I know all or most of you on here are Christians, so thinking like an atheist won't come easy. But just suppose you are one, and someone posted the following, and put your name where the blanks are, what kind of reaction do you think you would have? I was taken aback _____ ____ by your question about celebrating Passover and Easter. So I wanted to check my facts before I posted an answer. Passover was instituted back in the old testament book of Exodus, when the Jewish people were leaving Egypt. .Ex 12:1 ¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,.......Read all the way down, especially verse 47. This is an old testament thing for the Jews. ( Ex 12:47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it ) We (Gentiles) are not required to observe it. We celebrate the death and Resurrection of Jesus on Resurrection Sunday, (Easter). The two holidays are not connected, that's why they are not celebrated at the same time. It is not even a requirement that celebrate either one of these. We can celebrate if we want to but, the most important this is that we believe in Him and try to live for Him.. Jesus. We as Christians have a NEW COVENANT and are not under the law of having to do all the hundreds of things the Jews were (are) required to do. I would appreciate your comments.
