The subject of which day Christ died began to be hotly debated a few hundred years after His death. In the council of AD 325, the leaders of the Roman “Imperial Church” thought it to be in the best interest of the Church to disassociate their ritual celebration of the death and resurrection of Christ, which they now called “Easter,” away from the annual Jewish Passover event. They actually wanted to divert attention from the Jewishness of Jesus. In doing so, these “fathers” guided Christendom away from the biblical reality as expressed by Paul—“Christ our Passover was sacrificed for us” (1 Corinthians 5:7). This error has been locked into the celebration for over 1,600 years, not only by the Roman Catholics, but also by most of Protestantism. This is a fresh study which will have some surprises for most students of the subject, due to the controversy surrounding the chronology. It will re-align the death of Jesus Christ squarely upon the biblical setting of the Passover theme as presented in the gospels. Above all, it will demonstrate beyond any shadow of a doubt that the four gospels harmonize perfectly on the subject. It also establishes that Christ died precisely on the eve of Passover, when the lambs were being sacrificed in the Temple services. This Bible study will — Enrich our appreciation of the Divine arrangement in redemption. Demonstrate the flawless consistency of the biblical record. Correct Christendom’s traditional day celebrating Christ’s death. Strengthen the Christian’s new freedom in Christ.

Winner of the James Mooney Award of the Southern Anthropological Society In this bracingly original anthropological study, Miles Richardson draws on forty years of empirical research to explore the paradox that while humans must die like all evolving life forms, they have adapted a unique symbolic communication that makes them aware of their naturally occurring fate; and through word and artifact, they dwell upon that discovery. Using the concepts of culture and place, he illuminates how two groups, Catholics in Spanish America and Baptists in the American South, create “being-in-Christ” and thereby “put death in its place.” The book combines biological, cultural, archaeological, and linguistic anthropology; a rigorous evolutionary framework; and a postmodern dialogic stance to view humanity as inescapably a product of nature without sacrificing the interpretative social constructions that “turn a primate into a poem.” Hard-won ethnographic detail and moving religious insight make this an enthralling work.
