Good Friday being observed today all over the world; PM Modi remembers courage, sacrifices of Jesus Christ on the occasion
Today is Good Friday. It is observed to commemorate the day of the crucifixion of Jesus. On this day Jesus Christ sacrificed his life out of love for everyone and while suffering for the sins of humanity. On the occasion of Good Friday, people wish one another strength and happiness.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today remembered the courage and sacrifices of Jesus Christ on Good Friday. In a tweet, Mr Modi said, his ideals of service and brotherhood are the guiding light for several people.
AIR correspondent reports that Good Friday is the Friday before Easter, on which Christians annually observe the commemoration of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. From the early days of Christianity, Good Friday was observed as a day of sorrow, penance, and fasting.
‘Good Friday’ comes from the obsolete sense ‘pious, holy’ of the word “good”.
According to the accounts in the Gospels, the royal soldiers, arrested Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. Following his arrest, Jesus was tried and sentenced to be crucified. Jesus carried his cross to the site of execution, there he was crucified.
Jesus agonized on the cross for six hours. During his last three hours on the cross, from noon to 3 pm, darkness fell over the whole land. With a loud cry, Jesus gave up his spirit.
Christians believe that God raised Jesus on the third day after his crucifixion, starting – or restoring – his exalted life as Christ and Lord. Easter celebrates Jesus’ supernatural resurrection from the dead, which established Jesus as the Son of God and is cited as proof that God will righteously judge the world.
