"The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Hosanna in the highest heaven!" Matthew 21:19
Save now. The word is taken from Ps. 118:25, one of the Psalms of the Hallel. The chanting of this psalm was connected at the Feast of Tabernacles with the waving of palm branches; hence the use of the word by the multitudes at our Lord’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Matt. 21:9, 15; Mark 11:9–10; John 12:13).
"Let everyone who breathes praise the LORD. Hallelujah!" Psalm 150:6
a Greek word for love used often in the New Testament (John 13:35) Contrary to popular understanding, the significance of agape is not that it is an unconditional love, but that it is a primarily a love of the will rather than the emotions.
'By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:35
"Why is Good Friday referred to as “good”? What the Jewish authorities and Romans did to Jesus was definitely not good (see Matthew chapters 26-27). However, the results of Christ’s death are very good!Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”First Peter 3:18tells us, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.”
Many Christian churches celebrate Good Friday with a subdued service, usually in the evening, in which Christ’s death is remembered with solemn hymns, prayers of thanksgiving, a message centered on Christ suffering for our sakes, and observance of the Lord's Supper. Whether or not Christians choose to “celebrate” Good Friday, the events of that day should be ever on our minds because the death of Christ on the cross is the paramount event of the Christian faith."
