We celebrate the events of Easter - which are all based upon Lunar Phases, and thus vary from year to year.

Do we know a specific calender date of the events that created Easter?

The calendar date Nisan 14 Jewish calendar, is the date of the impalement/death of Jesus; the calendar is based on lunar phases and seasonal starts per the equinoxes. Nisan is the first month of the year in that calendar. The Passover was to be 14 days after the appearance of the first full New Moon as apparent over Jerusalem, thus, on the full moon. The night Jesus had his last meal, he was having the Passover Meal, and then proceeded to implement a new arrangement that would replace the Passover going forward.

The body of Jesus was entombed before sundown on 14 Nisan, Sabbath came and went, the next day-first day of the week, the tomb was found opened and the corpse gone.

Easter has trappings of many pagan corruptions (spring rituals, rebirth, fertility rights, etc.), is made to fit into the modern Gregorian calendar, and does not in all years coincide with the true annual date of the death/resurrection of Jesus. This year it happens to do so.

In the recorded words of Jesus, there was never a directive to pointedly memorialize the resurrection, as there was one from him to memorialize the Last Evening Meal and his death.

So -

Does Nisan 14 Jewish calendar have a specific correlation to a date in our Julian calendar?

No, just as Passover and other Jewish holy days do not either. Julian calendar and Jewish calendar are different. Seven times in 19 years, a 13th month was added in the Jewish calender to allow the solar and lunar years to realign. Jewish months were from new moon to new moon; years were seasonal by solar/earth position relativity- you can see the conundrum. This cycle takes into account that every 19 years the new and the full moons fall again on the same days of the solar year.

Also, please see an edit below, I omitted something in relation to the new moon and Nisan 14...

So nobody has calculated it back to a Julian date? I find it hard to believe that at the very least an atheist has done the calendar math in concert with the lunar cycles.

The marker chosen for this event was one of a lunar occurence, and the Julian and later the Gregorian calenders are solar oriented; so the annual time of observance as important as this one will ever be noted according to the lunar event so described above. The date of when the event is observed is less critical than the acknowledgement of the directive to observe it according to the pattern established.

Many a mathemetician has attempted convenient working systems to coordinate lunar cycles and solar years, and the numbers of each do not mesh. It has always made me think if counting years was really all that important at all. Knowing what season was at hand throughout any given year seems to me to be sufficient.

I just posted the history and now it's completely lost again. dry.gif Why don't
you guys try the complaint thread or better yet...begin an 'Extended

The Monophysite Christological position is pretty much the opposite of the
Chalcedonian Christological position, hope that clears it up for you biggrin.gif .

Yep, being a Smart A_ _. I saw that answer on a forum on the subject and
just wanted to try it out rolleyes.gif .

Ok...there are so many controversies, explanations, definitions, and chaotic
history having to do with those two terms that I shiver to even attempt an
explanation but I will try to give an extremely broad view of them. Hoping
that I won't capture the attention of the many forums devoted to the
subject as they would surely throw me to the lions should they see my
feeble attempts here.

(Very, very) basically, the MC and the CC positions have to do with the
nature of Jesus Christ. MC holds that He has but one single nature....
the devine one. CC believes that Christ has 2 natures...the human and
the devine.

The arguments between the two sides were so vehement and long-lasting
that it ultimately led to the splitting of the Oriental and the Western
Orthodox churches but this is a simplification that wouldn't be tolerated
by any modern Theologian who would be aghast at what I've written. But it
IS a very basic explanation for an extremely complex subject.

I can say that the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches believe in
the Chalcedonian position.
