“EASTER” is not a Bible term,  and its observance as a special  religious day did not come until  hundreds of years later. The early  disciples had the communion,  Lords Supper, on the first day  of every week (resurrection day)  in memory of Christ’s blood and  body given on the cross (Acts 20:7:  I Cor 11:23-29).

The first day of every “week  has always been associated with  Christianity. It was the day Jesus  arose from the dead, the day the  Holy Spirit came, the day the gospel  was first preached when 3,000 were  baptized (immersed) for forgiveness  of sins (Acts 2). After that memorable  day of Pentecost, the disciples  “continued steadfastly in the apostles’  doctrine, in fellowship, in the breaking  of bread and in prayer” (Acts 2:42).  No other special day was observed

Paul warned against observance of  “special days” (Gal. 4:10-11). In 1611  the word “pascha” was translated 28  times as Passover (a Jewish holy day)  and only one time as Easter. Since  Easteris of pagan origin, its observance  date is unknown (Mosheim History,  p 135-6). Informed Christians do not  observe pagan “Easter.”
