24 Apocryphal Myths Commonly Associated With Easter:
MONDAY, MARCH 30, 2015
Posted by: Grace Community International | more..
True or False - According To The Bible....
- Christians greeted one another on Easter with “He is Risen”, the response being, “He is Risen Indeed!”.
- The historical and architectural locals related to Jesus’ arrest, trial and crucifixion were venerated by Christians
- There is no Biblical evidence that the tomb where Jesus was buried ever became an important historical and geographical focal point of the early church. There is not a single instance of it being revisited for any reason by anyone.
- The hill “Golgotha” upon which Jesus cross was placed became an important historical and geographical focal point of the early church.

Dear Prayer Warriors,
Each day this week leading up to Easter I will be posted a series of True and False questions, with the answers appearing below. Like Christmas, Easter is a celebration in which Biblical, apocryphal and legends are all taught side by side without distinguishing between what is Scriptural and what are unsubstantiated legends and stories. The object of these questions is for you to test yourself--not a test of obscure Bible trivia but a test of whether you are holding to Biblical revelation or myths and legends. You should ask yourself, “If I have believed this myth, what other myths do I believe concerning God the Holy Spirit’s Revelation concerning Christ’s arrest, trial, torture, crucifixion, death, burial, resurrection and the actions of the early church?” The goal is that you will be challenged to faithfully read and study the holy Scriptures and base your convictions on the holy, eternal, inerrant written Word of God.

True or False - According To The Bible....

1. Christians greeted one another on Easter with “He is Risen”, the response being, “He is Risen Indeed!”.
False – There is no Biblical record of this phrase ever being used, nor does there exist any first century primary source document with this phrase being used.

2. The historical and architectural locals related to Jesus’ arrest, trial and crucifixion were venerated by Christians
False – There is no record in Holy Scripture of any church or Christian visiting or venerating a historical sight associated with Jesus or the Apostles.

3. There is no Biblical evidence that the tomb where Jesus was buried ever became an important historical and geographical focal point of the early church.
True – There exists not a single instance of Scripture where the tomb was revisited for any reason. Also there exists no primary source first century documents indicating that early Christians venerated and visited the site of the tomb where Jesus was buried. In fact the location of the tomb has long been lost. The tradition that the church maintained the location of the tomb and passed it down generation after generation has no basis in in first century recorded history.

4. The hill “Golgotha” upon which Jesus' cross was placed became an important historical and geographical focal point of the early church.
False – Conventional wisdom would seem to indicate that this location would be an important site for teaching, for holding evangelistic meetings and for prayer meetings. This however is not the case. Unlike modern Christians the Apostles and first century church were seemingly indifferent to historical and geographical sites associated with Christ’s earthly ministry being instead consumed with the worship and proclamation of Jesus.

By His Mercy,
II Corinthians 4:1
