Good Friday

"He (Pilot) ordered Jesus flogged with a lead-tipped whip, then turned him over to the Roman soldiers to crucify him"

"This is how much God loved the world: He gave us His Son, His one and only Son.
And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; but believing in Him, anyone a full and lasting life.
God did not go to all the trouble of sending His Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts Him is aquitted; anyone who refuses Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to Him."
John 3:16-18~The Message
