Though there is no mention of Good Friday in the Bible, the holy book of Christians, the term has been widely used in some other religious books. In those texts, the day is mentioned when Jesus Christ was crucified after Judas Iscariot, one of the disciples of Jesus Christ betrayed him.
Judas went straight to the authorities who were looking forward to arresting Jesus Christ. Judas took 30 silver coins to tip the soldiers about Jesus Christ. He knew that the Lord will be taking his disciples to a garden situated near Jerusalem. Judas went and kissed lightly to Jesus Christ and referred to him as 'Rabbi'. This is because he had told the soldiers that the person he would be kissing and calling Rabbi is Jesus Christ.
Eventually, Jesus Christ was arrested and he was taken to the place where he was crucified brutally. The day when Lord was crucified is believed to be Friday. However, the Lord resurrected two days later i.e., on Sunday.
