Question of the day: Easter
I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday today. Depending on where you work, you may have even gotten the day off work as I did. I’m looking forward to a relaxing day, while hoping to get caught up on a few things.
Last week we kicked off a new series of questions as found in Dr. Sam Gipp’s book “The Answer Book.”* I think we’re off to a good start already.
And as I said before, the point of these questions is not to start a Baptist War, but rather encourage everyone to engage in a discussion and learn from and among fellow believers.
Last week I also said that I don’t want you to rely on “he said, she said” or even unconfirmed history. Read your Bible, study accurate accounts of History, pray about it, and take what you don’t understand by faith.
As you know, the Tuesday following each QOTD post I will post Dr. Gipp’s written answer. So be sure to look for that tomorrow.
Here’s the question for today…
Isn’t “Easter” in Acts 12:4 a mistranslation of the word “pascha” and should it be translated as “passover”?
Thoughts? Opinions? Scriptures to back your position?
