Title: KJV and Easter
Post by: ColporteurK on May 02, 2015, 06:16:45 AM
 Was the faithful King James Translation really mistranslated regarding Acts 12:3-4 ?

Some have used this one text in an attempt to place the KJV at the feet of translations that have done a great disservice to Scripture by following manuscripts corrupted by the Vatican.

" And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. Then were the days of unleavened bread."   "And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people."

Was Easter and the Passover really the same time period ? Notice the timing of unleavened bread according to Numbers 28:16-18

 Scripture seems to indicate the  14th day is Passover, the  15- day and for the next six days unleavened bread-, then the pagan Easter observance. Pagan Easter did not and does not coincide exactly with the Passover. To make reference to it is no different than what people do with the same today. We refer to Easter and Christmas. While it is pagan it is a common event in the Christian world.

It would seem ludicrous that those who translated the KJV could not tell the difference between Easter and the Passover.

The original word was "pascha"
Strong's G3957

occurs 29 times in 27 verses in the Greek concordance of the KJV
translated as "Passover" 28 times, and once as easter.

Why -- the people who translated the KJV were also just human beings, and though they did a very good, protestant based, translation, they were not perfect.

The Hebrew people often called the whole Passover/feast of unleavened bread week "Passover".
In reality Passover occurred at the beginning of the week of unleavened bread, when the Passover lamb was sacrificed.

The translaters may have thought to make a distinction between the day "Passover" (day of crucifixion) from the context which was calling the  whole weekly feast "Passover" by putting in the word which in their day tended to cover the whole idea of crucifixion and resurrection etc,  -- namely the Christian understanding "easter".
