In this post, why Jesus will not celebrate Easter and why you should not as well.
Easter is no doubt one of the most popular Christian celebrations today. In fact, most people won’t consider you as a Christian if you don’t celebrate Easter!
However, did you know that if this is the standard people use now, the first Being who will not be considered a Christian would be Jesus Christ (Yahshua the Messiah) Himself!
Yes, you read that right.
Because Jesus will NEVER celebrate.
If you don’t believe me, here are 3 biblical reasons why Jesus will not celebrate Easter.
1. Jesus wasn’t resurrected on Sunday
We all know why the Christian world calls it Easter SUNDAY. Most Christians believe that Yahshua or Jesus was resurrected on Sunday.
Nevertheless, Jesus, Himself, said that He will be in the heart of the earth for 3 days and 3 nights:
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth (Matthew 12:40:).
Now, how can you fit the Easter narrative that Christ was entombed just before sunset on Friday and was risen before the sun rose on Sunday?
Answer: No, you can’t.
The traditional Easter story only allows about 1 ½ days for Christ to be in the tomb!
So, if not on Sunday, when was Yahshua resurrected?

2. Jesus will not celebrate a pagan festival
Did you know that Easter wasn’t actually from the Bible? As shocking as it may sound, Easter actually came from a pagan way of worship!
Here’s what the History Channel has to say about the origin of Easter:
“However, in English-speaking languages and Germany, some historians have argued the word derives from a pagan springtime goddess called Ēostre, who is documented by an Anglo-Saxon monk who wrote during the 8th century AD. Ēostre was a goddess celebrated with a festival during the spring equinox and according to some scholars, her association with hares is the origin of the Easter Bunny story, although this is still hotly debated.”
What about the rabbits and eggs that are commonly associated with Easter? Where did it come from? The same source explains:
“Rabbits and hares have long been an ancient symbol of fertility and life, given their prolific ability to procreate. They are the perfect icons for spring and all that it represents. However, it took until the 17th century before a German tradition about an Easter hare, known as the Osterhase, which delivered eggs to good children caught on. The softer, more amenable looking bunny eventually replaced the hare as the tradition spread across the U.S. via German immigrants during the 1700s.”
The Bible is clear when it comes to pagan worship (Deuteronomy 12:29-32):
29 “When the LORD your God cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land, 30 take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ 31 You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way; for every abomination to the LORD which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.
32 “Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.

3. Jesus celebrated Passover not Easter
Not known to many, Satan created Easter to divert the focus of many people from the true Festival of God. That’s why you will never read Jesus celebrating Easter or had commanded His followers to do so.
Instead, we read that Jesus Celebrated Passover instead!
We read of that in Matthew 26:17-25, Mark 14:12–21; and Luke 22:7–13.
If you want to learn more about the difference between Passover and Easter, please read, “Passover versus Easter: A Brief and Comprehensive Comparison.”
So, will Jesus celebrate Easter?
He will never celebrate it because Easter makes Jesus a liar. Easter is also rooted in paganism. Finally, Jesus celebrated God-ordained Passover rather than Easter, which is based on human traditions.
Now, that you know the truth, will you follow Jesus (Yahshua) or your pastor?
