    We can't really call it "Friday before Easter" or "bad Friday"

    It is "good" because of the great gift God gave us in the death of His Son to pay for our sins. I can't think of anything more "good" than that.

    True, SF. The death of Christ wasn't really "happy" or anything, but it was truly good in what it did. Jesus told us to remember his death, not just to skip to the ressurection that we celebrate on Easter Sunday.

    Jesus is the English adaptation of the Hebrew name Jeshua, which I believe refers to "God saves." John the Baptist or "immerser" is the prophesied individual who is the fore-runner to the Messiah. He prepares the way for the hearts of the people to acknowledge their sin. When the people acknowledge their sin, Jesus provides them the way to not not only avoid the consequences of their sin, but, among many things, to have eternal life, through faith.

    It is good because God, in his infinate love and wisdom, did the greatest good. Jesus, very God of very God, sacrificed himself so that we could live and be before God. To be with him. RU and SF are correct. We must remember the sacrifice not just the gift.


    I try to conduct my life around on simple statement, command (although I often fall short of the goal). It sums up everything to me. It cause me to constantly stop and think (and bob myself on the forehead before I slowly turn and apologize). It is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." God Bless, eat well, and enjoy your time together.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.
