Healthy Friday falls on April 2nd this year, in the year 2021. It is the Christian community’s most important festival. ‘Holy Friday’ or ‘Perfect Friday’ are other names for Good Friday. In different countries, this festival is known by different names. People do not congratulate or wish each other on this day, but rather mourn.
This is because it was on this day that Jesus was crucified. The question that will arise in your mind is why, if Jesus Christ was crucified on this day, is it still called ‘Good Friday?’ What is the backstory to this and why is it so relevant these days?
What is the significance of the name “Good Friday”?
This is based on a variety of values. Friday is considered to be the day Jesus died. But, if that’s the case, why is it called ‘Good’? Religious people claim that Jesus gave his life to express his love for humanity. He is also said to have made the greatest sacrifice for all of humanity’s sins. Despite the fact that it was a bad day, it paved the way for mankind’s redemption. Since two days later, on Sunday, Jesus was reborn and raised from the dead. As a result, this day was given the name ‘Good,’ which represents the triumph of good over evil.
Easter Sunday was two days later.
The Christian community’s biggest festival is Good Friday. Only on Fridays between March 20 and April 23 before Easter Sunday is it observed. On this day, members of the Christian faith believe in Jesus Christ, who was crucified. After two crucifixions, Jesus Christ rose from the dead, on Sunday, and Easter Sunday is celebrated in his name.
Every year, the date of Good Friday changes. This event begins on Thursday, the day before Good Friday. On this day, it is said that Jesus washed his 12 disciples’ feet and shared his last meal with them. The church’s father washes 12 feet in honour of this. At the same moment, in Vatican City, the Christian religious Pope washes and kisses the feet of 12 people.
