Today is easter Sunday and is the celebration of Jesus’s resurrection.
Good Friday, also called Holy Friday or Black Friday is the Friday before Easter Sunday. Christians all around the world recognize it as the day Jesus was crucified. If you want to find out more about the crucifixion process click here.
Going back some time, Jesus had actually warned his disciples of what was going too happen on Good Friday. As a result of this, we can learn a lot about what happened on Good Friday from this verse in Matthew.
From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.
Many Christian churches all around the world celebrate Good Friday with a reflexive service, usually in the evening, in which the death of Christ is remembered with hymns, prayers, a message or talk centered around how Jesus suffered for our sake, and observance of the Lord’s Supper. The video below takes you through the events of Jesus last day on Earth, before being crucified. (If you have problems viewing the video, click here)
I’d firstly like to apologise about the timing of this post, we had a slight miscommunication error.
In the 15th century Leonardo Da Vinci painted a picture of the last supper. Today is Maundy Thursday and is the reminder of Jesus`s last supper, washing of his disciples feet and finally being betrayed by Judas. Jesus knew full well throughout the day what was going to happen to him throughout the next day.
This has been a fairly short post but look forward to tomorrows post all about Good Friday.

This is the first post in our Easter week series. Every important day throughout the coming week a post will come talking about what happened on that day and how that affects us today.
Today is Palm Sunday and is the celebration of Jesus going into Jerusalem.
Jesus asked two of his disciples to go to a nearby town where they would find a donkey tied there. Jesus said “Untie it and bring it to me.” Sure enough when they got to the town there was a donkey tied up so they took it to Jesus. They then put a coat on the donkeys back and Jesus began to ride into Jerusalem. A large crowd formed and they put their coats on the floor to from a path for the donkey to walk upon. Other people cut of branches and shouted Hosanna in the highest heavens. Years before this happened a prophecy had been made which prophesised the exact thing happening. You can read this in Zechariah 9:9 which says “Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
Whilst all this was happening the Pharisees were very angry with Jesus and thought he was just a trouble maker and not the son of God. The Pharisees would probably know the prophecy in Zechariah however think it can’t be true as if he really was a king he`d come in on a chariot not a donkey. They didn’t think he was a king because he didn’t fit the mould of what a king should be in their heads.
