Good Friday: All You Need to Know

Good Friday

Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Lord Jesus and his death. Good Friday always comes on the Friday before Easter. The Christian community marks this day with fasting and church services. It is a sorrowful day for all as it is the day when Jesus sacrificed himself. Good Friday date varies from year to year and a holiday is observed on this day in various countries.

Why is it called “Good” Friday?

Good Friday is a dark day for most of the people but it is the most momentous moment in the history of Christianity. It is the day when Lord Jesus willingly sacrificed for the sins committed by the people. Hence, this day honours the sufferings of Jesus Christ. It is the decisive turning point of the creation leading to the resurrection of Jesus on the third day after Good Friday i.e. Easter. It is the tale of love, truth and sacrifice guiding the people to be true to themselves and follow the path of love.

What happened on Good Friday?

On this day, the religious leaders arrested Jesus Christ for claiming to be the son of God. Jesus’ disciple Judas Iscariot betrayed him and helped the guard in the arrest of Jesus for a reward of 30 silver coins. After the arrest, Jesus was interrogated and ultimately given the sentence of death. He was then crucified on the cross along with 2 other criminals. It is believed that Jesus was alive on the cross for 6 hours and for the last 3 hours, darkness fell across the land.
