We have updated and added the latest 47 Good Friday coloring pages. These pages are perfect for Sunday school group activities, individual coloring at home, or just for fun.

Good Friday is an extremely important day in Christianity. This year, it falls on March 29 to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus on the cross. Even though it commemorates the death of Jesus, it is still called “good” because, according to Christianity, His sacrifice saved humanity. Today, Christians worldwide attend church services, fast, and reflect on Jesus’ sacrifice.

Our Good Friday coloring sheets come in various designs and settings to suit all ages and interests. These pages illustrate Jesus on the cross, often with two thieves on either side and views below. Some pages depict scenes of Mary holding Jesus’ body after his crucifixion.

You will also find some photos of Jus’ journey to the cross. Our pages also range from simple, cartoon-style designs for younger children to more complex graphic designs for older children and adults.

Although Good Friday commemorates the death of Jesus, you can use bright colors to remember His sacrifice and the promise of Easter. Parents and teachers can use these coloring pages to discuss Jesus’ sacrifice and the importance of redemption and forgiveness. As coloring, children can reflect on the importance of Good Friday and connect with the traditions associated with that day.
