A Little Easter Quiz…

As we approach the date of what is unquestionably Christendom’s most immoral, grotesque, and disgusting holiday, I would posit a few questions for the consideration of its celebrants:

  • On what day was the “Last Supper”; Passover or the Day of Preparation?
  • If, as the Gospels agree, the disciples fell asleep when with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, how is it the Gospels still can report everything Jesus said and did?
  • How is it possible, do you suppose, that during Jesus’ crucifixion a great earthquake would occur, renting the curtains in the Temple, opening graves, and leading to the dead walking around Jerusalem and talking to people, and yet not a single government official, scribe, or startled resident recorded such an incredible event for posterity?  Not a single, contemporaneous account to corroborate the claims of accounts written three generations later? And lastly
  • Who went to visit Jesus’ tomb on what is now called Easter Sunday, what did they find, and what did they do?
Don’t rush…we wouldn’t want you to get anything wrong, and be especially certain when answering the first and last questions above that you consult all four Gospels.

  1. Well, we could try to explain and justify all the inconsistencies and improbabilities (and impossibilities), or we could say "It's just a story, and not a very well-written one. You shouldn't expect evidence that Darth Vader froze Han Solo in 'carbonite' 'a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away' nor should you expect evidence that the Easter stuff happened".Of course, as far as I know, no one is justifying violating other people's liberty (and invading other lands to kill the inhabitants who believe in different myths) based upon the Star Wars story, yet.
