What's the Good News of Good Friday?

IT IS SAID, BEFORE WE CAN EMBRACE THE GOOD NEWS OF CHRIST'S SACRIFICE ON THE CROSS AND RESURRECTION, we must first embrace the bad news which is we're all sinners who cannot save ourselves and we desperately need a Savior. Joyous repentance follows, then embracing Jesus's free gift of pardon and salvation in Him unto eternal life.

The Cross of Christ is God the Father's unimaginable grace to us. And it is all His doing.  So vast and wide and deep that we can only dimly fathom it.

Jesus Christ took the sin of the world and became the sin of the world, though he knew no sin, for us. He drinks the cup and breaks the curse of sin and death when on the third day, he  supernaturally rises from the depths of hell.
