Why Good Friday?


“Why is it called good Friday when it commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus?”

This is a question asked over and over again.

Indeed, though the deed itself was an ugly one, some two thousand plus years ago, it was the promise of His return that held out hope and made it almost bearable to bear.

It is that hope that so many of us cling to that gives such meaning to the Easter season and all seasons before and after.

It is that hope, that some day we will see Him face to face, as His disciples did after that heartbreaking Friday. That hope carries us through to Easter Sunday.
