Quick Reference

The Passover. A false etymology in the early Church connected this Hebrew word with the Greek verb paschein, meaning to suffer. Because of its theme of Christian suffering, it has then been suggested that 1 Peter originated as a homily at an Easter (Paschal) baptism (1 Pet. 3: 21).

Subjects: Christianity.
