Sunday, 21 April 2019 · The Easter Fish • Matthew 12:39-41
Easter, like Christmas, is a religious paradox. On the one hand, it is a Christian celebration with great biblical meaning – the birth of Christ at Christmas and the resurrection of Christ at Easter. But on the other hand, it is a pagan holiday with heathen origins and with significant mythological connections. As a result of this paradox, many Christians feel like they are on the horns of a dilemma. Since it has heathen connections, they reason, should we as Christians celebrate the holiday? (33:35)
