this week christians observe holy week, a celebration of the passion and resurrection of jesus christ that marks the end of the 40 day season of spiritual preparation known as lent. every day of holy week is also known as holy. for example, jesus celebrated the last supper with his disciples on holy thursday.
the last supper: jesus shares a final meal with his disciples
the one holy week exception is good friday, the day jesus was crucified and died. it is the subject of this video from the richyrocks youtube channel where jesus talks with one of his disciples (followers) about what happened on that fateful (big impact) weekend. but for christians it is a good friday because they believe that jesus’ extreme death followed by his resurrection on easter sunday took away their sins.
the day after saturday is known as holy saturday, NOT saturday of glory a direct translation of sábado de gloria as it is known in spanish.

is good friday a good name for the day jesus was crucified? is saturday of glory, or maybe glorious saturday a better name than holy saturday? post any comments, questions, feelings or inspirations under leave a reply
