The Bible makes no mention of Easter or Easter Monday. There is no requirement as a church to celebrate it, but there is prohibition either.
Easter Monday as we know is the day after Christ’s resurrection where he said for 40 days appearing to believers and giving ministry. He also healed the sick and proved to doubter’s he was the son of God.
Easter Monday, also called Bright Monday or Renewal Monday, is the beginning of Bright Week. It is common to douse people in water, representing the new life of baptism, and play games with Easter eggs. Such as Easter egg hunt or rolling your a hard boiled egg down a hill (which represents the stone being rolled away).
Ever wondered what the crucifixion was like?
I came across this video last night in preparation for today and found it very interesting and thought I would share it now that Easter is over and Jesus is Risen!
The video tells us that before actually whipping Jesus the Romans attached broken glass ,nails bone or lead weights to the whip. Can you imagine the suffering and pain that must of caused and how weak it must of made him before he had to make that journey with the cross. The bible tells us that Jesus was crucified at a placed called Golgotha or ‘Skull’ (a small hill shaped like a bears skull). It tells us crosses were shorter than thought and placed at eye level This was to let onlookers see the consequences of opposing Rome. It is interesting what was found by archaeologists in 1968.
