Good Friday History
Good Friday serves to commemorate the day that Jesus was crucified. Following Jesus' arrest, he is found guilty of proclaiming himself to be the King of Jews. Jesus was sentenced to crucifixion. This day is celebrated in a number of different ways, from taking down the cross in the Orthodox faith to recounting the story of Jesus' last days, which is called the Passion of Christ. For many churches, Good Friday is the final service of Holy Week, following Holy Thursday and Palm Sunday. Other churches hold an Easter Vigil on Saturday night to bring the light of Christ back into the church.
