The Pagan History of Easter

Most people celebrate Easter but do not understand the history of this Pagan holiday. I made this video to give people some knowledge about the roots of Easter.

Spring is the best season of the year for many people. Warm sunny days; the earth, springing forth with new life. Flowers, budding trees, baby animals: all seem to joyfully announce that the long cold winter is over.

No other Springtime custom encapsulates these celebrations of new life quite like Easter. From baby animals, to Easter eggs and Easter egg hunts, to sunrise Sunday services and more, Easter is a beloved tradition to many people.

Easter Sunday is the highlight of the Roman Catholic liturgical year when the resurrection of Jesus Christ is celebrated.

According to their Catechism:

Easter is not simply one feast among others, but the "Feast of feasts," the "Solemnity of solemnities," just as the Eucharist is the "Sacrament of sacraments" (the Great Sacrament). St. Athanasius calls Easter "the Great Sunday" and the Eastern Churches call Holy Week "the Great Week." The mystery of the Resurrection, in which Christ crushed death . . . . (Catechism of the Catholic Church, Part 2, Sec. 1, Chapter 2, Article 1, #1169.)

Artemis (Semiramis)
Artemis of Ephesus (Semaramis in one of her many guises).

Note: She is clothed with eggs.

The origins of Easter, however, reveal that it flows directly from ancient paganism. Shortly after the flood, Nimrod reestablished idolatry in the earth. After his death, Nimrod was promoted as the original sun god. His widow, Semiramis, was called the "queen of heaven." Various cultures continued the idolatry of these original pagans under different names. To the Egyptians, Semiramis was Isis. To the Babylonians, she was Beltis, consort to the god, Bel. To the Cannaanites she was Astarte. The Assyrians called her Ishtar.
The worship of these goddesses involved occult fertility practices. These degrading rites were practiced even by the Israelites when in apostasy. Yahuwah clearly denounced any Israelite involvement in these pagan celebrations.

"Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger." (Jeremiah 7:17-18, NKJV)

"And He said to me, 'Turn again, and you will see greater abominations that they are doing.' So He brought me to the door of the north gate of . . . [Yahuwah's] house; and to my dismay, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz." (Ezekiel 8:13-14, NKJV)

Modern Easter has no basis in the pure religion of Heaven. All of its traditions are pagan.

Easter (Ishtar) Eggs in a basket
Easter (Ishtar) Eggs

Rabbits and dyed Easter eggs symbolize fertility.
Hot cross buns were the "cakes" offered to the queen of heaven.
The forty days of weeping for Tammuz are now the 40 days of Lent leading up to Easter.
Sunrise services were performed by pagan priests to honor the sun god.
Celebration of Easter does not honor the death and resurrection of the Saviour. Participation in pagan practices honors Satan. No amount of renaming it by Christian names can purify Easter of its pagan origins.

Easter is much more than a pagan imposter pretending to be Christian. Lurking behind the pretty facade, Easter is a cover-up for the greatest fraud of all time: a calendar change which hides the true day of the resurrection and the true seventh-day Sabbath.

  1. Thank for the video I started praying for God to reveal to me the true about Easter because I though it was this Sunday in I didn’t want to be apart of it if it’s not right

  2. I did not know the full extent of why the ham, eggs, etc. It just seems so clear that easter is not for christians. Thank you greatly for your ministries, and for spreading true knowledge.

  3. Greetings,

    Acts 12,

    1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
    2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
    3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
    4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter (G3957) to bring him forth to the people.

    G3957, translated as Easter in the KJV, is the Greek πάσχα (Pascha). It is derived from H6453 and H6452, both which read פסח (Pesach), or Passover. Also note that verse 3 mentions the “days of unleavened bread”, something that is not part of Easter, but Passover.

    “Pascha” occurs 29 times in the KJV NT and is correctly translated as Passover in every occurrence except Acts 12 v4.

    Acts 12 v4 should read “Passover” and not “Easter”.

    Other than that, it is pretty well documented where “Easter” comes from.

    Paul, I don’t know how much you study the original languages, but a couple of good apps that you can use are blueletterbible, and mysword bible. Both are fairly easy to use, and they are free (unless you want to donate, of course).

    Yah bless you

    Shalom

    • +HOOSIER O_o

      This is just to give you a heads up in case you don’t know, but I can’t see your comments. I’ve noticed some others having the same problem in another thread recently. The only reason I saw this comment is because it popped up as a notification, which allows me to read what you posted, but when I browse the comments in this video… Nothing. Perhaps some other people can see your comments, but on my screen, you’re invisible. You might want to contact google for help if it turns out that nobody else can see what you post in order to fix whatever the problem might be.

      In case anybody wants to see what Hoosier wrote, but can’t see his post, he wrote:

      Romans 3 v21-22

      But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.

      I’m not entirely sure what this has to do with my original comment, but I always appreciate the Scripture.

      As a suggestion for quoting Scripture in the future, since YouTube likes to interpret anything resembling time format (mm:ss, for example) as a time reference to the video, it automatically converts such a string to a hyperlink, and it wouldn’t surprise me that if one posts over an “x” number of hyperlinks, the system interprets it as spam. Try to find another way to reference Scripture without using something resembling time format.

      Shalom

    • yeah Jesus did rise but the church went through persecution and was destroyed and then rose up and everyone called the church evil when it was rebuilt.

  4. hello brother, blessings 🙂 I love your message. im wanting to learn more of keeping Shabbat. I did my first this last Saturday. it was no where perfect. I answered the phone to my brother. he now knows, I wont be answering my phone. I switched the lights off in bathroom a couple times. I was wondering if having radio on was okay. cause my understanding was that is wasn’t. I appreciate your thoughts. thank you! shalom

    • As we start following the Torah we do what is in the Word says. Ive heard people say you read what Ya commands follow that and if the Yahweh leads you to add such as no lights, no traveling or anything else you follow. We still talk in the phone and use lights we have our weekely youtube fellowship live with Paul Nison and many others. We just rest from our regular work. Im a house wife so I dont do any cleaning except food and dishes if they get too crazy. Anything else can wait. Hope that helps

  5. I am totally with you on almost everything here. I would like to bring up something I came across. I know that boiled eggs are a traditional Passover food (This year will be my first Passover celebration! Yay!) so I feel like that maybe supports this story or “legend” . Well, here:

    Christian traditions:
    While the origin of Easter eggs can be explained in the symbolic terms described above, among followers of Eastern Christianity the legend says that Mary Magdalene was bringing cooked eggs to share with the other women at the tomb of Jesus, and the eggs in her basket miraculously turned bright red when she saw the risen Christ.

    A different, but not necessarily conflicting legend concerns Mary Magdalene’s efforts to spread the Gospel. According to this tradition, after the Ascension of Jesus, Mary went to the Emperor of Rome and greeted him with “Christ has risen,” whereupon he pointed to an egg on his table and stated, “Christ has no more risen than that egg is red.”
    After making this statement it is said the egg immediately turned blood red.

    I cannot attest to the validity of these legendary stories, the only reference I could find for the tradition of coloring eggs or hiding them is the Old High German Lullaby. This document is supposed to be a 10th century poem of surviving pre-christian mythology, but has been ruled a 19th century forgery.

    Now I realize that this woman claimed to have popped out of an egg, but I see no credible references linking this story with the Messianic or “Christian” tradition of coloring the Passover eggs.

    I don’t post this just for argument. My family has had a difficult time emotionally dealing with not being able to celebrate christmas and easter and halloween with my kids, and after researching this, I cannot find a reason why my kids shouldn’t color Passover eggs with their grandma.

    Thank you for your videos. I enjoy and find inspiration in them.

  6. What are the VERIFIABLE and PROVEN sources of all this information?

    The reason I ask, is that I have posed this same information on Christian forums about the roots of this holiday and many have come back and claim they have researched in depth and there is no proof or reliable sources that can prove that Easter and Christmas is pagan and that people are just getting information from random websites without proving this information is valid or verifiable and everyone is copying each other and spreading the word.

    So what are the main sources of all this info on Easter, even though a google search can produce 30 pages of the same info, but they still reject it and not valid.

  7. Lol I thought the title read Esther I was like, “I love that women.” I wish I can be like her. A quiet and gentle spirit; and fighting a important battle of her knees.

  8. Jehovah already commanded us to abstain from pagan practices and to not learn the way of the nations. Yet, apostate Christians disobey the Torah and do things that are pure evil… I’m so glad Jehovah opened my eyes and healed me from my pagan lifestyle. Hallelujah!
