Should point out that that's not actually true; the possessive was never marked by a double vowel, and the word 'good' in 'Good Friday' is not the same as the one in 'goodbye' (where, as Isaac has correctly pointed out, it is a corruption of 'God'). Rather, it's our normal word 'good' - albeit in an older sense, meaning 'holy'.

I love the video and I understand the point and agree with it completely. Historically, the word "Good" is a hang over from Old and Middle English. In those days, the possessive was indicated by a double vowel rather then an apostrophe "s". So the word "Good" properly translated would be "God's" or "God's Friday." For example, "Good Bye" is actually a blessing one would give to another when meeting or departing. "Good Bye" may be written "God's be ye" or in modern idiom, "You belong to God" and therefore a blessing of safety to the traveler. Regardless, today is God's Friday...and, using our modern colloquial definition, it is also a good Friday as God in Christ conquers sin and death. With that, I offer an ancient blessing as one traveler to another...Good Bye.

The good that God intended could only be proven on the cross.

We watched the Passion last night with my children, and this is a great capstone to what we were seeing unfold in that movie. Gods love is unfathomable!
