Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I primarily bought this book to see what the scholarly view on easter was, how it all got started. I had formed an opinion already based on my reading of the relevant easter sources, ie Melito, Iranaeas, Eusebios and etc. It more or less confirmed my opinion that easter developed out of the Jewish pasech but there were conclusions and evidences I did not consider enough or appreciate. One thing this should help do is provide an educated opinion which is contrary to the common popular myth that easter was originally a pagan festival, a myth which needs to be refuted every time easter comes about.

Beyond this, the book details the growth and development of the feast, how at first the focus was not primarily on the resurrection but on the slain lamb of God, which is common in Melito's sermon. How the easter celebration came to encompass holy week and gradually in the liturgical traditions both east and west become a time for remembering and reliving key parts of the gospel and passion.

The information about the Jewish practice is also worth paying attention to in that we should understand Christianity and Judaism growing up together while challenging the other through specific developments. Passover for the Jewish community according to this book is not as some might believe a unchanged feast, it had to develop in response to Christianity and the destruction of the temple.

In short, get this book if you are at all interested in the history of these two sacred feasts.

If you have not read this book, you are not well enough informed on the subject(s), even if you are a seminary grad and/or Pastor. This book is a complete treatment of the histories and comparison's of Passover and Easter. If you are a spiritual leader in any position, absorbing this book will provide the only way for you to be confident you are leading your "flock" with an accurate, non-biased approach, especially during the Passover/Easter season every year.
