Easter

The Idolatrous Festival Of Fertility goddess Esotera (aka Ishtar, Ashtoreth) Including Easter Eggs & the Easter Bunny
First Easter adopted by Hellenist Roman Christians in 325 C.E.!!!
Presented by

The Nᵊtzâr•im

('Nazarene' Jews In Ra•a•nanâ(h), Israel)

Note: the Nᵊtzâr•im are based in Ra•a•nanâ(h), Israel and are the only followers of historical Ribi Yᵊho•shua as Mâ•shiakh who have been recognized, and provide documentation, as legitimate and in good standing in the same religious community as Ribi Yᵊho•shua and his original Nᵊtzâr•im followers, the Pharisaic = moderate Orthodox Jewish community in Israel.

Few Christians have bothered to notice the contradiction between the (correct) prophecy that the Mâ•shiakh would remain in the earth a full three days and three nights (The Nᵊtzârim Reconstruction of Hebrew Matitᵊyâhu (NHM, in English) 12.40) and the (mistaken) Christian tradition (based on ignorance of Judaism) that Ribi Yᵊho•shua was buried as evening approached on the sixth day of the week and, to appeal to the pagan Roman sun-worshipers, resurrected at dawn on their Sun(god)day.

Not 3 Days & 3 Nights. Count 'em yourself!

Count 'em, that's only half the prophesied time! That should tell you that your faith has been misplaced in post-Paul Hellenist Roman goy•im Christians, not Tor•âh!!! Christian theologians avoid this contradiction by ignoring or perverting the prophecy, counting "partial days" and employing other contortions of the text to evade the conundrum. The only solid and correct solution, sealed up for the last 2,000 years, is found in an intimate knowledge of the Judaism lived and practiced by Ribi Yᵊho•shua and his original, Nᵊtzâr•im, Jewish followers and revealed only to the Nᵊtzâr•im in the messianic era. This undeniably, provably, correct revelation is explained in NHM note 28.1.1.

Grolier's Multimedia Encyclopedia notes ("Easter"):

"According to the Venerable Bede, the name Easter is derived from the pagan spring festival of the Anglo-Saxon goddess Eostre, and many folk customs associated with Easter (for example, Easter eggs) are of pagan origin." See, especially the Affair of Baal Peor. Other encyclopedias also note that long before Christ, this was the spring festival for this goddess-idol under its various translated names: Esotera / Ishtar / Astarte / Ashtoreth.

Encarta 95 Encyclopedia notes ("Easter"):

"Pre-Christian Tradition
Easter, a Christian festival, embodies many pre-Christian traditions. The origin of its name is unknown. Scholars, however, accepting the derivation proposed by the 8th-century English scholar St. Bede, believe it probably comes from Eastre, the Anglo-Saxon name of a Teutonic goddess-idol of spring and fertility, to whom was dedicated a month corresponding to April. Her festival was celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox; traditions associated with the festival survive in the Easter rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored Easter eggs, originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring, and used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts."

Coloring Easter Eggs: Pysanky

The tradition of painting Easter eggs is called pysanky. "Among Ukrainians there is a belief that the fate of the world depends upon pysanky. As long as egg decorating continues, the world will exist. Should the custom cease, evil in the guise of an ancient, vicious monster chained to a huge cliff will encompass the world and destroy it. Each year the monster's servants encircle the globe, keeping a record of the number of pysanky made. Should there be too few, the monster's chains loosen, and evil flows through the world. If there are many, the monster's chains hold taut, allowing love to conquer evil." (www.pysanka.com).

1st century Nᵊtzâr•im Jews Were Not Christians!

(Nor "Messianic" Christians)

The late Oxford scholar of history, James Parkes, as well as Professor Emeritus of Jewish Studies and Emeritus Fellow of Wolfson College, Geza Vermes, and many other eminent historians have elucidated the polar opposite natures of 1st century Nᵊtzâr•im Jews and 4th century gentile Christians and the NT. Similarly, these scholars have documented the intractably contradictory natures of Judaic Pësakh and the antithetical pagan fertility festival for Esotera (Ashtoreth, Easter). Ignoring all of this, Grolier's Multimedia Encyclopedia (loc. cit.) blunders in suggesting that the "Early Christians observed Easter on the same day as Passover." (Stated correctly: Unlike the Hellenist, Pauline, Roman goy•im Christians who observed the spring festival of the goddess Ishtar as they always had, lᵊ-ha•vᵊdil, the original Nᵊtzâr•im Jews observed Pësakh on the same, Biblically specified, day that they always had and all other Jews did, and still do.)

Hellenist Syncretism –
Reinforced by Hellenist (Christian) Redactions

Grolier's also states that "In the 2nd century [C.E.], the Christian celebration was transferred to the Sun[god]day following the 14-15 Nisan, if that day fell on a weekday" (loc. sit.). However, this wasn't yet "Easter." Nor Christian. It was the practice of some of the Tzᵊdoq•im and Samaritans.

"First Easter" in 325 C.E.

It is widely and indisputably documented that wasn't until 325 C.E. that the Church Council of Nicaea decided that Easter should be celebrated on the first Sun[god]day after the first full moon on or after the vernal equinox (03.21). Thus, the "First Easter" was in 325 C.E.!!!

Hellenist Romans Conquered & Expelled Jews in 135 C.E.

In other words, only after these native Hellenist-Roman gentile idolaters had wrested control from the Nᵊtzâr•im Jews in 135 C.E. were they able to syncretize their idolatrous festival into their own native, idolatrous Roman-Hellenist (and gentile) belief system—honoring a goddess-idol.

gods worshiped by these idolatrous Roman gentiles also included ιε-Ζευς, Iuppiter and the sun-god, Mithra — after whom they named the first day of the week – sun(god)day.

They syncretized their idolatrous fertility festival for the goddess Esotera, displacing the Judaic Pësakh, only after 135 C.E. when the gentile Roman Hellenists had wrested control from the original followers of Ribi Yᵊho•shua. Until 135 C.E., the Nᵊtzâr•im were headed by the 15th Pâ•qid Yᵊhud•âh ha-Tza•diq, who was forcibly ousted by the first gentile Roman "bishop," Marcus, in 135 C.E. in their (Hellenist Roman goy•im) paganized city of Ælia Capitolina, built over-top the ruins – which they made – of Yᵊru•shâ•layim.

The idolatrization of Yᵊru•shâ•layim into Ælia Capitolina, dedicated to ιε-Ζευς and sun worship, is complemented by the simultaneous "gentilization" of the Nᵊtzâr•im by gentiles, coinciding with the syncretization (Hellenization) of idol worship that spawned Christianity!!!

All major encyclopedias corroborate, and our books document, that even the earliest Christian Church historians recorded that not just Easter, but all of today's uniquely Christian holidays, doctrines and practices were adopted into Christianity only several centuries after the death of Ribi Yᵊho•shua , only by gentiles who were native Roman Hellenist idolaters; and only after 135 C.E.. after the Hellenist Roman gentiles forcibly wrested control from the Nᵊtzâr•im, at the same time they Hellenized Yᵊru•shâ•layim into "Ælia Capitolina"—dedicated to ιε-Ζευς- and sun-worship (and, by the way, included renaming the land wrested from the Jews, which was already a Roman-occupation, calling it for the first time "Palestine").

Changing The Times: Sha•bât to Sun[god]day

The change from Sha•bât to Sun[god]day didn't occur with "Easter." In fact, historical records show that the change from Sha•bât to Sun[god]day didn't occur until the 5th century, centuries after the death of Ribi Yᵊho•shua and centuries after idolatrous Hellenist Roman gentiles wrested control from the original followers of Ribi Yᵊho•shua in 135 C.E. in their idolatrous city of Ælia Capitolina built overtop the ruins of Yᵊru•shâ•layim.

"Do not do like the practice of the land… in which you dwelled, and do not do like the practice of the land… to which I bring you, and do not walk in their traditions. Do My mi•shᵊpât•im and watchguard My khuq•im to walk in them." (wa-Yi•qᵊr•â 18.3).
