  16. Good Friday - Easter Sunday: It Doesn't Fit With the Bible! (l) - Jesus Christ said He would be entombed for three days and three nights. Can this be reconciled with a "Good Friday" crucifixion and burial and an "Easter Sunday" resurrection, which allows for barely a day and a half in the tomb? Or do the Gospels spell out a surprising, simpler solution that fits perfectly with what Jesus foretold?
  17. How Christian Is Easter? (l) - Soon up to 2 billion people will celebrate one of the world's most popular religious holidays -- Easter. But curiously, the Bible nowhere promotes such an observance. Where did this day come from? How did it become so popular? And is it even Christian?
  18. What Easter Doesn't Tell You (l) - Could it be that Easter traditions leave something missing in the story of Jesus Christ?

  25. How Easter replaced the biblical Passover (l) - Why did Easter replace the Passover?
  26. Three days and three nights (l) - The choice of a Sunday date for Easter is based on the assumption that Christ rose from the grave early on a Sunday morning. The popular belief is that Christ was crucified on a Friday and rose on a Sunday. But neither of these suppositions is true. A close reading of the Bible makes that quite clear.
  27. We need a Savior (l) - A main theme in the Bible is sin, which is defined in the Bible as the violation of God's law (1 John 3:4Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law., King James Version), and our need for forgiveness and reconciliation to God (the theme of the biblically commanded Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread).
  28. What's the Rest of the Story about Easter? (l) - As we have seen, Easter and its customs did not come from the Bible, but from pagan fertility rites.

Have you ever wondered why eggs and rabbits - the popular hallmarks of Easter - were selected as symbols of fertility?
  32. The Resurrection Connection (l) - How did worship of an ancient god and goddess come to be associated with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ? Although the details are lost in time, a closer look at the ancient mythology surrounding their worship will help us understand how pagan practices have survived in popular Easter customs.
  33. God's Days of Worship (l) - Observances that are rooted in paganism break the first two of the Ten Commandments. Is God pleased when people claim to worship Him by adopting celebrations of pagan gods and goddesses in man-made holidays while they ignore His commanded days and ways of worship?

  44. Does Easter Really Commemorate Jesus Christ's Resurrection? (l) - What do rabbits and eggs have to do with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ? Where did the name Easter originate? This holiday isn't even mentioned in the Bible-so where did it really come from?

  46. Would Jesus Keep Easter? (l) - For millions of people Easter Sunday is the most important religious observance of the year. But, if Jesus walked the dusty roads of Galilee today, would he keep Easter?
