Acts 12:4 The KJV is awesome at distinguishing between things. Easter was the pagan holiday that Herod observed (Herod build many pagan cities) and Passover was observed by God fearing Jews (Exodus 12).

Greetings, Wayne,

"And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people."Act 12:4

The King James scholars translated the Greek word, pascha, as Easter in this one instance and Passover in 28 other places in the New Testament.

Whether this is a mistranslation or not I know not. It makes not a bit of difference in this context. The meaning is exactly identical using either word. I would not loose any sleep over it.
