It seems like the supreme paradox, calling the day of Jesus’ death Good Friday. 

It’s good because:

  • It shows God’s great love for man
  • He died for mankind’s sins
  • He conquered death so that believers may have eternal life

It seems like the supreme paradox, calling the day of Jesus’ death Good Friday.

Good Friday and Easter Sunday are crucial days of the year for Christians. Good Friday commemorates the day Jesus willingly suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for man’s sins. That’s why Christians say “Christ bore our sins, He died for us.”

On the third day, Jesus was raised from the dead. Easter or Resurrection Sunday is the glorious celebration of Jesus’ resurrection, heralding his victory over sin and death and bringing eternal salvation to believers.

As dark and bleak as the event was, Good Friday marked the dramatic culmination of God’s plan to save His people from their sins. And as terrible as that day was, it had to happen for believers to receive the joy of Easter.

So Good Friday is good because God showed His great love for man by giving His one and only son, Jesus, to die for the sins of mankind so that everyone who believes in Him will be set free from eternal death and have eternal life.

That’s why Good Friday is good news.
