Is Easter Taught In The Bible ? Answer
The origin of Easter. The great church historian Mosheim tells us "Easter began in the second century (Mosheim's Institutes of Eccl. History, pg. 73). The council of Nicea, 325 A. D. ruled that Easter was to be universally celebrated on the same Sunday. Easter is Judaistic and paganistic in its origin. Some maintain "Easter" is derived from Eostre or ostara, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring. Acts 12: 4 (KJV) is an unfortunate translation. The word is Passover, not Easter (Easter, as such, was unknown in the first century).
Beloved, Paul warned against observing "days, and months, and times, and years" (Gal. 4: 10). There were religious events unauthorized by God. The scriptures say nothing of Christmas and Easter. They are post-apostolic; hence, unauthorized by God's word (see Gal. 1: 6-9; Rev. 22: 18,19). Christmas and Easter owe their beginning to man, not God.
