Easter also called the Resurrection Sunday, is taking place Sunday.
Easter is linked to the Passover and Exodus from Egypt recorded in the Old Testament through the Last Supper, Sufferings and crucifixion of Jesus that preceded the resurrection. According to the New Testament, Jesus gave the Passover meal a new meaning, as the upper room during the Last Supper he prepared himself and his disciples for his death. He identified the matzah and cup of wine as his body soon to be sacrificed and his blood soon to be shed. Paul states, “Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed”; this refers to the Passover requirement to have no yeast in the house and to the allegory of Jesus as the Paschal lamb.
The Last Supper celebrated by Jesus and his disciples. The early Christians too would have celebrated this meal to commemorate Jesus’ death and subsequent resurrection.
In the modern day and age, Easter Bunny is a symbol for Easter.
The symbol originated with the pagan festival of Easter. The goddess Easter was worshipped by the Anglo-Saxons through her earthly symbol, the rabbit. Traditional Easter games and customs developed, such as egg rolling, egg tapping, Pace egging and egg decorating.
