Good Friday

Why was “Good Friday” good?

Matthew 27:11-56

Mark 15:1-41

Jesus dying on the cross for us sinners is why today is a “Good Friday.” It is the day our sins were washed away for good. No more animal sacrifice for a temporary cleansing. John 3:16 says that God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that who ever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

We were made clean by His sacrifice.

Isaiah 53:5, “But He was wounded for our transgressions

I Below is a time line of events on this day. Take time to reflect on what Jesus went through for you!

• 4 to 6 AM. Jesus Taken to Annas and Caiaphas. …

• 6 to 8 AM. Jesus’s Trial Before Pontius Pilate. …

• 9 AM. Jesus Is Crucified. …

• 9 AM to 12 PM. Soldiers Cast Lots for Jesus’s Clothes. …

• 12 to 3 PM. The Earth Responds. …

• 3 PM. Jesus Dies. …

• 3 to 6 PM. Soldiers Pierce Jesus’s Side.


On Good Friday, blessed Jesus, we lament the sin and evil that made this horror necessary. But we are also grateful for your sacrifice. Help us prepare for resurrected living. In your holy name, Amen.
