PTC News Desk: Good Friday is a religious holiday observed by Christians
around the world. It marks the day that Jesus Christ was crucified, and it is
the day before Easter Sunday. It is a somber day of reflection and prayer, a
time to remember the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made on the cross.

Iscariot, arrested, and sentenced to death. He was then crucified on a cross,
died, and was buried. Three days later, Jesus rose from the dead and ascended
into Heaven. Thus, Easter Sunday celebrates Jesus’ victory over death.
