Resurrection Day

Resurrection Day

Resurrection Day refers to the day Jesus rose from the dead after the crucifixion. It is the Feast of God that commemorates God’s great power to triumph over death. The Feast originated in the Old Testament as the Day of Firstfruits. God instructed to celebrate this feast annually on the first Sunday after the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

After escaping Egypt, the Israelites faced one more challenge—the Egyptian army chasing after them. So God parted the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross to safety (Ex 14:26–31). Then God commemorated the day they landed on the other side of the Red Sea as the Feast of Firstfruits.

“The Lord said to Moses, ‘Speak to the Israelites and say to them: “When you enter the land I am going to give you and you reap its harvest, bring to the priest a sheaf of the first grain you harvest. He is to wave the sheaf before the Lord so it will be accepted on your behalf; the priest is to wave it on the day after the Sabbath.”’”

Leviticus 23:9–11

Christ fulfilled the prophecy of the Feast of Firstfruits. He resurrected on the Sunday after the Feast of Unleavened Bread as it was described in the Old Testament (Mk 16:9).

“But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.”

1 Corinthians 15:20

According to Christ’s example, we now celebrate this day and remember God’s victory over death by breaking and eating the resurrection bread (Lk 24:13–35). The World Mission Society Church of God follows the example Jesus Christ set 2,000 years ago. We celebrate the Day of Resurrection by sharing in the resurrection bread just as Christ did with His disciples.
