Good Friday by revnick | Apr 6, 2012 | Reflections | 1 comment Today is the day. Jesus Christ is accused, abused, and hung on a tree. My friends Deb submitted this video to Cruxifusion. Watch it. Feel it. Enjoyed this?

Good Friday is a time to remember the Spiritual, emotional and physical pain, and physical death Jesus suffered for us. In order to fully appreciate the true significance of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday, with all the positive feelings it nurtures, we should be willing to feel as much as possible the pain, suffering, and hopelessness experienced by followers of Jesus who were present at the time of His physical death on the cross, as unsavoury an experience as that might be for us. While this video is effectively done, it represents a attempt to find something positive about Good Friday when in fact, save for Jesus’ willingness to die for our sins, there is nothing much good about the events of Good Friday. Any attempt to soft-pedal the events of Good Friday can only detract from the significance of the Resurrection on Easter sunday. The Christ event chronicles a journey from the ultimate despair of Good Friday to the ultimate joy provided by the hope inherent in Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday. As Christians we need to feel both the pain and the joy of the Christ event equally in order to fully appreciate and understand the significance of the events of Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
