The First Resurrection Sunday: The Story Of Jesus Rising On The Third Day
In my more than six decades of this awesome life. I have received multiple tales of what some call the “First Easter”, or “Resurrection Sunday”.
Allow me to begin this sharing by establishing a clear delineation of “Easter” and what I have learned and recognized as “Resurrection Sunday”.
Many Christians choose to call Easter, “Resurrection Day,” or in many cases, “Resurrection Sunday”, which is more accurate due to the fact the word “Easter” is connected to a pagan goddess and pagan myths.
Many Christians have grown up with the yearly celebration of Easter, which is celebrated by decorations of bunny rabbits hanging on the walls or formed into the shape of candies, an egg hunt, and other such recognition of the pagan acknowledgement of the goddess Eostre or Ester.
Many of these traditional Easter practices are connected to the goddess Eostre. Eostre is a West Germanic pagan goddess of dawn, celebrated during the spring equinox.
Eostre is associated with fertility, spring, and flowers. Much of the traditional celebrations of Easter, such as rabbits and eggs, are associated with Eostre.
The symbols of a bunny rabbit and eggs are often associated with her because rabbits and eggs are symbols of fertility.
The practices of Eostre became mixed in with the celebration of Christ’s resurrection because it occurred during the same time of spring.
Ultimately, Christianity borrowed many practices from the celebration of Eostre and transferred them as part of their celebration of the resurrection of the Lord.
In other words, the church chose to mix both of these holidays and turn them into a Christian celebration. This was not uncommon as many Christian celebrations today have some roots in paganism, such as Christmas trees, New Year’s Day, and Valentine’s Day.

Bible Tales For Young Thoughtful Minds
Let’s begin sharing our Bible stories for youth by telling the story of the first sin. When we speak of “sin”, we are talking of an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law. In truth, a transgression against God.
Many of us have heard this story in one form or another. It was here where God put the first man, who was named Adam, in what became known as the Garden of Eden.
Adam was put in the garden to farm the land. It was made clear to him by God that in that place, he had a responsibility to take care of the garden.
God told Adam, “You can eat the fruit of any tree that is in the garden. But you must not eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. For if you do, you will surely die.”
