What is Holy Week | Easter Sunday

April 11, 2019 0 Share


Easter is also referred to as “resurrection Sunday”, the pinnacle of Holy week.  The first definite record of the celebration of Christian Easter is in connection with the visit of Polycarp (the bishop of Smyrna) to Anicetus (the bishop of Rome) in 154 or 155. Much later, and after much dispute, the celebration of Easter being cemented on a Sunday would officially commence at a council meeting in 314.  Hereafter, Easter serves as the sobering reality that Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection carved a pathway for all of mankind into heaven. That if mankind would only put their hope and faith in Jesus, then they would be with Him in glory one day!
