And Yeshua wasn't crucified on 'good Friday' - he was crucified on Wednesday, Nisan 15, 30CE - Passover. On the Gregorian calendar, that was this past Tuesday.

Re: Easter is Pagan
All Christian holidays trace their roots back to the pagan celebrations....it's how Christianity finally eradicated the pagans. If you can't beat them, rename it and take it over.

The truth gets so easily hijacked. The saddest thing is that many know Easter is pagan and simply do not care.

You are correct. Christ's message was subverted for political and economic benefit to an empire.

Still is.

Some think Obama is the anti-christ. I do not. The next one? I think the anti-christ will be all about some good main-stream christianity. Roman style.

nothing wrong with fertility. Nothing wrong with Springtime and the rebirth of natures cycle. Just don't confuse it with the message of Christ.

Classic stuff! chuckle


"Easter the day Jesus rose from the death what shall we do?"

"How about eggs!?!"

"Well what does that have to do with Jesus?"

"Alright we'll hide em!"

"....I don't follow your logic..."

"Don't worry there's a bunny."

it would be interesting to know the history of the nature religions of northern europe prior to Roman Christianity.

I bet they can be traced to Egypt.

Nope. We still do the Fri, Sat, Sun story. Easter has been depaganized but it still has interesting history before it was taken over by Jesus to be known as the day he arose.

You take it over, give it a new name, and officially sacntion it...and put it on your calander.

Are all holidays pagan?
