Christians celebrate Easter Sunday because Jesus rose from death. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the fundamental principles and beliefs of Christianity and a well documented historical fact. Christians celebrate Easter Sunday because they believe, Jesus died for their sin on the Cross on Good Friday. Jesus was buried on Friday and rose from death on Sunday. Christians believe only Jesus can give eternal life, because He overcame death.

Jesus Resurected From Death, Death did not have a hold on Jesus, He has raisen!

Look at the tomb - Its empty, Jesus has raisen!

Happy Palm Sunday to Christians

Palm Sunday
Sunday April 1, 2007
The beginning of Christian Holy Week

The Sunday before Easter is known as Palm Sunday. It is the beginning of Holy Week. It celebrates Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. Great crowds of people thronged the streets waving palm branches to welcome Him. The people shouted "Hosanna" and laid their cloaks and palm branches from the nearby trees in His path.

Jesus enters Jerusalem riding a donkey rather than a horse which signifies the peaceful nature of his entry. People are expecting a king and surrender themselves to his authority by taking their cloaks off and laying it on the ground. The Palm branches signify the expectation of a military victory of their king over the occupying Romans. Jesus is entering Jerusalem to bring Peace and forgiveness to the world by taking the sin of the world upon Himself - a Spiritual King. People are seeking a worldly and physical king.

Palm Sunday - Jesus enters Jerusalem for the last time - Sunday before Good Friday and Easter Sunday

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only
Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Gospel of John 3:16

شگفتی رستاخیز

جالب است که گرچه عیسای مسیح در هر چهار انجیل به واقعۀ رستاخیز خود اشاره کرده بود، اما گویی هیچ کس انتظار آن را نداشت. همگان بر این باور بودند که تنها با مرگ او سر و کار دارند، اما ناگهان خود را در برابر عیسای زنده یافتند و غافلگیر شدند. آری، زمانی غافلگیر می‌شویم که امری خلاف انتظار روی دهد. زمانی غافلگیر می‌شویم که پیش‌فرض‌ها، حیطۀ آگاهی، توانایی و قدرت کنترل ما نمی‌تواند پاسخگوی "امر تازه" باشد. گویی در فضای شگفتی و غافلگیری هیچ کارشناس و استادی وجود ندارد و همه تازه‌کار و ناشی هستیم. غافلگیری چنان ما را در می‌نوردد که صرفاً با بهت و حیرت نظاره‌گر امر تازه‌ای هستیم که زبان ما قادر به توصیف آن نیست و اگر هم کلامی از دهان‌مان خارج شود، تنها در ستایش این امر حیرت‌انگیز است. در ذات هرآنچه غافلگیر‌کننده است رازی وجود دارد و در رویارویی با یک راز نباید به‌دروغ وانمود کنیم که زیاد می‌دانیم و آن را شناخته‌ایم. عیسای مسیح می‌گوید، کار خدا را باید مثل بچه‌های کوچک دید و پذیرفت (مرقس ۱۰:‏۱۵). عزیزان، ما در جهانی بسر می‌بریم که بر ضد "رمز و راز" قیام کرده است. جهان ما می‌کوشد هر نوع عنصر غافلگیری را با توجیهات منطقی از خود بزداید. برای هر واقعه‌ای باید توضیح و توجیه منطقی و علمی وجود داشته باشد! به‌همین خاطر است که جهان با این نگرش راز‌ستیزانه‌ای که در پیش گرفته، به‌شدت در حال تهی شدن از رازباوری است. شگفتی و حیرت دیگر ما را غافلگیر نمی‌کند. اما برای خدا، امر خلاف انتظار مجالی است تا از این طریق باز به سراغ‌مان آمده، غافلگیرمان کند. رستاخیز عیسی، خدایی را به‌تصویر می‌کشد که عاشق شگفتی و شیفتۀ خلق بهت و حیرت است. او ما را چنان ملاقات خواهد کرد که باز می‌فهمیم چقدر کوچکیم تا دگر بار حمد و حیرت سراسر وجودمان را تسخیر کند.

Gospel of John 20:1-15
The Empty Tomb

1 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have put him!" 3 So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. 4 Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter, who was behind him, arrived and went into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, 7 as well as the burial cloth that had been around Jesus' head. The cloth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen. 8 Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. 9 (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.)

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene

10 Then the disciples went back to their homes, 11 but Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus' body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. 13 They asked her, "Woman, why are you crying?" 14 "They have taken my Lord away," she said, "and I don't know where they have put him." At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus. 15 "Woman," he said, "why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?"

The Date of Easter

Easter and the holidays that are related to it are moveable feasts, in that they do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian calendar (which follows the motion of the Sun and the seasons). Instead, they are based on a lunar calendar like that used by the Jews. At the First Council of Nicaea in 325 it was decided that Easter would be celebrated on the Sunday after the 14th day of the first lunar month of spring (in theory, the Sunday after the first full moon on or after the day of the vernal equinox). Eventually, all churches accepted the Alexandrian method of computing Easter, which set the northern hemisphere vernal equinox at 21 March (the actual equinox may fall one or two days earlier or later), and the date of the full moon was to be determined by using the Metonic cycle. A problem here is the difference between the western churches and the Eastern Orthodox Churches. The former now use the Gregorian calendar to calculate the date of Easter, while the latter still use the original Julian calendar. The World Council of Churches proposed a reform of the method of determining the date of Easter at a summit in Aleppo, Syria, in 1997. This reform would have eliminated the difference in the date between the Eastern and Western churches. The reform was due to be implemented starting in 2001, but it failed.
