From that point forward, the Easter date depended on the ecclesiastical approximation of March 21 for the vernal equinox.
    Like I said, Jesus attended Passover in Jerusalem and days later he was crucified, hence the dating of Easter. Thanks
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    You should know, how many myths of the Bible can be found in many previous stories, like Gilgamesh, or Egyptian myths.
    You should stick to what you know and this isn't it.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.
