Jewish Passover Table

Jewish Passover TablePassover was the festival which commemorated the escape of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Christians in Asia Minor celebrated Easter at the same time as the Jewish Passover because of this. For Jews, the Passover was a time for family gatherings. They wished each other "Happy Passover," as Christians wish each other "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Easter."

Israelites From Slavery

According to John Foster in "The First Advance, Church History 1, AD 29-500," Christians began their "14th Nisan" with a solemn fast, remembering the Crucifixion, and ended that same day with joyful Eucharist, to mark the Resurrection. How is Sunday true to its roots in your Christian Community?
