Orthodox Easter History
Orthodox Easter commemorates Jesus' resurrection three days after his crucifixion and death. Following his death, he was removed from the cross and buried in a tomb. On Sunday, it was discovered that Jesus' tomb was empty. Angels informed onlookers that Jesus had risen. Throughout the next 40 days, Jesus appeared to his apostles and disciples before finally ascending to heaven.
Orthodox Easter is the highest and holiest of holidays in the Christian Orthodox faith. Orthodox Easter follows the Julian calendar and must take place after Jewish Passover. For these reasons, Orthodox Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox.
