Is this Bible authority for Easter? This passage is _not_ talking about Easter. How do we know? The word translated _Easter_ is the Greek word _pascha_ (derived from the Hebrew word _pesach_; there is no original Greek word for_Passover_), and it has only one meaning. It _always_ means Passover—it can _never_ mean Easter! For this reason, we find a _Hebrew_ word used in the Greek New Testament. Once again, this Hebrew word can _only_ refer to Passover. And other translations, including the Revised Standard Version, correctly render this word _Passover_. Instead of endorsing Easter, this verse really proves that the Church was still observing the supposedly Jewish Passover ten years _after_ the death of Christ! Now let’s go to the _other_ scriptures authorizing Easter. This presents a problem. _There areNONE!_ There are absolutely _no_ verses, anywhere in the Bible, that authorize or endorse the keeping of Easter celebration! The Bible says nothing about Lent, eggs and egg hunts, baskets of candy, etc., although it does mention hot cross buns and sunrise services as abominations, which God condemns. We will examine them and learn why.
