What's So Good About Good Friday?

CrucifixionHave you ever considered why we don't say, "Happy Good Friday" when we greet one another on this day? So what is so good about "Good Friday"?

Jesus was betrayed by one of his own disciples; he was arrested, mocked, almost beaten to death, and then crucified on a cross on a Friday during Passover. So why on earth do we call that terrible day in history "Good Friday"?

It has been said that the Jews put Jesus to death. This statement is often misunderstood and can be an unwitting reason for prejudice against the Jewish people.
