What Really Happened at ''Easter''?

Below are two resources to help in your understanding of the truth about "Easter". These are resources made available by Dr. Chuck Missler and Koinonia House. I encourage you to seriously study these articles and audio recordings, especially in this time of great doubt being cast on the Resurrection.

TRADITIONAL MYTHS:
What Really Happened at ''Easter''?


Most reasonably informed Christians are well aware that many of the traditions that surround the Christmas holidays have pagan origins and very little correlation with the actual events as recorded in the Bible. However, most of us are surprised when we discover that some of what we have been taught about “Easter” is not only in error, but deliberately so!

Many, of course, are aware that the name “Easter” actually originates with the pagan worship of Ishtar (or Astarte) that was traditionally observed at the time of the vernal equinox, nominally about March 21 or 22. Traditional pagan fertility symbols of both rabbits and eggs continue to be associated with this holiday.

However, the name as commonly used is also currently associated with the events surrounding the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, which actually occurred on the Jewish Passover and is clearly defined in the Scriptures as the 14th of Nisan.
