Description: The word Pascha ("Fesakh" in Arabic) refers to the Passover - the greatest feast of the Old Testament. That feast referred to the time when God delivered the Hebrew people from slavery and bondage. He commanded them to offer the sacrifice of a spotless lamb and to sprinkle its blood upon their gateposts that the Angel of Death would pass over their houses.

The Christians, seeing the true fulfillment of the Old Law in the New Testament, realized that this ancient feast was but a foreshadowing of the destruction of death by Christ in His burial and Resurrection.

Paschal Greeting

English - Christ is Risen! He is Truly Risen!
Greek - Christos Anesti! Alithos Anesti!
Arabic - Al Meseeh Kam! Hak'an Kam!
