The Friday before Easter Sunday is widely commemorated by Christians as the day Jesus was hung on a cross.

So what is so good about Good Friday?

Why on earth would Christians refer to this day as “good” Friday?

It’s called Good Friday because even while powerful men were conspiring to kill the Son of God, God himself was acting to save the world from itself, once and for all.
