Good Friday 2022: Significance and history
Good Friday commemorates the day of crucifixion of Jesus Christ. According to the Holy Bible, Jesus Christ was tortured and beaten, and then made to carry his cross before he was crucified. Upon hearing this history, many have over the years wondered why Good Friday is celebrated as a ‘Good’ day. There could be several reasons for that.
Some followers believe it to be good due to the fact that it was a Holy Day as Jesus’ crucifixion is seen as the sacrifice made by the son or agent of God for the sake of eventual victory. This, as per the followers of Christianity, marks the love of Jesus for the humankind.
It is also believed that Good Friday could be a distortion of “God’s Friday”, as the day could have originally been called.
Good, according to the Oxford Dictionary, could also mean to be used for a day that the Church observes to be holy.
