Should Christians celebrate Easter or Passover? Does it even matter? In this article, I'm going to let history and the Bible answer both of those questions. Once you have all the information, you can decide for yourself. If you're a follower of the Way and a student of the Book, you should want to know and you should care. After all, it's not about how we feel or what we want but how the Creator feels and what He desires. And that's what we're after: following after His heart on the matter.
DID JESUS REALLY DIE ON GOOD FRIDAY?
For almost 1800 years now, one myth has been more promulgated more than any other: the idea of "Good Friday." The idea that Christ died on a Friday and rose on Sunday goes as far back as the Catholic Church itself. In this article we're going to uncover how this error came about, discover the real day He died, and reveal exactly when He rose from the grave as the redemptive Savior of all mankind.
Many of you know that we are entering into the season of Passover, which means we have the opportunity to remember the story of what Yahweh did for His people and how He saved them from suffering. But it’s also a good time to do a Spiritual “check” of our temples to make sure that they are clean, pure, righteous and holy for our King. We should want to make sure that every ounce of sin in our life is confessed and out of our lives. Anything that is unclean needs to be purged out. We should always strive to have a clean temple, but this is the time of year when we truly recognize who we are and who we can be through Yeshua. He died for our sins, to wipe them clean. Let us make sure to honor Him by thanking Him for freedom and mercy during this time.
