He was teaching his disciples, saying to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him. And when he is killed, after three days he will rise.” – Mark 9:31

Jesus died. Process that for a moment: the man who fed thousands, raised the dead, healed the sick, caused the lame to walk and the blind to see and who spoke a message of love even his most ardent deniers in this day cherish…this man was killed on a cross. It doesn’t seem a good thing. Calling the day that our Lord and savior died good seems a bit contradictory. But his act of suffering allows us to trade our own suffering joy, our own death for life, our own sin for righteousness. Why call it Good Friday? Watch below.
