What’s So Good About Good Friday?

Good Friday marks a moment that has split humanity apart. Every human ever born on this earth must decide where they stand in regard to the events that took place 1,973 years ago on AD 33 in Jerusalem, Israel.

Jesus of Nazareth died on behalf of all humanity at the merciless hands of Roman soldiers and the wishes of a frenzied mob of His fellow countrymen. There, He was crucified at 9am (the 3rd hour of the day according to the Hebrew clock), and died at 3pm (the 9th hour). The significance of this act was that He was the prophesied lamb of God, which was scheduled to be sacrificed at the temple exactly at the ninth hour on this particular day, Passover.

What was so good about this act is the resulting resurrection that following Sunday! Jesus rose from the dead and is alive now and forever. He defeated death and His ultimate enemy Satan, and because of this, all people who believe that Christ died for their sins and rose from the dead, will have forgiveness from God and will enter eternity with Him forever in heaven.

That’s what’s so good about Good Friday.
