Depicting Jesus Christ in Easter passion plays can be highly challenging as sales manager Adrian Loh knows only too well. This day is celebrated as Easter, the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Church bells toll 33 times: There are many various traditions and rituals that surround Good Friday from all over the world. While Good Friday means "business as usual" for chain restaurants like the Olive Garden and Chili's, it's a good idea to check ahead before taking your family to your local mom+pop eatery.

- Another theory is that the Good in Good Friday derives from God or "God's Friday" or corrupt form of "God's Friday". Sin is a subject we don't like to talk about, yet it has affected all people in a frightful way. "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). Death is a result of sin, brought into the world when Adam and Eve fell into sin.

Our sins and past are nailed to the cross, and now we go beyond the cross into a resurrected victorious life filled with hope that has an eternal promise in Christ.

All along the way, God required believers to recognize their sinful nature, confess their sins, ask for forgiveness for their sins, and offer specific animals to the priests as sacrifices for their sins. Some people would live for as long as 48 hours on the cross in excruciating agony. But over the next 40 days, these women and the Twelve Apostles and many others do see him, that is, they experience him in a different way. Jesus experienced the pain and suffering we deserve because of our sins.

"It is the day the son of God went to the cross willingly to die a torturous death so that we can be forgiven and become a citizen of Heaven".

Although the term "Good Friday" is not mentioned in the Bible, we can study the events that took place on the day Jesus was crucified. Considered as one of the oldest Christian holidays, the custom of observing Good Friday is believed to have started since 100 CE.

Good Friday also marks the most important day of the season of Lent, when the faithful lead a frugal life shunning all luxury and physical comforts to gain spiritual strength. For very early in the morning, on that first Easter Sunday, the first day of the week, when the Sabbath had passed, and while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the hastily improvised tomb of the Master, only to find the stone rolled away and the tomb empty. A "cross walk" through Pleasanton from St. Augustine to St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church.
