It’s over. Finished. Evil and death have had their way and even though we view events with the benefit of hindsight, we cannot help but feel the sense of abandonment and desolation of Jesus’ family, friends and followers.
It must have felt like this was the final word- a statement that goodness and love could not win. For them, unlike for us, all hope seemed lost, resurrection and new life could not be contemplated.
Yet come it did and in spectacular fashion. Today is truly Good Friday because Jesus showed us a way through life and death to life beyond death!
Thanks be to God for his wonderful gift in Jesus.
