Jesus rose three days after His crucifixion death on the Day of Firstfruits, as THE Firstfruit. This is what God wants us to celebrate; not the symbol of a pagan fertility goddess to whom infants were sacrificed. “But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ's at His coming.” 1 Cor 15:20.
