Christians commemorate the Last Supper, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus at Easter – the time when Jesus abolished animal sacrifice and replaced it with bread and wine. So, if ever there was a time to celebrate the abolition of animal sacrifice – Easter is it. Yet, 2000 years after Jesus abolished animal sacrifices including the sacrificial Passover lamb. And replaced the Old Covenant of Punitive Black Letter Law with the New Covenant of kindness. 2000 years after Jesus said that he wanted kindness and not animal sacrifices. Drove the people who selling animals for sacrifice out of the Temple. And, replaced animal sacrifice with bread and wine. Some Christians still sacrifice animals to celebrate Easter. And, so traditional has unchristian, animal sacrifice become, that even some Vegans wonder what to eat for Easter. As if chocolate was not enough.
“It is kindness that I want, not animal sacrifices.” Matthew 9:13 and 12:7. Easter Sunday is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox. In the southern hemisphere Easter is celebrated in autumn.
