Matthew 27:55-61. Mark 15.
Overview: Jesus was taken into Roman courts, before Pontius Pilate and Herod Antipas, who sent him back
to the Jewish court. Roman soldiers took him to Golgotha, the place of the skull, where he was crucified.
Friday of Holy Week has been traditionally been called Good Friday or Holy Friday. On this day, the church
commemorates Jesus’ arrest (since by Jewish customs of counting days from sundown to sundown it was already
Friday), his trial, crucifixion and suffering, death, and burial.
