1 Whats so good about Good Friday 2 Have you ever asked yourself Why is it called Good Friday 3 Reading what happened on Good Friday it seems far from good. An innocent man has just been declared guilty in front of a baying mob he is dragged before two further courts who insult him and beat him up in a really violent manner. He is abandoned by all of his friends who he has lived in community with for the last 3 years and one of his closest friends even denies him vehemently with an expletive ridden denial.

The Father sent the son Jesus on a rescue mission and that is why Good Friday is so good. Jesus took our place he died the death we should have died. The bible again says For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5 v 21) This is often called The great exchange our sin for his goodness. He took All our sin on that first Good Friday. 8 All we need to do is repent (say sorry) and believe. We can now become followers of Jesus because if we truly understand what happened we will never be the same again and we will be accepted by God forever and not just that but in relationship with Him.
