1) the paschal sacrifice (which was accustomed to be offered for the people’s deliverance of old from Egypt)Did You Know??
18And Paul, having tarried after this yet many days, took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence for Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila: having shorn his head in Cenchreae; for he had a vow. 19And they came to Ephesus, and he left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews. 20And when they asked him to abide a longer time, he consented not;
17And when we were come to Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly. 18And the day following Paul went in with us unto James; and all the elders were present. 19And when he had saluted them, he rehearsed one by one the things which God had wrought among the Gentiles through his ministry. 20And they, when they heard it, glorified God; and they said unto him, Thou seest, brother, how many thousands there are among the Jews of them that have believed; and they are all zealous for the law: 21and they have been informed concerning thee, that thou teachest all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children neither to walk after the customs. 22What is it therefore? They will certainly hear that thou art come. 23Do therefore this that we say to thee: We have four men that have a vow on them; 24these take, and purify thyself with them, and be at charges for them, that they may shave their heads: and all shall know that there is no truth in the things whereof they have been informed concerning thee; but that thou thyself also walkest orderly, keeping the law. 25But as touching the Gentiles that have believed, we wrote, giving judgment that they should keep themselves from things sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what is strangled, and from fornication. 26Then Paul took the men, and the next day purifying himself with them went into the temple, declaring the fulfilment of the days of purification, until the offering was offered for every one of them.
1 Corinthians 11:17-21
17But in giving you this charge, I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better but for the worse. 18For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that divisions exist among you; and I partly believe it. 19For there must be also factions among you, that they that are approved may be made manifest among you. 20When therefore ye assemble yourselves together, it is not possible to eat the Lord’s supper: 21for in your eating each one taketh before other his own supper; and one is hungry, and another is drunken.Perversion Of Original Observance
Luke 22:14-2014And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the apostles with him. 15And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: 16for I say unto you, I shall not eat it, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 17And he received a cup, and when he had given thanks, he said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: 18for I say unto you, I shall not drink from henceforth of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come. 19And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and gave to them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 20And the cup in like manner after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood, even that which is poured out for you.

The Council of Nice, 325 AD, decreed that it should be on
Sunday, but it did not fix the particular Sunday. It was left to
The Bishop of Alexandria to determine, since that city was
Regarded as the authority in astronomical matters and he was
To communicate to the other bishops.

“But this was not satisfactory, esp. to the western churches, and a
Definite rule for the determination of Easter was needed. By some
It was kept as early as March 21, and by others as late as April 25,
And others followed dates between. The rule was finally adopted,
In the 7th century, to celebrate Easter on the Sunday following the
14th day of the calendar moon which comes on or after, the vernal
Equinox which was fixed for March 21.This is not always the
Astronomical moon, but near enough for practical purposes, and is
Determined without astronomical calculation by certain intricate
Rules adopted by ecclesiastical authority.”

“With the advent of Christianity, the egg, still taken as a symbol of life, was simply borrowed to be a symbol of the Christian holiday.”
“The earliest Easter eggs were dyed red to represent the blood shed by Christ.”
“Many cultures celebrated the advent of spring down through history. When Christianity came along about 2,000 years ago, there was already a number of pagan celebrations in place.”
“People rarely discard a holiday. When a new system of beliefs comes along, you simply come up with a new mythic structure to explain why you are celebrating that holiday in the first place.”
Orlando Sentinel, 4/15/87 by William Heim
8Howbeit at that time, not knowing God, ye were in bondage
to them that by nature are no gods: 9but now that ye have
come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how turn
ye back again to the weak and beggarly rudiments, whereunto
ye desire to be in bondage over again? 10Ye observe days,
and months, and seasons, and years. 11I am afraid of you,
lest by any means I have bestowed labor upon you in vain.
4Ye are severed from Christ, ye who would be justified by the
law; ye are fallen away from grace.
18And Paul, having tarried after this yet many
days, took his leave of the brethren, and sailed
thence for Syria, and with him Priscilla and
Aquila: having shorn his head in Cenchreae; for
he had a vow.
13And this is the law of the Nazirite, when the
days of his separation are fulfilled: he shall be
brought unto the door of the tent of meeting:
14and he shall offer his oblation unto Jehovah,
one he-lamb a year old without blemish for a
burnt-offering, and one ewe-lamb a year old
without blemish for a sin-offering, and one ram
without blemish for peace-offerings, 15and a
basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour
mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers
anointed with oil, and their meal-offering, and
their drink-offerings. 16And the priest shall
present them before Jehovah, and shall offer his
sin-offering, and his burnt-offering:
1 Corinthians 9:19-20
19For though I was free from all men, I
brought myself under bondage to all, that
I might gain the more. 20And to the Jews
I became as a Jew, that I might gain Jews;
to them that are under the law, as under
the law, not being myself under the law,
that I might gain them that are under the
law;Was Paul Inconsistent??
16For Paul had determined to sail past Ephesus,
that he might not have to spend time in Asia;
for he was hastening, if it were possible for
him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost.
And he came also to Derbe and to Lystra: and
behold, a certain disciple was there, named
Timothy, the son of a Jewess that believed;
but his father was a Greek. 2The same was
well reported of by the brethren that were at
Lystra and Iconium. 3Him would Paul have to
go forth with him; and he took and
circumcised him because of the Jews that
were in those parts: for they all knew that his
father was a Greek.
23Do therefore this that we say to thee: We have four men
that have a vow on them; 24these take, and purify thyself
with them, and be at charges for them, that they may shave
their heads: and all shall know that there is no truth in the
things whereof they have been informed concerning thee;
but that thou thyself also walkest orderly, keeping the law.
Acts 15:1, 5
1And certain men came down from Judaea and
taught the brethren, saying, Except ye be
circumcised after the custom of Moses, ye
cannot be saved.
5But there rose up certain of the sect of the
Pharisees who believed, saying, It is needful to
circumcise them, and to charge them to keep
the law of Moses.
16Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or
in drink, or in respect of a feast day or a new
moon or a sabbath day: 17which are a shadow
of the things to come; but the body is Christ’s.
13Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge ye this rather, that no man put a
stumblingblock in his brother’s way, or an occasion
of falling. 14I know, and am persuaded in the Lord
Jesus, that nothing is unclean of itself: save that to
him who accounteth anything to be unclean, to him
it is unclean. 15For if because of meat thy brother is
grieved, thou walkest no longer in love. Destroy not
with thy meat him for whom Christ died. 16Let not
then your good be evil spoken of: 17for the kingdom
of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness
and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18For he that
herein serveth Christ is well-pleasing to God, and
approved of men. 19So then let us follow after things
which make for peace, and things whereby we may
edify one another.Application To Easter
4Who art thou that judgest the servant of another?
to his own lord he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall
be made to stand; for the Lord hath power to make
him stand. 5One man esteemeth one day above
another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let
each man be fully assured in his own mind. 6He
that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord:
and he that eateth, eateth unto the Lord, for he
giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, unto
the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
7But in vain do they worship me, Teaching as their
doctrines the precepts of men. 8Ye leave the
commandment of God, and hold fast the tradition
of men. 9And he said unto them, Full well do ye
reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep
3Let not him that eateth set at nought him that
eateth not; and let not him that eateth not judge
him that eateth: for God hath received him.
