GOOD FRIDAY (April 2’ 2021)

Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary. According to the Bible, Jesus was flogged, ordered to carry the cross on which he would be crucified and then put to death. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Great and Holy Friday (also Holy and Great Friday), and Black Friday.

Members of many Christian denominations, observe Good Friday with fasting and church services. [It is an article of faith, generally, of the Muslims, that Jesus, son of Mary, a mighty prophet, did not die on the Cross, he was lifted alive to Heavens].

From the early days of Christianity, Good Friday was observed as a day of sorrow, penance, and fasting (“Sorrowful Friday”).

Good Friday will be celebrated on Friday, April 2, this year (2021). Christians, however, do not commemorate Good Friday / Easter on a fixed date every year. Instead, they follow the apparently flexible date of the Passover (a Jewish Celebration)—which conforms to the Jewish lunisolar calendar rather than the Gregorian solar calendar.

Until the 4th century, Jesus’ Last Supper (on Thursday,  to celebrate PASSOVER), his death (Crucifixion on Friday), and his Resurrection (on Sunday) were observed in one single commemoration on the evening before Easter. Since then, those three events have been observed separately—Easter (Sunday), as the commemoration of Jesus’ Resurrection, being considered the pivotal event. Easter (Sunday), also called Pascha or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, on the third day after his burial following his crucifixion (on Friday) by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD

From St. Augustine in the 4th century to Martin Luther in the 16th, some of the most eloquent and persuasive Christian theologians excoriated the Jews as rebels against God and murderers of the Lord Jesus. They were described as companions of the Devil and a race of vipers. Church liturgy, particularly the scriptural readings for the Good Friday commemoration of the Crucifixion, contributed to this enmity. Such views were recently / finally renounced by the Roman Catholic Church after Holocaust.
