Today's Gospel belongs to the empty-tomb tradition. On Magdalene's urging,
Peter and John run to the tomb, find it empty, and come to at least an initial belief
about the resurrection of Jesus. We do not believe that God simply revived Jesus'
corpse in the tomb, as our driver resuscitated the bunny in today's story. Easter
Sunday does not celebrate the resuscitation of Jesus, but his resurrection. We
know his glorified body was not the same as his human body because Jesus'
presence ...

But the story of one little rabbit wasn't important enough to get remembered as
the wonderful news about our Lord Jesus and His resurrection was told over and
over. Down through the centuries, and all over the world, as the story is told,
people in every generation and from everywhere encounter the Risen Lord in
their hearts and come to know that the message of the Angel is true, even though
they cannot meet him on the path as those friends of His did that first Easter. So

Think about it for a moment. What do bunny rabbits and eggs have in common?
After all, rabbits don't plop out eggs, as chickens do. They have baby bunnies at a
rapid rate. Eggs, of course, are part of the reproduction process. That is why
people today decorate eggs. They signify fertility, not the death and resurrection
of Jesus. There is no record in Scripture of the apostles of Jesus ever celebrating
Easter as we know it today. When Jesus rose from the dead, His followers did not
find ...

Colleen Criswell. That is what I most remember about Easter, the traditions we
had and still have in our family. Of course, that is not the only event happening on
Easter. Christianity claims this day as the resurrection of Jesus Christ – their
savior. But how do bunnies, eggs and Jesus death and resurrection fit together?

When we celebrate Easter, we honor and remember the death and resurrection

For example Mithra, Dionysus, Cybele, Ishtar, and Horus are all deities or
supernatural characters from pre-Christian religions who have similar
resurrection stories. When Christianity started to spread, local customs, traditions,
and sometimes even characters from folklore were incorporated into the narrative
they were preaching. Of course if Horus rose from the dead after three days, so
didJesus! If you look in the bible, nowhere will you find reference to the word "
Easter", so where did ...

What an appropriate connection between Christmas and Easter, for those paper
angels who came to me at Christmas to announce the birth of the God man,
Jesus, are now proclaiming his tragic death! ... And the baby chick with bunny
ears, which is not the ordinary image we have, attempts to convey the glorified
body, far beyond our imagination, we will experience when we are fully
incorporated into the Resurrection we now celebrate and commemorate at Easter

Yet man putsJesus second on two of the most important events for the Church to
pay Him the respect that He deserves: the celebration of his birth and his
resurrection. When will we stop disrespecting Jesus by putting Santa and a
bunny in front of Christ? Did He not suffer enough on the cross? Jesus deserves
a lot more respect and honor than we give him.This great plan of salvation came
from God! He has given us the task of bringing all who will come to Him through
his son,Jesus ...

When the feast time finally arrived, eggs were dyed red to remind people of the
joy of Christ's resurrection. The hard shell of the egg reminded some people of
the tomb which "broke open" when Jesus rose from the dead. And the Easter
bunny? His origin is even harder to trace! Bunnies are known to spend the winter
in dark, tomblike holes and then emerge full of joy and gladness in the spring. In
any case, these two traditions were brought together as one. They are fun
traditions, ...
