Following his arrest, Jesus was brought to the house of Annas, the father-in-law of the high priest, Caiaphas. There he was interrogated with little result and sent bound to Caiaphas the high priest where the Sanhedrin had assembled (John 18:1-24).Conflicting testimony against Jesus was brought forth by many witnesses, to which Jesus answered nothing.

In Islam , as per Allah's word in Quran , Jesus pbuh was neither killed or Crucified but Allah saved him from the plans of sinners , any soul that wants salvation , then we should directly ask Allah for forgiveness of sins
no other person is responsible for our sins as is the logical thinking of Justice

History of Good Friday
As early as the first century, the Church set aside every Friday as a special day of prayer and fasting. It was not until the fourth century, however, that the Church began observing the Friday before Easter as the day associated with the crucifixion of Christ. First called Holy or Great Friday by the Greek Church, the name "Good Friday" was adopted by the Roman Church around the sixth or seventh century. This collection of Good Friday videos reflect the types of traditions associated with the history of Good Friday.
