Origins of Easter
According to the New Testament for the Bible, the Romans crucified Jesus Christ around AD 30 And I died on the cross on a Friday and was buried in a tom outside of Jerusalem.
Three days later, on Sunday, I rose from the dead, according to Matthew 28:1-10.
Christians celebrate their resurrection each year on Easter Sunday, after 40 days of Lent.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends with Holy Week, including Palm Sunday, we remember how Jesus entered Jerusalem.
Maundy Thursday honors the Last Supper, Good Friday recalls the day Jesus was crucified, and Holy Saturday is the time of transition between crucifixion and resurrection.
The dey of Easter is known as Pascha in di Orthodox Church. Pascha na di Greek word for “Passover”.
The Dey Orthodox Church celebrates “the Eternal Passover from death to life from heaven to earth”.
Great Lent, the strictest fasting time for the church, lasts 40 days and ends eight days before Easter on Lazarus Saturday – when Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead, according to Eastern Orthodoxy.
Palm Sunday and Holy Week follow, with the fast continuing until Easter. Orthodox Easter always follows the Jewish holiday of Passover.
Many historians, citing an 8th century monk and an Anglo-Saxon scholar of the Venerable Bede for “The Calculation of Time”, believe they are saying Easter’s name from Eostre, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring and fertility.
They are always depicted in designs surrounded by hares and are believed to be worshiped at pagan festivals.
The Anglo-Saxons also call the month of April Eostre-monath.
