Easter is NOT a Pagan Tradition | Victor Tey

Acts 12:1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
Acts 12:2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
Acts 12:3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
Acts 12:4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
Acts 12:5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

Luke 22:1 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.

  1. “Easter” is not pagan, it is just another word for “Passover”
  2. Easter is a time where we remember the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  3. My understanding is, that English translations of the bible prior to the King James Version contained more instances of the word “Easter” in place of “Passover”.
  4. Let’s celebrate with the Lord’s supper and breaking of bread, not with vain traditions such as chocolate eggs and bunnies.
  5. Hot cross buns seem to make sense with the symbolism of the bread and the cross – but my family still doesn’t make or buy them.
