For the sake of those who may not see the stupidity of this, let me give you a little background on these holy days and we can reason together.
Summary of Passover Week:
- Matthew 26:2 tells that Passover (also called the Feast of Unleavened Bread) was about to begin and that during the week Jesus would be handed over to be crucified.
- The disciples prepared to have the Passover meal with Jesus (Luke 22:7-20), what we have come to call The Last Supper.
- That same evening, Jesus was arrested (John 18:1-12) and later was crucified (John 19). The day Jesus was crucified is what is known today as Good Friday.
- Three days after they had placed Jesus' body in the tomb, He was resurrected (Mark 16:1-8). Easter is the celebration of Christ's resurrection.
The order of events, then, is: Passover, The Last Supper, Good Friday, and Easter. So, again, I will ask the question: Who decided that, every few years, Easter should be before Passover? It makes no historical sense! That's because it isn't based on history, but the lunar cycle.
Now, I could try to go into all of it, but after doing some research it gave me such a headache that I just decided to let you look it up for yourself. You can read about how Easter Sunday date is determined and about the difference between the Gregorian and Julian calendars. And more information can be found relating to the Hebrew Calendar.
Have fun with that.
