The TRUTH ABOUT THE WORD “EASTER”

THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE IN THE BIBLE WE FIND THE WORD” Easter,” I have read behind many commentators on this word, “Easter” and most of them say something along the line, that it’s a miss translation, but that is not so, the HOLY SPIRIT had the holy men that pen down the bible put exactly what HE wanted them to pen down. Listen as we get into today’s message.

ACTS 12:4 1Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. 2And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)***

4And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people. ---Passover--- has already passed.

We are approaching the time of year that most people know as the Easter season, well I certainly am not here to burst anyone’s Easter bubble, but I am here to tell the truth to the best of my ability, so let me say that Easter has absolutely nothing to do with the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, the word Easter is as pagan as it gets, its derived from the pagan goddess “ Ishtar” or “astoreth” a so called female deity which is as false a deity as they come.

To us who are sincere believers in the resurrection of our WONDERFUL LORD & SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, IT’S THE TIME OF YEAR WE Recognize His

RESSURRECTION, NOT A SO CALLED [ASTOREtH] OR ~EASTER~ IS WHAT ITS CALLED TODAY.

Listen as I read the text again;

ACTS 12:4 1Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. 2And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

4And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

I want us to notice in vs. 3, it says, “then were the days of unleavened bread”

Let us be aware that the days of unleavened bread, does not began until the Jewish Passover has run it’s coarse.

Lev. 23: 4These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons. 5In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD’S passover. 6And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.

Listen careful as I read the text vss. Once more,

ACTS 12:4 1Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. 2And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

notice we,re told here in vs 3, (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

Well we know that lev.23: 5-6 tells us, 5In the “fourteenth day” of the first month at even is the LORD’S passover. 6And on the “fifteenth day”of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.

Pastor Brown, it's been eight years since you shared this message, but I only just now read it. I would like to share my thoughts on this particular word usage in Acts 12:4. I am a KJB user to the core, and I love this Bible. I am also Independent Baptist. However, in the Textus Receptus, from which the New Testament of the KJB was translated, the word for Easter is πάσχα, or "pascha." This the same word used for "passover" every other time in the New Testament. Now I am entirely in agreement that we should celebrate Resurrection Sunday, not Easter (which is indeed a pagan name). What I have not figured out yet (but I will study it) is why the word Easter was inserted by translators of the King James Bible, when the Greek word is obviously "passover." Thank you for reminding us to celebrate the glorious resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, instead of searching for colored eggs.
