The Crucifixion and Death of Jesus Christ

Good Friday. What is it that makes this day good? This particular Friday is the day Jesus Christ, a carpenter and itinerant preacher is condemned to the most excruciating and embarrassing form of death. He is sentenced to a criminal’s cross to die. All of this is part of the Father’s plan. Through the death of Jesus Christ, our sins have once and for all been dealt with so that all who look to him in faith might be forgiven. And that is good news and why we call it Good Friday.
