Should Christians Celebrate Easter and as a Moveable Feast?
by Sandor Balog  
9/13/2011 / Bible Studies


From the Bible we cannot determine the exact date of Jesus's death. At least, this is the widely-held view on this topic. The question necessarily arises: What if Christians today knew definitely the exact day Jesus was killed on? Would they then continue celebrating Easter, or rather the resurrection of Jesus according to the Passover traditions of the Old Testament? Or would they change this custom and switch to celebrating it every year on that very calendar day when Jesus was killed?
As we know, Easter is a Pagan feast and Passover is a Jewish feast rooted in the Old Testament. Pagans celebrate the rebirth of nature and fertility, with cute bunnies, painted eggs and many other disgusting customs and "traditions". The Jews celebrate their Passover, their exodus from Egypt, while Christians celebrate the ransom sacrifice of Jesus, His Last Supper, as He instructed us. The Last Supper or Lord's Supper occurred after sunset, on March 24, 31 CE.
Accordingly, there are three different feasts at "Easter time": a Pagan, a Jewish and a Christian. Our feast should be clearly distinguished from the other two feasts.
In my article entitled "How Could Jesus Have Spent Three Days and Three Nights in the Tomb?" I expounded my views on the chronology of Jesus's death and resurrection. If the facts mentioned and supported by evidence in my article cannot be refuted, that would mean that Jesus died on March 25 (Nisan 15), on TUESDAY, at 03.00 p. m., 31 CE (Common Era) and was resurrected by His Father, i. e. by the Almighty God, Yahweh, on March 28 (Nisan 18), on FRIDAY, at around 06.00 p. m., 31 CE. This would necessarily rule out any debate about the day of Jesus's resurrection, if it happened on a SATURDAY or a SUNDAY, since it happened on a FRIDAY. Jesus instructed His disciples at the Last Supper when he broke the bread and lifted a cup of red wine, they should do the same in remembrance of Him. Consequently, we should only celebrate the Lord's Supper every year after sunset on March 24, whichever day it falls on.
