Good Friday’s history
The belief behind Good Friday is that Jesus Christ preached unity, nonviolence, and humanity to the people around two thousand years ago in the Galilee province of Jerusalem. People began to regard him as God at that time. Some people, however, were envious of Jesus Christ. Such individuals were devoted to the spread of religious superstition.
They complained to Pilate, the Roman ruler who claimed to be the son of God, about Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was accused of treason and contempt of religion. Jesus Christ was given the death sentence. He was beaten with a whip and crowned with thorns. Following that, he was nailed to the cross and hanged. The round ballad, according to the Bible, is the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified.
