Many Christians around the world observe Good Friday on the Friday before Easter Sunday. It commemorates Jesus Christ’s

It includes, among other events, the last supper, Jesus’ agony in the garden, his arrest by the Sanhedrin priests, and
his trial before Pontius Pilate. Those parts of the four Gospels that describe these events are known as the “Passion

The sacrifice of animals as a covering for sin continued throughout Israel’s history until the temple was destroyed in A.D. 70. However, the sacrifice of
Jesus Christ on the cross was the last offering of the “Lamb of God,
who takes away the sin of the world!”(John 1:29). The death of Jesus was significant because His death did not just cover sin, it redeemed sin. Those who trust in the LORD Jesus Christ as their saviour are redeemed or bought out of sin. This is because Jesus paid the full price for sin and offered God’s grace to whoever believes.
The death of Jesus was significant because only, that death was complete and final. One for all sacrifice for the sins of the world. “And by that will,
we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (Hebrews 10:10).
