The True Meaning of Easter
become a time of easter bunnies, easter eggs, and chocolate; don't lose
of the real meaning of Easter, namely the Crucifixion and Resurrection
the Son of God
A Christian feast commemorating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is observed on the first Sunday following the full moon occurring on or next after March 21. The word Easter originated from the saxon word "Eostre", the goddess of the Saxons, in whose name sacrifies were offered about the time of the Passover. Easter Day is currently determined as the first Sunday after the full moon on or just after March 21.
The real meaning of Easter is to celebrate the fact that 2,000 years ago Christ was crucified (put to death by nailing his wrists and feet to a cross). He then was laid to rest in a tomb but after three days he was resurrected (rose from the dead) .
Good Friday denotes Jesus' crucifixion and Easter Sunday denotes his resurrection. The tomb in Jerusalem remains empty. Jesus lives, and since he died for your sins, so can you live, eternally!.
"For God so loved
that He gave His only begotten Son;
that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish,
but have everlasting life."
