"We have seen that in the New Testament worship was an encounter with the living God through the risen Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit." Hoyt Hickman
Easter is more than a day; Easter is an entire season in the Christian year. The early Christians called this season the Great Fifty Days. It began with Easter Day and extended through Pentecost on the fiftieth day (seven Sundays). The season commemorates the fifty days that began when Jesus rose from the dead and ended when the disciples received the Holy Spirit and the Christian church was born.
