9781484958384: The Spring Connection: Easter, Passover, and Other Festivals

Why does the date of Easter change every year? Is there any connection between spring and Passover? If Jesus was crucified during Passover Sunday, why does Easter come before Passover sometimes? What is the relation between Bunnies and Easter or eggs and Easter? Why do Japanese celebrate a secular Vernal Equinox Day? The author has given answers to these questions, based on his research on the origin of spring celebration in different ancient civilizations. For instance, this book explains why gaps between stone pillars in Stonehenge pointed toward the direction of sunrise on the vernal equinox. The author also has presented his discovery on the origin of the Hebrew calendar and a new interpretation of the meaning of the Lord's Passover. His interpretation is potentially controversial since he has given a completely different meaning to the Israelites' Exodus from Egypt. This book will be entertaining and intellectually stimulating for people of all ages and readers of general interest. The author also believes this book might be especially attractive to rationalists and other open-minded people.

About the Author:

Dr. Yasushi Nozawa was born in Tokyo, Japan. He came to the United States and received M.S and Sc.D. degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT. After his retirement from engineering, he began writing as a second career. He writes in two different fields: the genre of biographical fictions and memoirs, and science and religions, specializing in the rational explanation of religious phenomena. He has written several dozen articles in both fields for periodicals. He has also published, "Temporary Permanence" subtitled, "My Life in America: Humorous Short Stories Based on Experiences Of a Japanese Engineer," a collection of biographical short stories written under the pen name, Yashi Nozawa. Many readers of the book have praised his O’Henry-style writing and made it a local best seller. "The Spring Connections: Easter, Passover and Others," is his second book, the first in the field of science and religion. The book is about the deep-rooted tradition of spring celebration and its interaction with calendar systems. He also disclosed his new interpretation of the meaning of the Israelites' Exodus in the book.
