Good Friday

Friday, April 06, 2007

Good Friday is the Friday before Easter or Pascha. The 'Good' in Good Friday comes from old English when Good meant Holy. So you could call Good Friday, 'Holy Friday'. Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion and death of Jesus at Calvary, an English-language name given to the hill on which Jesus was crucified. This year, it is on April 6, which is today.

Good Friday is a very important day for all Christians. On Good Friday, Christians remember that Jesus died for everyone. He was crucified by the Romans on a hill outside Jerusalem although he had not done anything wrong. He loved us so much that he was willing to take on the sin of the world and die for us, so whom ever believes in Him can have eternal life. When a person was crucified, they were tied and nailed by the wrists and feet to a large wooden cross or scaffold and left to die.

To be know more about Good Friday, you can refer here. Or if you think reading so much words, you can watch Mel Gibson's Passion Of The Christ, where you can directly linked to You Tube from here - Part 1, here - Part 2, here - Part 3, here - Part 4, and here - Part 5. This 5 parts is just half part from the whole movie. The other half parts I'm still searching for it. Will update about it soon when I found it.

The movie is about the last twelve hours of the life of Jesus Christ – from the moment of his arrest, trial to crucifixion – known to Christians as "The Passion". But WARNING here, please be mentally prepared before you watch cause there some violent scenes, as in really violent. It's in Aramaic, believed to have been Jesus's native tongue, Latin and Hebrew, with English sub. Below is the edited clip from the Passion of The Christ..


"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)

That's all from me now. GOD Bless you & He really do LOVE you~
