Good Friday?

What's that all about?

Aren't all Friday's good?

Well to understand the whole thing you have to go back a night, to a Thursday two thousand years ago.

Back in the first century a bunch of friends got together for a party, not that kind of party, an dinner party to celebrate something that had happened a long time ago. The Holiday {originally spelled Holy Day} was called the Passover and was about their people being set free from slavery, to the Egyptians. God had told this guy Moses to lead his people out of slavery and after a bunch of weird things happening, he did. So God tells them to remember this every year and make it a Holyday.

{Check out the movie "the Ten Commandments" with Charlton Heston, not completely accurate, but close enough.}

Well back in the first century, these guys are celebrating it with their leader/teacher Jesus. When he turns to one of the guys and tells him to do his deed now. So Judas leaves and goes and narqs on them to the religious nuts in charge. The rest of them head out to the garden for some air.

Jesus tells some of his closest friends to go up into the garden farther as he had something to do. So he goes up and starts praying for Friday {see it is about Friday} and the stuff he has to do. Well the narq Judas shows up and Judas kisses him on the cheek! Well this was a sign for the guys with swords and spears to grab the teacher Jesus. The hall him off to night court to try him and they convict him with out a jury! Sentence him to death for saying stuff they don't believe!

Well their country is in the hands of the Romans that invaded them, so they can't kill him. They go to the Romans and tell them to kill him! After some shuffling the local Roman "Boss" decides that Jesus is cool and tries to get the religious people to let him go. The Boss brings out a local murderer and asks them which one to set free, because it's their Holy Day and he wants to let someone go free. They load the hall with their people and get the murderer set free! Murdered the innocent and protect the murderer of the innocent, religious nuts!

The Boss ask what to do with Jesus and they scream out to kill him! He decides to beat him almost to death and see if that would do. Well the soldiers go overboard and when they get done he doesn't even look human! They bring him out and show what they did.

The Boss asks if that's enough and they scream out "No, kill him!"

He says "The man is in your hands you do as you wish, his blood is on your hands."

The religious scream "That's great, kill him!"

So early Friday morning they make him carry his cross up a hill and crucify him.
{See "the Passion of the Christ"}

He dies and they bury him.

Good Friday!

God Bless!
