It's on this day that, as per the Gospel, Jesus was killed and died for the sins of man, leading to his eventual resurrection on Easter Sunday.
Good Friday, basically, commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus and his death on the cross. Why would this be "good?"
"Because Jesus is going to the cross to die for our wrongdoings," said Heinrich. "Jesus goes obediently to the cross. He knows the reason."
Good Friday is a crucial day of the year as it celebrates the most momentous weekend in Christianity.
Nowadays, most Christian denominations teach that all who are good will receive this resurrection, regardless of whether they aren't practicing Christians.
