The significance of Good Friday

Posted: Friday, April 3, 2015. 11:28 am CST.

Friday, April 3rd 2015. Devon Young Reporting: Good Friday is traditionally celebrated as the day when Jesus was crucified and it is held every Friday that immediately precedes Easter Sunday.
Christians honor and celebrate the event by fasting, offering prayers and performing meditation and most often spend the day in repentance. index
Today millions of Christians worldwide observe the somber holy day of Good Friday, which commemorates the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus.
The faithful often act it out by carrying a large wooden cross and crown of thorns symbolic of the suffering of Christ.

Timothy George, Divinity School Dean at Samford University in Alabama, USA described Holy Friday as follows, “Theologically, we must keep Good Friday and Easter together. Good Friday without Easter is doom and despair. Easter without Good Friday is empty sentiment and sentimentality. We have to remember what Jesus did on the cross, which is the fulfillment of God’s eternal plan for the whole world. It has cosmic consequences.”

Usually the holidays start from Good Friday and end on Easter Monday with rejoicing and celebrating Jesus’ resurrection after his death.
