Once again – we celebrate the crucifixion of Christ.

I do believe there is a huge possibility that the character Jesus Christ is based on a real historical person. I do believe that a person with such a subversive (for the Roman government, for the commercial and religous ‘powers that be’ of the time) worldview could be construed as some sort of rebel or enemy of society. I find it highly possible that a guy like that might be crucified in the period around 0-33 AD.
However – I do not really believe that you can be ressurrected from the dead – so what easter is really about is celebrating that some guy with radical ideas was killed on the cross 2000 years ago.
Approximately the same as if a guy – say the Timothy McVeigh, or Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (who will be on trial in New York for the 9/11 terrorist attack) is executed by the state and then in a few hundred years is placed in a different historical context. If that were to happen, people might be celebrating the electric chair like the cross is celebrated…
However I appreciate having the easter vacation, and do not mind eating and drinking a little extra at a traditional ‘easter lunch’… So Cheers – lets celebrate the crucifixion of Christ once again – lets eat, drink and be merry, for Jesus Died!
