What Does Easter Mean to Christians?

Easter is a Christian holiday that is held to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. So, Easter is a momentum that is celebrated because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Therefore, Easter is held 3 days after the death of Jesus due to crucifixion.

With the resurrection of Jesus, Christians have eternal life. Of course, that's only for people who believe in Jesus. Then, what is the main meaning of the Easter celebration for Christians?

  • Easter is a form of victory and hopes for Christians because the Lord Jesus comes back to life after being crucified.
  • The resurrection of Jesus makes humans live forever and be free from sins.
  • The events of Jesus' death and resurrection prove that he is the son of God who was brought into the world to save mankind.


Why is Easter Always on Sunday?

Easter celebrations change every year. So, Easter does not have a fixed date and month like Christmas. Well, why is it like that?

Actually, the date and month of Easter celebrations were never predetermined. The church also doesn't mind this because the historical day of Jesus' resurrection actually happened on Sunday. 

Furthermore, the 14th day of the first month of the Jewish calendar is used as the day of the Easter celebration. In 325, Easter was actually fixed on the first Sunday in early spring by a church council at Nicea.
