Easter Sunday is the highest holy day in Christianity. And billions of Christians around the world celebrate it every year with a beautiful variety of traditions.
While the origin behind Easter Sunday is known to all — the resurrection of Jesus — the origins of the traditions that accompany the holiday are less familiar to many. When did Christians start celebrating Easter? How did they first celebrate it? When did the rabbits come into play? And the chocolate bunnies and eggs?
To find out the answers to all these questions and more, tune in to our new documentary, The History of Easter. Hosted by Matthew West, this joint presentation by Museum of the Bible and TBN will take you from the Easter traditions enjoyed today back to the event that started it all.
The History of Easter will air Thursday, April 1, at 8:00 and 10:00 p.m. EDT and Saturday, April 3, at 1:00 p.m. EDT on TBN.
