Good Friday is one of the most solemn days on the Christian calendar. It is the day that Jesus of Nazareth was crucified for the sins of the world. Just how the term “good” came to be associated with Good Friday is not clear. Some think it is a corruption of “God Friday” while still others believe it means pious, devout, or holy.
However, I have often heard Good Friday referred to as “Good” in relationship to what Jesus did. By giving His life he transformed a day that was meant to be evil into something altogether good.
