Why do they call this Good Friday?

Posted by Picasa


  1. because it was the day that God made a way for us to come back to him; He gave himself.
    you ask a lot of good questions, keep asking.

  2. Uh oh, what happened to this precious bird?

  3. Could possibly have come down from God's Friday. Or perhaps from the good and meaningfulness that came from the day.

    Excellent question.


    Word verification on this post -- defie. Appropriate for this day. Jesus defied mortal men, but obeyed his Father to pay the price for our sins.

  4. I have often wonder the same thing. Why call it Good Friday. I am a christian and I know why Jesus died on the cross for us. Have a great day and a blessed Easter. Madeline

  5. Good enough reason to have a Bank Holiday in Britain, so we don't knock it.
    Seriously it is meant to represent the day Jesus died on the cross followed by his ascention. It is not a recognised special day in pre-Christian beliefs as days were not as important as moon and sun cycles.
    Thanks for following my blog, I hope to give you a taste of the countryside.

  6. Poor little bird. What happened to it and where did you find it?

  7. How strange for it to die mid-flight like that with it's little wings still stretched out with places to go. Reminds me of the young ones that die in their hundreds on the roads.....all in a hurry with somewhere to go but never make it.
