Pascha: Easter or Passover or Both? - A Defense of Traditional Easter
Author: Dr. David W. T. Brattston
This seminal work reviews the historical Christian observance of the Easter festival of Maundy (Holy) Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday. It examines Christian authors prior to AD 326 for the purpose of evaluating the arguments of some denominations that Christians must observe Holy Communion only once a year, and then only on the evening of the Jewish Passover. In doing so, the book demonstrates that the now-traditional liturgical observances in the paschal season more fully comport with the original gospel, and thus are now the norm in Episcopal/Anglican and Lutheran churches, as well as the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church. Christians who wish to know more about Easter and Church practices, particularly those within the Sabbath-Keeping Churches of God or Church of God Movement or anyone who objects to traditional Christian worship at Easter, would be well-served by reading this booklet.
