Had an email today saying I had won 1,000,000 dollars. How nice I was a dollar millionaire for a few seconds until I deleted the email unopened.

When did your lockdown start nonna?  A friend in Seattle phoned us last night and he said they’ve been in lockdown since Feb 24th which I find amazing seeing as The US borders weren’t closed until 16th March, 9 hours before we were due to fly to Miami ........

Lizzie I think it was 10 march but quarantine was advised before then. we are just listening to Conte nothing new apart from libraries and book shops can open in may but don't know what date. schools need books. That date does seem a bit soon but who knows maybe Seattle has different views to Trumps. Probably being wiser too than Trump.

Can anyone explain to me why Easter Saturday is 18th April and not the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday

Yes but why is Easter a moveable "celebration"

Surely Jesus died on a particular day/date, so why is Easter related to the moon and can fall any time between March 22nd and April 25th.

This further reinforces my view that it has no credibility whatsoever

Easter is linked to the Moon , vernal equinox  it was the only way of recording the actual time of the event.

@Cliff Ton  I never knew that either!   Not that it matters.... it's a lovely day today, 'Easter Saturday' or not.

My Birthday is early April so I'd always wondered why sometimes Easter was before and sometimes after.

 

What I do know is almost always Easter is a washout, guess what this Easter will be.

April 14 th book shops and libraries can open so can clothes shops for newborn and children's clothing. Let's wait for the next steps . We are still in lockdown being very careful.

Christ was crucified on the Jewish Passover feast.  This feast always takes place on the full moon of the month this will vary year by year.  It is always passover though, and many calendars show the passover date.

Easter is generally believed to be a pagan feast for the goddess 'Ishtar'  believed to be anglicized to easter which was mostly a spring festival.

I prerer to call it Resurrection Sunday as I am not much interested in pagan so called goddesses.

If the above is correct and we know the age of JC when he was crucified then we should be able to calculate the exact date for Good Friday and therefore hold Easter on that date every year.

Strange that we were able to come up with an exact date for his birth?

The date of birth of Jesus is not stated in the gospels or in any historical reference, but most theologians assume a year of birth between 6 BC and 4 BC. The historical evidence is too incomplete to allow a definitive dating, but the year is estimated through two different approaches—one by analyzing references to known historical events mentioned in the nativity accounts in the Gospels of Luke and Matthew, and the second by working backward from the estimation of the start of the ministry of Jesus. The day or season has been estimated by various methods, including the description of shepherds watching over their sheep.         Wikipedia

How's my day? Bloody useless!! Just wasted two hours of my life,trying to shop online for the first time. Trying to get a so called 'slot' is like pulling hen's teeth. Registered with Tesco and got a pageful of "unavailables, then empty slots for next Thursday. Put my dainty finger on a time which highlighted, so continue shopping. Over an hour choosing then to find I hadn't got a "slot". How are you supposed to know if you've done it right. After all, I pay me taxes and give to charity as well as buying pegs off gypsys. Yours truly, Furious of Tunbridge Wells !

Pretty clear then, Jesus was born between 4 and 6 years before he was born.

I don't concern myself about dates in line with our present calendar from 2000 years ago.  (I can't remember what I did last week.  :biggrin: )

The fact is that the Bible does not give dates that align precisely with our dating system.  Passover was variable in the Jewish calendar because of it's alignment with the full moon of that month.  So we know when the crucifion and resurrection took place in that particular year.

Other, so called, Christian holidays, notably Christmas,  were largely instituted by the church of Rome.  In it's attempts to convert the pagans Rome often attempted to make a Christian holiday out of an existing pagan holiday, eg. Christmas, and halloween.  This is Biblically incorrect, but in line with Rome's emphasis on tradition.  The Bible does not instruct us to have big 'Christian' celebrations.  That is just human tradition.

 

The fact that we cannot put a finger on exact dates in our modern calendar does not mean everything the Bible does state is not true.  Even secular historians eg Josephus, make reference to the life of Christ.  Whether we choose to believe it or not is up to the individual.

Think I'm going to create a new game similar to 'Spot the ball'. Will call it " Hunt the delivery slot" !

Spent ages yesterday trying to find one. Four different stores. Who does one have to sleep with to get a slot?
