Some might ask why it is called “Good Friday”. There were a lot of things that happened that day that were not so good. An innocent man was tortured and put to death on a cross. While he was dying, his detractors publicly mocked and scorned him. Darkness came over the land at mid-day, frightening many people. An earthquake occurred, and it was reported that there was some damage done at the temple.
How could anyone look at the newspaper report of that day and decide to call it “Good Friday”?
It was Good Friday because a Good Savior obeyed a Good God by fulfilling a Good Plan to save mankind. Yes, it was a good day.
