What’s Good about Friday?

If you truly understand what happened on the original Friday of Jesus’ crucifixion, you know the man was beaten beyond recognition, made to walk in public shame and mockery beneath a crossbeam, and nailed like a dying insect to a Roman T-shaped torture device called a cross, which we today commemorate with tattoos and bling. What exactly is good about this? What’s so good about Friday? What’s so good about a man howling into the darkness, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani? My God, My God, Why have you deserted me?” What’s so good about a naked, broken carcass of a human giving up his last breath while the bad guys openly mock him?
