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.
