Good Friday marks Jesus Christ’s crucifixion at Calvary and his resurrection. This is performed as part of the Paschal Triduum, or The Three Days, which ends on Easter Sunday with the evening prayer. On 10th April 2020, Good Friday will be observed this time.
Accounts in the Gospels speak about how royal troops imprisoned him in the Garden of Gethsemane, under the guidance of Christ’s apostle Judas Iscariot. It is assumed that Jesus bore his cross to the execution site known as the “skull spot” or Golgotha. In the end, he was crucified along with two others.
It’s said Jesus spent six hours on the cross. The land turned dark in the last three hours. He soon yielded his spirit with a scream. The body of Jesus was wrapped in a clean linen shroud and removed by Arimathea’s Joseph, and buried in his own new grave. According to Matthew 28:1, “After the Shabbat, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb at dawn on the first day of the week.” “He is not here; as he said, he is rising ….” (Matt. 28:6)
