The Mathematics of Easter

Why is Lent 40 days long, why is Passion Week 7 days, and why was Jesus “in the earth” for 3 days? Further, why do we celebrate his birth on the solstice and his resurrection on the equinox?

This essay by Alvin Boyd Kuhn explains it all, and it blew my mind. Good reading for an Easter weekend.
