Story of Good Friday 

Story behind good friday

The story of Good Friday begins with Jesus Christ, who was a Jewish man born in the town of Bethlehem. He grew up in the nearby town of Nazareth and began his ministry when he was about 30 years old.

Jesus traveled around the region of Galilee, teaching people about God and healing the sick. He gathered a group of followers and began to preach about God’s kingdom.

The religious leaders of the time were threatened by Jesus’ popularity, and they began to plot against him. They finally had him arrested and brought to trial on charges of blasphemy.

Blasphemy is a serious crime in Judaism and is punishable by death. The penalty for blasphemy was stoning, but the Roman authorities did not allow this.

So, instead, Jesus was sentenced to death by crucifixion. He was crucified on a cross, along with two criminals.

After Jesus died, his body was taken down from the cross and buried in a tomb. Good Friday is the day that we remember and commemorate Jesus’s sacrificial death on the cross.
