At his blog today, John Dekker answers a question that perplexed me when I was younger:
Why is it called “Good” Friday, my religious education students asked me. If it’s when Jesus died, it should be called “Bad” Friday…
It’s a good question, but the answer is much better!

When my nephew was little he asked his mom;
“Why do they call it Good Friday? They should call it dead Jesus day!” Where would we be without this sacrifice and triumph on our behalf?
Have a wonderful Easter weekend.
