Church History: How Easter Passed Over Passover
Easter and Passover always coincide in spring time. Have you ever wondered about the history of the two celebrations? I have. In the following video, you will find insights from Ron Cantor into some early church history…
Some questions you might find answers to include: Firstly, what did the believers in the first few centuries celebrate? The DEATH of Yeshua or the RESURRECTION of Yeshua? Secondly, let us know what you think! We hope you enjoy it.
“Easter stalks Passover. They arrive together every spring, like the daffodils and magnolia blossoms…Over the years, I have come to see that Christianity’s most important day recapitulates Passover. Both holidays face head-on the daunting power of death—and both announce God’s greater power of life.” (source)
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” (1 Peter 1:3)
“Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.” (Romans 6:8-11)
