The crucifixion of Jesus Christ (according to the Bible) happened today around two thousand years ago. Good Friday is a day of mourning in church for Christians.
Jesus was crucified by the Romans, because he was getting to be known by the people as the king of the Jews. The Romans disliked this.
Jesus’ last words are said to be
Father, into your hands I commend my spirit
After his death Jesus’ body was said to have been taken to a cave, where a large stone was rolled over the entrance.
The cross is now a major symbol for Christianity, as the death of Christ on the cross, lead to the beginnings of Christianity.
