The main event of all of Christianity is celebrated in the spring. I guess Jesus was crucified on a Friday but I’m not sure if it was in the spring time - a time of renewal. (Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox I think) Like Christmas, the early Christians took over pagan holidays that were already there. Christmas time originally celebrated the winter solstice and return of the warming rays of the sun. Sun worship was popular in pagan days so Christianity just jumped on this one and took it over. Lots of spring holidays pre existed and the story of the resurrection of Jesus probably took those over too. The vernal equinox is a measurable event and important for spring planting.
- Why did God wait so long. If we are now saved from this selfless act from God/Jesus what about all the people that came before the year 36?
- What of the proto humans before homosapien?
- If God can do anything why did he have to sacrifice his son to forgive us for our sins? Why not just do it?
- How does is really work. What is the mechanism by which I am saved via the death of Jesus 2006 years ago?
