Passover is a Jewish festival that begins on the evening of Friday, April 6, 2012, and ends on the evening of Saturday, April 14, 2012. Passover is the oldest and most important religious festival in Judaism, commemorating the story of the Exodus, in which God delivered the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt.
In many countries Easter is called “Pascha”, which comes from the Hebrew word “Pesach” meaning Passover, because Jesus is God’s Passover lamb. Easter reminds us that Christ died for our sins so that anyone who believes in Him will live forever with God in Heaven.
