I’m curious:

So I’m curious do you celebrate resurrection Sunday or do you celebrate Easter? I have seen so many more posts about Easter than I have resurrection Sunday?

    1. It’s confusing to me because as a kid Easter meant a bunny and candy. It had nothing to do with Jesus. But as I got older the Easter bunny has nothing to do with Jesus and his resurrection.

      1. I was talking to someone about this very thing. Folks scared to deal with the Resurrection. Means dealing with their broken pieces and why Jesus died on The Cross because of US. Hard pill to swallow.

  1. According to Wikipedia, the eggs came first, and Germans added the rabbit later. “The custom of the Easter egg originated in the early Christian community of Mesopotamia, who stained eggs red in memory of the blood of Christ, shed at his crucifixion.”

  2. Easter and Passover are very different celebrations although overtime they’ve been merged into one, mostly for commercial reasons. Easter is a pagan holiday that started long before Christianity. The eggs and bunny represent new life and fertility and are tied to worship of Eostre a goddess of spring or renewal. Passover is the Jewish celebration of when the angel of death passed over the Israelites when they were slaves in Egypt. It was to remind them of God’s saving power, his love for his people and how he always keeps his promises. After doing some research I realized that I shouldn’t celebrate Passover or Easter as they actually have nothing to do with Christianity. Jesus instituted a new covenant the same night as the Passover before his death. At Luke 22:19,20 Jesus passed the bread and wine that represent his blood and body and told them to “keep doing this is remembrance of me”. So I follow that command and commemorate that meal annually. It just happens to fall on the same day as Passover.

    I worry about mixing celebrations that have ties to pagan festivals or other gods. Wouldn’t that be like trying to partake from the table of Jehovah God and the table of demons? (1 Corinthians 10:21)
