Why is Good Friday so good?
Good Friday sure didn’t feel good as it was unfolding. An angry, chaotic mob shouted for the release of the criminal Barabbas instead of the innocent Jesus. Those closest to Jesus wondered how this could possibly be happening. He has healed the sick and raised the dead – what wrong has he done that warrants this kind of punishment? The One who knew no sin was beaten, mocked, spat upon, adorned with a crown of thorns, hit in the face, and forced to…

Why We Broke from Tradition on Good Friday (and started a new one)
April 24, 2019 | By: Sam Storms In countless churches here in OKC and throughout the country, people gathered last week to observe what we call Good Friday. You will notice that I did not say they gathered to “celebrate” Good Friday.

What’s with Good Friday?
The Lord of life and glory was nailed to the accursed tree. He died by the act of guilty men. We, by our sins, crucified the Son of God We might have expected that, in remembrance of his death, we should have been called to a long, sad, rigorous fast. Do not many men think so even today?

Why is it Called Good Friday?
It seems odd to commemorate an innocent man being brutally executed and then call it "Good" Friday But on that Friday almost 2,000 years ago, they didn't just execute an innocent man; they crucified God in the flesh.

That's good, even though His friends and family wouldn't have called that Friday "good" until two days later when He rose again. Today, remember the sacrifice Christ made. Consider…
