From Passover to Easter
Studies on the Feasts Volume I
Author: Derek White
Product code: BT25
Part of a study series which helps individuals or groups explore the Biblical Feasts in the light of their New Covenant fulfilment. Discover in this 5 session guide how Easter fulfils Passover both in its timing and meaning.
The majority of Christians regard ‘Easter' as a purely Christian invention, although some zealous believers may get tied up with its pagan associations and reject it altogether. Both of these impressions are wrong.
This study looks for answers to such questions as:
- Where did Easter come from?
- Why is it held at this time of year?
- Where in the Bible are we told to celebrate it?
- Has it any connection with the Old Testament?
It will take you through an exciting adventure into Scripture and give a greater understanding of this important feast from a Biblical point of view. Suitable for individuals or small group study.
