Q: Is it a sin to get discouraged when things don't go the way we want them to? A: We all get discouraged from time to time, especially when we can't do something we want to do, or we find our way blocked and life becomes difficult.
Q: I've always been puzzled by a prayer of Jesus just before His arrest. A: You're referring to Jesus' prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane, a secluded area just outside the city of Jerusalem.
Q: In your opinion, which was more important, Jesus' death on the cross or His resurrection from the dead? A: Both Jesus' death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead are equally important; they cannot be separated from each other.
Q: Why were Jesus' disciples so depressed after He was put to death? A: Yes, Jesus repeatedly told His disciples that He would be put to death, but then would be raised from the dead.
Q: Was Jesus really dead when they took Him down from the cross? A: Beyond doubt, Jesus was dead when His body was taken down from the cross; the Roman soldiers who'd nailed Him to the cross made certain of it.
Q: Why is the day on which Jesus died called "Good Friday"? A: From one perspective, you're right; there certainly doesn't seem to be anything good about that last Friday, when Jesus was condemned to die on a cruel Roman cross.
