Pascha Translated Easter One of the supposed “errors” in the King James Bible is the word “Easter” in Acts 12:4. The problem stems from the translation of a Greek word. The word in Greek is “pascha.” This word is translated every time as “Passover” except in this one location. Therefore, the critics of the KJV say that translating “pascha” as Easter is a translation error.
The truth of the matter is that the critics are wrong and the King James Bible is right. And you don’t even have to know Greek to see this. If you will check your concordance, you will find that the word “Passover” in the New Testament is always a reference to the night of the 14th day of the first month of the Jewish calendar (Ex. 12:1-8). The seven-day feast that began with the Passover is “the feast of unleavened bread.”
You will find this first day (Passover) referred to a variety of ways:
the first day of the feast of unleavened bread, (Mat 26:17) the feast of the passover, (Mark 14:1) the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, (Mark 14:12) the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, … the Passover. (Luke 22:1) the day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover. (Luke 22:7)

The reason why Acts 12:4 mentions Easter as to when Peter was killed was because that was a holiday to Herod and not Passover.
Some have accused the translators of KJV to substituting their words.
It’s an error. More projecting.
Only the KJV has it right.
This is really simple to figure out. Passover comes before the Feast of Unleaven Bread.
Herod wanted to wait until his festival of Istar, or Easter in order to put Peter to death...
