Happy Easter


Easter is Christian


The modern secular popular traditions surrounding Easter could be said to based on pagan fertility rights, but that says nothing about Easter in the Bible and the Truth about Easter for Bible practising Christians.

The word Easter is in one place of the Bible and is directly and only based on the Hebrew transliterated word Pascha, which refers to the Passover of the Israelites, thus does not refer to a pagan goddess like some try to suggest.

In fact, the pagan goddess is mentioned through out the Bible, in other spellings, so they knew about the false worship, and would have never started a Holy Day with her name.  Her name was Ashtoreth.

Easter in Acts 12:4.

Acts 12:1-4 KJV (1769)  Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.  (2)  And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.  (3)  And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)  (4)  And 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.

Acts 12:1-4 KJV-1611  Now about that time, Herode the King stretched foorth his hands, to vexe certaine of the Church.  (2)  And he killed Iames the brother of Iohn with the sword.  (3)  And because he saw it pleased the Iewes, hee proceeded further, to take Peter also. (Then were the dayes of vnleauened bread.)  (4)  And when hee had apprehended him, hee put him in prison, and deliuered him to foure quaternions of souldiers to keepe him, intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

Acts 12:1-4 Bishops  (1568)  At the same tyme Herode the king stretched foorth his handes to vexe certayne of the Churche.  (2)  And he killed Iames the brother of Iohn with the sworde.  (3)  And because he sawe it pleased the Iewes, he proceaded further, and toke Peter also. (Then were the dayes of sweete bread.)  (4)  And when he had caught hym, he put hym in pryson also, and delyuered hym to foure quaternions of souldiers to be kept, intendyng after Easter to bryng hym foorth to the people.


Acts 12:1-4  Third Millennium Bible (1998)  1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. 2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (This was during the Days of Unleavened Bread.) 4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to guard him, intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.


Acts 12:1-4 Darby (1884)  And at the same time, Herod the king stretched forth his hands, to afflict some of the church.  (2)  And he killed James, the brother of John, With the sword.  (3)  And seeing that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to take up Peter also. Now it was in the days of the Azymes.  (4)  And when he had apprehended him, he cast him into prison, delivering him to four files of soldiers, to be kept, intending, after the pasch, to bring him forth to the people.

Acts 12:1-4 The Scriptures 1998+  (1)  And about that time Herodes the sovereign put forth his hands to do evil to some from the assembly.  (2)  And he killed [Yaaqob] the brother of [Yohanan] with the sword.  (3)  And seeing that it was pleasing to the [Yehudim], he proceeded further to arrest [Kepha] as well – and they were the Days of Unleavened Bread.  (4)  So when he had seized him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to watch over him, intending to bring him before the people after Passover.


Acts 12:1-4  Complete Jewish Bible (1998)  1 It was around this time that King Herod began arresting and persecuting certain members of the Messianic community; 2 and he had Ya'akov, Yochanan's brother, put to death by the sword. 3 When Herod saw how much this pleased the Judeans, he went on to arrest Kefa as well. It was during the Days of Matzah, 4 so when Herod seized him, he threw him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each, with the intention of bringing him to public trial after Pesach.
