed that the earth had hatched from a giant egg. Early Christians of Mesopotamis were the first to use colored eggs for Easter. In some European countries, people colored eggs red to represent the joy of the resurrection. In England, friends often wrote messages and dates on the eggs they exchanged, Elaborate candy eggs with a window in one end and tiny scenes inside were popular gifts in the 1800īs.

Lamb-Jesus is associated with the paschal lamb in the Exodus story. The blood of the Passover lamb caused the angel of death to "pass over" the Israelites. John the Baptist calls Jesus "The Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." John 1:29


Easter Bunny-The Easter bunny has its origin in pre-Christian fertility lore. The Hare and the Rabbit were the most fertile animals known and they served as symbols of the new life during the Spring season. The bunny as an Easter symbol seems to have it's origins in Germany, where it was first mentioned in German writings in the 1500s. The first edible Easter bunnies were made in Germany during the early 1800s. And were made of pastry and sugar. The Easter bunny was introduced to American folklore by the German settlers who arrived in the Pennsylvania Dutch country during the 1700s. The arrival of the "Oschter Haws" was considered "childhood's greatest pleasure" next to a visit from Christ-Kindle on Christmas Eve. The children believed that if they were good the "Oschter Haws" would lay a nest of colored eggs. The children would build their nest in a secluded place in the home, the barn or the garden. Boys would use their caps and girls their bonnets to make the nests . The use of elaborate Easter baskets would come later as the tradition of the Easter bunny spread through out the country.

Lilies are used to decorate churches and homes. The large, pure white blossoms of the Easter Lilies remind Christians of the pure new life that comes to them through the Resurrection of Jesus. The new plant life that appears in spring symbolizes new life.
