Since Christ did not resurrect on a sunday why are so many celebrating pagan traditions?

Since Christ was Crucified on a Thursday which coincides with the jewish holiday and pass over. And he resurrected on Saturday(the sabbath) why is world still celebrating old pagan traditions with such mis information.

  1. Mark 16:2
    (2) And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

  2. Jesus is nothing more than a character in a fairy tale.

    Every major aspect of the christian mind control cult was taken from the so-called pagan cults. The virginal birth, the death, the resurrection, and even your beloved cross were ALL taken from the pagan cults that predate the christian cult by hundreds, if not thousands, of years.

  3. WOW — He was? to the best of our historical understanding with the Passover taking place on THursday He was celebrating the Passover meal when He was taken and thus crucified the next day on FRIDAY and resurrected on Sunday. He was not crucified ON the passover

  4. Christ is crucified @ Wednesday and he resurrected on a Sunday…

    3nights n 3 days ……it suits perfectly…

  5. He did not resurrect on the sabbath. I dont know where you got that from. He was placed into the tomb within 3 hours before the sabbath began.

    Jesus rose on the first day.
    He ate the passover meal, therefor he could not have died on Wednesday.

    The days, other than a theological argument, are not that important….the simple fact is that He rose from the grave and defeated death….Period.

  6. I am an Atheist, but was raised Christian…not your average type of Christianity either. I think Easter, even though Pagan, is just symbolic to Christians. We participated in Passover, not Easter b/c of it’s Pagan origins. No, we were not Jewish. If I remember correctly we also participated in “7 days of unleavened bread” during Passover week too. I remember thinking how weird it was for the adults to be washing each others feet, but whatever, I don’t believe any of it now. But in my opinion, even though I hated it growing up, this church was correct in it’s teaching according exactly to the bible and did things exactly like the bible stated. Not like the “typical” churches around today. This church does still exist, but I have no part in it.

  7. It’s a story, copy paste over pagan traditions. Jesus’ story has a common theme in many religions as well.

  8. I believe that He was crucified on a Wednesday and that He rose some time in the middle of the night between Saturday and Sunday. The Bible says nothing about the crucifixion taking place on a Friday and indeed it would have been strange to arrange it knowing that there was so little time in which to complete the task. Moreover, this was a special week with an additional day of preparation for the Sabbath, as Scripture does explain. We cannot say precisely when Our Lord rose. What the Bible tells us is that He had already risen by dawn on the Sunday. http://ad2004.com/prophecytruths/Articles/Prophecy/3days3nights.html

    The Church at some point decided to make a week of it, starting with Palm Sunday, and Good Friday is the day on which people will continue to commemorate the death of Our Lord, argue as one may.

  9. 1. The bible is quite clear that he died on Friday and rose on Sunday.

    2. Your premise has no logical connection with your conclusion so the question cannot be answered.

  10. There are people who know because they “experience” and apply reason, logic, and common sense (which isn’t common any more).

    Then there are people who think they know because someone told them.

  11. First day in a Jewish calender is Sunday…..and Jesus was resurrected on the first day –Matthew 28:1-8

  12. The bible clearly says Jesus resurrected AFTER the Sabbath Day:

    Matthew 28:1-3
    1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
    2There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.

    Mark 16:1-7
    1When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. 2Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
    4But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
    6″Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’ “

  13. Technically, anyone “celebrating” the four day weekend isn’t celebrating a Pagan festival, after all, the full moon was on Thursday.
    There’s no harm in pointing out a seeming aberration, but not having your facts in order may lead you to look as though you haven’t done your research.

  14. I have a problem with people who start a religion on one Bible verse, like the SDA’s. There’s a lot more to the Bible than the 4th commandment, my friend. I like the SDA’s but we really need to look at the whole picture, the main thing is that we celebrate Easter even if the date is one day out. Yes most Christians have kept the Pagan Roman Sunday as the Lords Day, we hope that God will forgive us for this.
    I blame it all on the Roman Catholic Church, She is corrupt and She is drunk on the blood of Saints.
