Easter (Old English: ?ostre; Greek: ?????, Paskha; Aramaic: ??????? Pas?a; from Hebrew: ??????? Pesa?) is the central feast in the Christian liturgical year. According to the Canonical gospels, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Day or Easter Sunday (also Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday). The chronology of his death and resurrection is variously interpreted to have occurred between AD 26 and 36.
