Easter also known as Pascha is a season where Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ after His crucifixion. As described in the New Testament, this incident occured on the third after he was buried.
The resurrection of Jesus also depicts the hope of salvation for humankind and defeat of death. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
This verse shows that it was God's plan to let Jesus come on earth, tell people about His word and be crucified for their sins. Right now He's seated at the right hand of God interceding for us.
