Why is Good Friday called Good?

Good Friday is a day when Christians remember Jesusí death. The Bible says that Jesus died to save Christians from Godís anger:

Everyone will die one day, and then afterwards stand before God. He will be their judge. So Jesus died once as the sacrifice. By doing that, he took away all the sins of many people. He will come a second time. He will not have to die again for our sins. He comes the second time to rescue all who are waiting for him and make them whole. (Hebrews 9:27-28)

Christ suffered and died once. It was for all time. He was not guilty of sins. However, he died for everyone who is guilty of sin. Christ did this to bring you back to God. People killed his body, but the Holy Spirit made him alive again. (1 Peter 3:18)
