I wonder if Jesus, assuming he really existed, meant for all the special days he celebrated to get turned into something else. I can understand why his apostles might have forgotten about Passover, given that he died the day after and then came back to life. But apparently they were still counting the omer 49 days after Passover, because there they were celebrating Shavuot when those tongues of fire appeared over their heads and all of a sudden it was Pentecost.
I’m not sure I get it. If they’d really seen Jesus along with his body going up into the sky, why were they celebrating the giving of the Torah just ten days later? And what happened the next year? Did they finally stop counting?
