Updated, April 14, 2017- SHOULD CHRISTIANS CELEBRATE EASTER? - Two Views Part 1

Updated: Friday, April 14, 2017
As always, I agonizingly want to search out the history and real history and/or meaning of many festivals and holidays we grew up celebrating. In the last few years, we have felt similar to what Lea does in the video below and even after what we learned today, still concur that paganism is at the root of this particular time of year. That passover would be the perfect way to follow the specific time period, of the resurrection of Jesus, because that is a celebration done every year, even to this day, ever  since the Israelites exodus out of Egypt.

Well, Today as my husband and I discussed why only the King James Translation, uses the pagan word (so we had learned up until that point) Easter in Acts 12:4.  Since the original Greek word used is Pascha , which from Greek to English has been translated to Passover, not Easter. That word only appears once, in the KJV,  and every where else in the KJV, the word Passover  is used. In other translations, the word Passover is used in every occurrence.
What was confusing, is how the KJV only folks, say Herod meant the pagan festival Easter and not Passover, trying to justify why Easter is used (because it is pagan after all). But, the more we researched this, the more their explanation did not match Scripture. That is always our plumb line. Here is a decent article we found about the origins of the word Easter." Ask God for guidance, He leads us into all Truth.
Remember this always, as we are asked by Jesus....


Out Of Interest, here is a link to the Jewish Calendar. Much different from ours.



"Disclaimer: Don't watch If you aren't ready. Once you have information, Yahweh holds you in account for what you do with it. 

Deuteronomy 12:29-32(KJV) When the Lord thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land; Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods. What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
