Good Friday is a day of significant religious significance for those who practice Christianity. Easter commemorates the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is considered one of the most significant religious occasions in India. However, despite its name, Good Friday is not a happy day. On this day, it is recommended to refrain from wishing others “Happy Good Friday.”

Good Friday is a day of remembrance and penance.

According to the New Testament, on this day the Romans crucified Jesus. Jesus’ claim that he was the Son of God resulted in accusations of sacrilege. Jesus’ assertions offended the Jewish religious authorities, so they handed him over to the Romans.

The Roman governor Pontius Pilate had ordered the execution of Jesus Christ. One of his adherents, Judas, was rewarded with thirty pieces of silver for having him apprehended by Roman troops. He informed the Roman soldiers that he was kissing Jesus and that they were to arrest him. This incident served as the inspiration for Gustave DorĂ©’s 1866 masterpiece “The Kiss of Judas.”

Why is the day known as Good Friday?

On the day of his crucifixion, Jesus carried the cross to the site of his execution, known in Latin as Calvary. He was fastened by his wrists and ankles to the crucifix he was bearing. He was positioned in this position on the cross until his death.

On this day, Christians commemorate the sacrifices of Jesus, the manner in which he was crucified, his afflictions, the tortures he endured, and his agonizing death. The day following Good Friday is Easter Sunday, the day of celebration. This day commemorates Jesus’ resurrection from the grave, which according to the New Testament occurred three days after his burial. It is also the reason why no one wishes you a “Happy Good Friday.”

In German-speaking countries, Good Friday is typically referred to as Karfreitag, which translates to “Mourning Friday.”
