Good Friday 2020
Everyone must have heard about “Good Friday”, but do you really know why it is called. So let’s discuss the significance of this holy festival and this year we will celebrate on the 10th of April 2020.
Good Friday Bible Story
According to The Holy Bible, Jesus Christ was crucified & died on the cross at Calvary and This was Friday so it is called Good Friday.
In some countries, it’s also known as Holy Friday or Black Friday And this day is very important for all Christians. He sacrificed his life for our sins.
For every human being showing his selfless love for his people. Because of Jesus Christ’s death, people will not have to suffer eternally for their sins.
On that day, Jesus Christ was tortured very brutally by the Roman soldiers. He was beaten up, whipped publicly, he was mocked down & people spat on him.
A crown of thorns was put on Jesus Christ’s head to degrade him. His clothes were stripped off. When Jesus Christ was thirsty the Roman soldiers forcefully gave him a mixture of sour vinegar to drink.
After all tortures and punishment, He was then crucified along with two other criminals. And The final wound was on Jesus Christ; which was pierced by the Lance of Longinus to make sure that he was dead.
On this day Jesus Christ was crucified & was tied & nailed by the wrist & feet to a large wooden cross & was left to die. That is why a cross is often used as a symbol in the Christian faith.
Good Friday Celebration
This day is spent in Fasting, in prayers & repentance on the suffering of Jesus Christ & also spent in mourning on the death of Jesus Christ. For repentance, most of the people fast for 40 days which is also known as Lent.
Many Christians also refuse to eat meat these days. In some churches, they also have 3 hours of adoration service which starts at 3 pm in the afternoon.
In some churches, there are no flowers, no pictures, the alter, the statue & the cross are draped in black to represent mourning.
According to the scriptures, Jesus was placed on the cross at 9 am and when the darkness covered the land from noon until Jesus’s death at 3 pm.
So this 3 hours service includes hymns, prayers & sermons from the Holy Bible… Followed by the Mass. Processions are organized by churches around the world to educate people & draw their attention to this day.
The death of Jesus symbolizes his love & forgiveness for all mankind’s sins, with Jesus taking the ultimate sacrifice for the good of all humans across the world.
