One Holiday for Two Religions or Two Different Holidays? Equal Gravity of Passover and Easter.

Passover and Easter are holidays of equal gravity. Step by step, they bring to light the deep structures of both Judaism and Christianity religions. Passover and Easter fall early in the spring every year.

Church tradition held that the resurrection occurred on a Sunday. In 325 AD, the First Council of Nicaea decided to celebrate Easter on the first Sunday, after the first full moon, and after the vernal equinox. As a result, Easter did not have a fixed date but tended to be close to the full moon. This date always fell on the 15th of the Hebrew month of Nissan, the start of Passover.

There are many differences between Passover and Easter, but there is also a lot in common between them. And this common lies at the very basis of the holidays. The main characters change, and traditions adapt. But the essence remains the same. Now is the time to explore and learn more.
