There are beautifully decorated eggs to share as gifts in celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It's an 'Easter Egg'. Every year, when it comes to Easter day, most churches distribute painted 'boiled eggs' with various patterns.
Did the members of the Early Church paint eggs and share them with each other on the resurrection day?


Did the early church eat eggs at Easter?


It was the day after the Sabbath, the third day after Jesus was sacrificed on the cross.
When the two disciples were going to the countryside called 'Emmaus', the resurrected Jesus appeared in front of them.

[Luke 24:16-24] As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them;

But the two disciples did not recognize Jesus while they were working together.

[Luke 24:25-31] "How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!
... he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.
... he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.

Jesus ate the bread he blessed his disciples with. The disciples then realized that it was Jesus who died on the cross (Luke 24:32-35). On the day Jesus Christ was resurrected, what the disciples received and ate from Jesus? 'boiled eggs' or 'bread'? The saints of the early church observed the resurrection day with bread, following Jesus' paths (Acts 20:6-7).


The Bible testifies that it is not the boiled eggs derived from other religions, but the bread that Jesus Christ Himself set an example with. The bread, on the resurrection day, will help us realize and open the eyes of the soul.

    Thanks to God the Father and God the Mother, They gave us spiritual eyes and let us distinguish the truth from the falsehood. The most important thing is whether it is from the words of God or not. The eggs cannot be the symbol of resurrection Day. It's because there was no record of it. Rather, we should eat bread on the resurrection day as Jesus set an example.

    Surprising that there was not a single word about egg, but only bread. Easter egg was just other teaching. Let's follow the teaching of bible.

    In most churches today, eggs are eaten at resurrection day. However, this is not the teaching of the Bible, and on Resurrection day, Jesus took bread and gave thanks and opened spiritual eyes.

    Eggs are not eaten on Easter. According to the Bible, we must eat the blessed bread. Only then will our spiritual eyes be enlightened so that we can recognize Christ.

    We must keep Resurrection Day according to the teachings of Jesus and receive the blessing of eternal life.

    Jesus shared the bread, not eggs to let us realize who is true God and hope for resurrection!

    Easter egg isn't biblical. It belongs to the heathen pagan.

    According to the Bible, we should break bread on the Resurrection Day (Ac 20:7). Easter, on which people eat eggs, is a regulation to worship another god. Christ Ahnsahnghong came to the earth and made known to us how to keep the Resurrection Day of the New Covenant. Please come to the Church of God and receive the resurrection of life by keeping the Resurrection Day of the New Covenant.

    Eating boiled eggs on resurrection day is not recorded anywhere in the Bible. Jesus and the members of early church only ate rice bread. Boiled eggs originated from the worship of the ancient goddess Eostre. That's why it's still called Easter and it's celebrated.
    It is contradictory to celebrate Jesus' resurrection by eating boiled eggs. You have to keep resurrection day as the Bible teaches you.

    The Easter custom has nothing to do with the teachings of Christ. Its origin is in the pagan religion. Pagans worshiped Eostre, the goddess of fertility. And pagan symbol of Eostre are rabbits and eggs. Therefore, people are actually taking part in a pagan festival, when they celebrate with eggs and rabbits. We should not practice those kind of worship.
