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 bunnies come into play? And why do bunnies hide eggs?
If you want to know the answers to all these questions and more, then tune in to our documentary, The History of Easter. The documentary debuted April 1, 2021, but we’re re-airing it for anyone who missed it. 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 documentary is 54 minutes in length.
