✞🙏✞ Good Friday ✞🙏✞
The history of Good Friday also known as #HolyFriday #GreatFriday #BlackFriday goes back to 1st-century Judea, most likely in 30 CE or 33 CE.
In the biblical story Jesus shared the Last Supper with his disciples on what is now marked as #MaundyThursday
He was then betrayed by his follower Judas Iscariot, who revealed his location to the Romans in return for 30 pieces of silver.
The Jewish religious leaders condemned Jesus for claiming to be the son of God and king of the Jews.
He was sent from Pontius Pilate to Herod and then back to Pilate, who ultimately sentenced Jesus to crucifixion—the highest form of criminal punishment at the time. Jesus was then beaten, forced to carry a heavy wooden cross through jeering crowds and finally nailed to the cross by his wrists and feet, where he hung until he died, later that day.
In the Gospel of Luke, we are told that during Our Blessed Lord’s crucifixion, there were two other men suffering the same death, one to either side of Him. The one to Christ’s right has become known as the “Good Thief,” while the one to His left is referred to as the “Unrepentant Thief.”
While both men were suffering the same gruesome execution and were both in the presence of Christ, their reactions to their situation are quite different. One says, “Are You not the Messiah? Save Yourself and us.” & asks to come down from his cross.
But the other proclaims Christ’s innocence & does not ask to be taken down from his sure and painful death. He asks, instead, to be taken up with Christ, saying “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.” Jesus replies to saying, “Amen, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.” ✞🙏✞
