Happy Easter from everyone here on the Godcast! This week on the Nicean Council Arthur Wellesley, RightWingNut, and Borzoi discus all things Easter related. We tackle the resurrection from an objective standpoint and see what evidence there is for it. Next we see what Jesus got up to when he died and if he was in Hell/Hades or Limbo/Purgatory. In the second half of the show we tackle the myth that Easter is a Pagan holiday appropriated by Christians, as well as examining the history of the traditions that we are accustomed to today.
