The world will observe Good Friday on April 2 this year. It is seen by Christians a day before Easter to celebrate the torturous killing of Jesus Christ at Calvary Hills. As indicated by the Bible, Jesus was killed to death in the most fierce manner. The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). It says that he was beaten, tormented, and made to convey his own cross prior to being killed on it. Good Friday additionally denotes the finish of more than a month long of fasting called Lent. It is a period during which Christians pray, fast and give offerings.
There are several beliefs. It is believed that the day Jesus died was Friday. But why then call it ‘good.’ Religious people firmly believe that Jesus sacrificed his life to show his love for mankind. It is also being said that he gave the ultimate sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. Despite it being a terrible day, it paved the way for the salvation of mankind as Jesus resurrected and came back to life two days later i.e. on Sunday. Christians marked it as ‘Good’ as a symbol of victory of good over evil.
