What is so good about Good Friday?

Posted: 2014/04/09 in Uncategorized

Good Friday April 18, 2014 is the day on which I commemorate the death of Jesus Christ on the Cross, the act that brought salvation to all who believe. The Last Supper or the Seder Dinner is held at sundown every year on the 14th of Nisan.

Seder is held the 14th day of Nisan which does not always fall on the same day as “Good Friday” on the Gregorian calendar.

Nisan is the first month of the ecclesiastical year. The name of the month is Babylonian; in the Torah, it is called the month of the Aviv, referring to the month in which barley was ripe. It is a spring month of 30 days.

Nisan usually falls in March–April on the Gregorian calendar. From the new, moon In Aviv, count out 14 days. It begins about the time of the vernal equinox (March 21). Days are then the same length as the night and start to get shorter until December 25, which is when the days begin to lengthen again and equal at the vernal equinox.

Passover begins on the 15th day in the month of Nisan on the Jewish calendar, which is in spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and is celebrated for seven or eight days.

Good Friday is the culmination of Holy Week, which begins on Palm Sunday, and it takes place two days before Easter Sunday when, believers around the world celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.

What is so good about this Friday in the month of Nisan is that it marks the death and resurrection of the promised messiah. This Good Friday has divided the known world forever into those who believe Jesus rose from the dead and those who do not.

Habeas Corpus means in Latin show us the body in our legal system of justice. Most agree the historical Jesus was captured by the Temple Guards and put to death by the Roman soldiers. The Romans reported him dead and placed a spear in his side to verify he was dead.

The next day Mary Magdalene went to the tomb of Jesus where she thought she saw a Gardener. The Gardener said he was Jesus and pointed to the inside of the grave where she saw two angels. If this happened today as then no one would believe her.

Mary could not have been a credible witness under Roman law, so if she saw Jesus it does not matter because her testimony would never have gotten into the court records. However, no one has produced a body that I know of to this day and there were several credible witnesses who claimed to have seen him in a rented hall in Jerusalem after his reported death on the cross.

The body of Jesus has never been found unless you believe that his body and blood are alive and flowing through the blood streams of his followers after the transmutation on the Last Supper. “This is my body”, and gave them wine saying, “This is my blood”.

That is why Friday of Holy Week is good and is celebrated every year. Because, the death of Christ, as terrible as it was, led to his Resurrection from the dead on Easter Sunday, which brought with it new life and hope of eternal life to those who believe.

I know where his body is, it is in everyone who believes and Jesus will never die as long as one believer is still alive that believer is me…
