“The first Sunday after the first full moon of Spring.” Just in case you never knew how Easter was determined. Since it is supposed to be the annual commemoration of the of the greatest thing that ever happened to mankind – the redemption from sin – one would think that this date could be a little more specific every year.
Why didn’t someone write the date down? After all, so much else was written about the days that those writings became the cornerstone of the earth’s great religion. Could it have been too much trouble for someone to say “Maybe we better with this date down, in case someone needs a death date for taxes.”
