Easter Week - Friday

About midnight, Jesus was taken into Jerusalem, first to Annas then to Caiaphas and the Sanhedrin. He was mocked and maltreated, denied by Peter, tried and condemned by the Jews. He was taken before Pilate, then Herod and returned to Pilate, who condemned him and delivered him up to be crucified.

It was the custom to release one prisoner during the Feast of the Passover. The crowd chose to free Barabbas, a convicted robber and murder.

Jesus was taken to a hill called Golgotha or Calvary to be crucified. He was offered a drink of medicated vinegar to ease the pain, but he would not drink it. The Roman soldiers drove nails through his hands and feet and placed his cross between two criminals. As the soldiers finished their awful task, Jesus prayed with great mercy, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." He asked John to take care and protect his mother, Mary. At noonday, darkness covered the land. "My God, my God, why hast thou forsake me?" Jesus atoned for us by suffering in Gesthemene and by giving his life on the cross. Heavenly Father had to let him do it alone. Jesus gave up his life, it was not taken from him. The Roman soldiers cast lots for his robe.

He was buried in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea.

Today is called Good Friday, Holy Friday, Great Friday or Black Friday.

Hope this is a Good Friday for you.
