Why Is Friday Called Good Friday

Good Friday is the day that Christians celebrate the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. A few days ago I overheard a conversation between two men and they were wondering what Good Friday was all about. I was surprised that neither one of them knew what Good Friday means, although; one of them did say that it had something to do with Jesus.

One thought on “Why Is Friday Called Good Friday

  1. Quote from news.com.au
    However, we shouldn’t assume “good”, as used in Good Friday, means good at all, religion and history expert Professor Constant Mews tells news.com.au. “Good Friday is one of the most misunderstood phrases we have in the calendar.”
    “Good” in this context, he said, really reflects an archaic meaning of the medieval word “goode” that translates as “holy”. So, it’s really Holy Friday.
