Good Friday, also called as “Holy Friday,” is the Friday immediately foregoing Easter Sunday. Worldwide It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus was crucified. Assuming that Jesus was crucified and died on a Friday, should Christians remember Jesus’ death by celebrating Good Friday?
The Bible does not teach Christians to remember Christ’s death by honoring a certain day. The Bible gives us freedom in these matters, however.
Romans 14:5 tells us, “One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.”
Rather than remembering Christ’s death on a certain day, once a year, the Bible instructs us to remember Christ’s death by observing the Lord’s Supper.
First Corinthians 11:24-26 declares, “He thanked God for it. Then he broke it and said, `Take this bread and eat it. This is my body which is broken for you. Do this so that you will remember me. In the same way, after they had eaten, he took the cup. He said, `This cup is the new agreement made by my blood. Every time you drink from this cup, do it to remember me. Every time you eat this bread and drink from this cup you tell about the Lord’s death, until he comes again.”
Why is Good Friday referred to as “good”? What the Jewish authorities and Romans did to Jesus was definitely not good however, the results of Christ’s death are very good!
Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
First Peter 3:18 tells us, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.”
