"Take him yourselves and crucify him, for I find no crime in him." ~ Governor Pilate of Judea/John 19:6Today is Good Friday. I'm not sure who coined the name, but I wonder what's so good about today. Truth of the matter is, this was the most horrifying and worst day ever. It was absolutely terrible! The swift and unlawful trial and execution of the Son of God. I think it should be renamed Tragic Friday instead. Actually, no words can even describe the day accurately; it was hell itself. "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" I don't think Jesus was joking when He said that. He really felt abandoned. It's the most terrible feeling in the world. And then He would die a few moments later. What about Jesus' friends and family and disciples? The hope they have been waiting for is dead! I can't even begin to imagine what they were thinking at that time. They probably couldn't even be thinking anything. They must have been sick with shock and sadness. An optimistic story gone horribly wrong...
