Good Friday

Good Friday or Holy Friday is a religious holiday observed mainly by Christians. It commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary.  The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Holy Friday, good Friday, Black Friday.

The estimated year of the Crucifixion is AD 33, by two different groups, and originally as AD 34 by Isaac Newton via the differences between the Biblical and Julian calendars and the crescent of the moon.

During the Holy Week, it is observed before Easter Sunday when Jesus Christ is resurrected. Based on the Bible's Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), the Crucifixion of Jesus was most likely on a Friday, the Jewish day of Preparation, according to John 19:38-42.

Verse Quoted:

"... because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors." ~ Isaiah 53:12


Verse is taken from the Holy Bible, NIV. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 2001.
