Good Friday History
Good Friday commemorates the day that Jesus was crucified. Following Jesus' arrest, he was found guilty of proclaiming himself to be the King of Jews. He was sentenced to crucifixion. This day is celebrated a number of ways. These include 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 preceding Palm Sunday. Other churches hold an Easter Vigil on Saturday night to bring the light of Christ back into the church.
