Easter or Passover- Origin of Easter Celebration, and Why We Must Celebrate The PASSOVER And THE RESURRECTION Rather Than Easter.

 

 

Origin of Easter

 

 

By Chinwe Yeshua

Easter, Latin Pascha, Greek Pascha, Principal Celebration of THE YEHUDA HAMASCHIAC РJudeo Christian CHURCH- Global Ministry  which seeks to celebrates  Resurrection of YHWH YESHUA HAMASCHIAC  ON THE THIRD DAY  after HIS Crucifixion. The earliest recorded observance of an Easter celebration comes from the 2nd century, though the commemoration of YHWH’S RESURRECTION actually occurred THE DAY HE, YHWH HAMASCHIAC RESURRECTED.

The English word “Easter,” which parallels the German word Ostern, is of uncertain origin. One view, expounded by the Venerable¬†Bede¬†in the 8th century, was that it derived from Eostre, or Eostrae, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of¬†spring¬†and¬†fertility. ¬†Given the determination with which Christians combated all forms of paganism (the belief in multiple deities), this appears a rather dubious presumption. There is now widespread¬†consensus¬†that the word derives from the Christian¬†designation¬†of Easter week as¬†in albis, a¬†Latin¬†phrase that was understood as the plural of¬†alba¬†(‚Äúdawn‚ÄĚ) and became¬†eostarum¬†in¬†Old High German, the¬†precursor¬†of the modern German and English term. The Latin and Greek Pascha (‚ÄúPassover‚ÄĚ) provides the root for P√Ęques, the French word for Easter.

The Date of Easter and its Controversies.

Fixing the date on which the RESURRECTION OF Our YHWH YESHUA HAMASCHIAC¬† Was to be observed and celebrated triggered a major controversy in early YEHUDA HAMASCHIAC -Judeo- Christianity movement¬†in which an Eastern and a Western position can be distinguished. The dispute, known as the¬†Paschal controversies, was not definitively resolved until the 8th century. In¬†Asia Minor, The¬† YEHUDA HAMASCHIAC observed The Day of the Crucifixion on the same Day That The YEHUDA-Jews celebrated The PESACH- PASSOVER offering‚ÄĒthat is, on the 14th day of the first¬†full moon of spring, 14 Nisan (see¬†Jewish calendar). The RESURRECTION, then, was observed two days later, on 16 Nisan, regardless of the day of the week. In the West the RESURRECTION of YHWH YEHSUA HAMASCHIAC was celebrated on the first day of the week, Sunday, when YHWH YESHUA¬† ROSE from The Dead. Consequently, Easter was always celebrated on the first Sunday after the 14th day of the month of Nisan. Increasingly, The Church opted for the Sunday celebration, and the Quartodecimans (‚Äú14th day‚ÄĚ proponents) remained a minority. The Council of Nicaea¬†in 325 decreed that Easter should be observed on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the spring¬†equinox¬†(March 21). Easter, therefore, can fall on any Sunday between March 22 and April 25.

Eastern Orthodox Ministries use a slightly different calculation based on the Julian rather than the Gregorian calendar (which is 13 days ahead of the former), with the result that the Orthodox Easter celebration usually occurs later than that celebrated by Protestants and Roman Catholics. Moreover, the Orthodox tradition prohibits Easter from being celebrated before or at the same time as Passover.

In the 20th century several attempts were made to arrive at a fixed date for Easter, with the Sunday following the second Saturday in April specifically proposed. While this proposal and others had many supporters, none came to fruition. Renewed interest in a fixed date arose in the early 21st century, resulting from discussions involving the leaders of Eastern Orthodox, Syriac Orthodox, Coptic, Anglican, and Roman Catholic Church, but formal agreement on such a date remained elusive.

 

The Yehuda- Jewish Pesach-Passover And THE RESURRECTION Celebration

Pesach (English:Passover) commemorates one of the most significant events in Y’Israel (Israel) history ‚Äď the Sh’mot-Exodus from Egypt. The Y’Israel people had been enslaved by the Egyptians for hundreds of years and suffered the indignities of slavery. THE GREAT RUACH HAKODESH saw their distress and sent Moshe to Pharaoh with the message of ‚ÄėLet my People Go.‚Äô Pharaoh refused to free The Children Of The GREAT YHWH OF Israel hence The Name Y’Israel.¬† THE GREAT AND MIGHTY YHWH Sent ten plagues upon the Egyptians, culminating in the tenth plague, in which the firstborn of Egypt died at the stroke of midnight. On the following day, Y’Israei¬† left Egypt.
The¬†Passover¬†Seder (Hebrew: ‚Äúorder‚ÄĚ) Is a religious meal served in Jewish homes on the 15th and 16th of the month of Nisan to commence the festival of Pesach (Passover).¬† commemorates the events of the Jewish experience in Egypt ‚Äď from their enslavement to the miraculous events of the Sh’mot-Exodus. The Seder is replete with symbols and rituals that convey the story of the Exodus, that is movement from slavery to redemption. The bitter herbs mark the bitterness of slavery, the four cups of wine celebrate freedom, the matzah commemorates The YEHUDA- Jews‚Äô hasty departure from Egypt, which did not allow time for their bread to rise, and the Four Questions convey the importance of the quest for knowledge, which can only be gained by asking and inquiring.
YHWH YESHUA HAMASCHIAC’S BLOOD Represents the Sprinkling of The BLOOD of The PESACH/PASSOVER LAMB, because HE IS Our PESACH/ PASSOVER LAMB. Hence It is PESACH Celebration on a GOOD Friday for all YEHUDA HAMASCHIAC- Judeo-Christians And hopefully The YEHUDA ( Jewish) sect. Then THE RESURRECTION not Easter Pagan celebration, follows on The Holy¬† Sunday. We will no longer have Eostre, The Anglo-Saxon¬† goddess of spring and fertility history linked in anyway to Our SAVIOUR AND CONQUEROR’S VICTORY OVER DEATH ON Our Behalf, But JOYOUS RESURRECTION DAY.
Eostre or Ostre was overtaken by Our MASCHIAC- The ANNOINTED ONE, not Messiah .
So let’s celebrate and Be RESSIRECTED Too.
