4-3-2017 The Bible Easter

“Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also. Now it was during the Days of Unleavened Bread. So when he had arrested him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to keep him, intending to bring him before the people after Passover” (Acts 12:1-4 NKJV). In Moses’ Law, the “Days of Unleavened Bread” were associated with “Passover.” “Easter” is the name of an idol goddess, and purely pagan in nature, and not “Christian.”  The word “Easter” does not translate “Passover,” but is an Anglo-Saxon calendar word, not in the Bible! John commanded “keep yourselves from idols” (1 John 5:21 NKJV), and Christians never celebrate an “Easter.”
