Easter , [nb 1] also called Pascha Greek , Latin [nb 2] or Resurrection Sunday ,   is a festival and holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day after his burial following his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. Most Christians refer to the week before Easter as ” Holy Week “, which contains the days of the Easter Triduum , including Maundy Thursday , commemorating the Maundy and Last Supper ,   as well as Good Friday , commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. In Eastern Christianity , the season of Pascha begins on Pascha and ends with the coming of the 40th day, the Feast of the Ascension. Easter and the holidays that are related to it are moveable feasts which do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars which follow only the cycle of the Sun; rather, its date is offset from the date of Passover and is therefore calculated based on a lunisolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar. The First Council of Nicaea established two rules, independence of the Jewish calendar and worldwide uniformity, which were the only rules for Easter explicitly laid down by the council. No details for the computation were specified; these were worked out in practice, a process that took centuries and generated a number of controversies.

He has the same basic structure as amillennialism, but can is specific in naming evil characters on the world scene. I’m not sure he is fully aware of some of the sources he is quoting. And some of his bible passages seem jarringly out of context. He is right to see Antichrist rebuilding the Temple and ruling the world from Jerusalem presupposing, of course, a return of the Jews to Israel.
Presumably, this is a bad thing for Christians. However, it doesn’t make any sense to have marshalled all the beautiful passages where God himself promises to rebuild the temple for his people in the latter days pp. Engleman is an Orthodox guy.

Since Byzantine is a historiographical term, the original name uses the adjective “Roman” as it was what the Eastern Roman Empire continued calling itself. The calendar was based on the Julian calendar , except that the year started on 1 September and the year number used an Anno Mundi epoch derived from the Septuagint version of the Bible. It placed the date of creation at years before the incarnation , and was characterized by a certain tendency which had already been a tradition among Jews and early Christians to number the years from the calculated foundation of the world Latin: Annus Mundi or Ab Origine Mundi — “AM”.
This would make the current year AD before September. The first appearance of the term is in the treatise of a monk and priest, Georgios AD —39 , who mentions all the main variants of the “World Era” in his work. He also regarded it as the most convenient for the Easter computus. Complex calculations of the year lunar and year solar cycles within this world era allowed scholars to discover the cosmic significance of certain historical dates, such as the birth or the crucifixion of Jesus.
This date underwent minor revisions before being finalized in the mid-7th century, although its precursors were developed c. AD The era was ultimately calculated as starting on September 1, and Jesus was thought to have been born in the year since the creation of the world. The eastern Church avoided the use of the Anno Domini system of Dionysius Exiguus , since the date of Christ’s birth was debated in Constantinople as late as the 14th century.
The Byzantine calendar was identical to the Julian calendar except that:. The leap day of the Byzantine calendar was obtained in an identical manner to the bissextile day of the original Roman version of the Julian calendar, by doubling the sixth day before the calends of March, i. After the collapse of the Byzantine Empire in , the era continued to be used by Russia, which witnessed millennialist movements in Moscow in AD AM.

The ethereal chants that had for two hours entranced a standing congregation still echoed off the intricately painted walls as Father Aleksy Gomonov retreated to the sacristy to remove his vestments. But his sizeable, surprisingly young flock remained. As tables were brought in and arranged in neat rows among the ancient icons and golden candelabra, the crowd began to mingle. Off came the thick winter coats, and out came the smartphones.
Numbers were traded, eye contact held or averted, and a subdued atmosphere of piety gave way to flirtation and giggles. It was the latest gathering of the Peter and Fevronia Club, a sort of speed-dating night for Moscow’s Orthodox Christians.
