Good Friday

Mark 15.33-39

From noon until three o'clock it was dark over all the land. At three o'clock Jesus cried with a loud voice, "My God, My God, why have You left Me alone?"

When some of those who stood by heard that, they said, "Listen! He is calling for Elijah."One of them ran and took a sponge and filled it with sour wine. He put it on a stick and gave it to Him to drink. He said, "Let Him alone. Let us see if Elijah will come and take Him down."

Then Jesus gave a loud cry. He gave up His spirit and died. The curtain in the house of God was torn in two from top to bottom. The captain of the soldiers was looking at Jesus when He cried out. He saw Him die and said, "Surely, this Man was the Son of God."

Was.

Still is.

And three days later everybody found out, it's hard to keep a good man down."

Great post Alastair and a good reminder to people of what Easter is really about. Like Christmas it has become so commercialised nowadays.
