One thought on “Jesus and Mo and Easter

  1. The creation of the Easter myth was originally an answer to the Jewish Passover Myth. Jesus was portrayed as a human Passover Lamb set up to “redeem” (a magical transformative thingy) humanity. At the time of the Easter Story composition, two, possibly historical events, had been either documented or made up by Roman intellectuals. One was the crucifixion of three Jewish rebels where one was saved and the other was of a starving Jewish woman who had cannibalized her infant son. The suspicion here, of course, is that these events were woven into the Jesus narrative to abscond the Jewish Passover ritual and possibly to ridicule the Passover event itself.
