The word ‘Easter’ is mentioned once in the authorized King James Bible, Acts 12:4. Strong’s Concordance shows that the word Easter in the verse is g3957 Pascha or Passover. The verse (Acts 12:3) preceding it, described the time frame in question, “then were the days of unleavened bread” pointing specifically to the Lord’s Feast Day and not the pagan holiday of Easter.
Matthew 5:17-19 Think NOT that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil [Magnify; Strengthen]. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in NO WISE PASS from the law, till ALL be fulfilled [Completed].
1 John 3:4-7 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
