Passion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday 2017

Good Friday 2017

You may have already watched the Mel Gibson film entitled the Passion of Christ. This film left a lot of viewers in tears for it depicts the difficulties that Christ encountered on his way to being crucified. He was beaten and whipped in front of a crowd who also watched him as he carried a huge heavy cross while wearing a crown made of thorns. It was indeed difficult to watch the scenes of the film for they were just harsh, violent, bloody, and filled with gore. However, there are actually some claims that the sufferings experienced by Christ during the film were far softer and milder than what he actually experienced.All this happened on the day of good Friday.

For your information good friday is also celebrated as Good friday UK , Good Friday in Canada and in many more countries.

According to some research conducted about the weapons used to beat and maul Jesus Christ, his faced would have been unrecognizable after receiving a beating from those weapons. In addition, there are also some researches that say that Christ’s body was so mangled and ripped when he was nailed on the cross that his bones can already be seen.

However, the painful thing about this good Friday 2017 is not the suffering of Christ, but his patience and this unrelenting force which drove him to push relentlessly for the sake of humanity. He wanted to save us all by erasing all of our sins, whatever sin it may be. This implies that all kinds of criminals- thieves, murderers, plunderers, rapists, and all other kinds of criminals – will be forgiven by God because it was Jesus Christ who acted as a sacrifice to save the humankind.

This is what we commemorate during Good Friday. We undergo the same sorrow and pain that Christ experienced not physically but emotionally. We dedicate the entire day to reflect in this sacred act of Jesus Christ and ask for his forgiveness. May this be retained into your mind for the upcoming Good Friday 2017. May you have a solemn day with your friends and family while you remember and commemorate the Passion of Jesus Christ.
