Holy Week Timeline for Good Friday – “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34, NIV)

One Walk with Jesus on this Good Friday is about knowing His passion, feeling His love and ‘accepting’ Him. So answer the question He asked… who do you say He is?

Good Friday…

The Trial, Crucifixion, Death, and Burial

Good Friday is the most difficult day of Passion Week. Christ’s journey turned treacherous and acutely painful in these final hours leading to his death.

According to Scripture, Judas Iscariot, the disciple who had betrayed Jesus, was overcome with remorse and hanged himself early Friday morning.

Meanwhile, before the third hour (9 a.m.), Jesus endured the shame of false accusations, condemnation, mockery, beatings, and abandonment. After multiple unlawful trials, he was sentenced to death by crucifixion, one of the most horrible and disgraceful methods of capital punishment known at the time.

Before Christ was led away, soldiers spit on him, tormented and mocked him, and pierced him with a crown of thorns. Then Jesus carried his own cross to Calvary where, again, he was mocked and insulted as Roman soldiers nailed him to the wooden cross.

Jesus spoke seven final statements from the cross. His first words were, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." (Luke 23:34, NIV). His last words were, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." (Luke 23:46, NIV)

Then, about the ninth hour (3 p.m.), Jesus breathed his last breath and died.

By 6 p.m. Friday evening, Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea took Jesus’ body down from the cross and lay it in a tomb.

Friday’s events are recorded in Matthew 27:1-62, Mark 15:1-47, Luke 22:63-23:56, and John 18:28-19:37.

The Words Written in Red

I believe everyone should read the Bible, or start with the New Testament from beginning to end, or at least start with the four Gospels starting with John, Luke, Matthew and Mark. Or the Words written in red, those spoken by Jesus. You can do this with The Words Jesus of Nazareth, compiled by Lee Cantelon. Read Jesus’ words thematically, in clear and modern English, for non-Christians, spiritual seekers, agnostics and believers.

A prayer…

Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior, thank You for the Cross. While Jesus is worthy, I know I am not, we are not, but through Jesus Christ my savior, our savior, we are made new. Thank You! In Jesus name I pray. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
