The Veil Is Torn Asunder

Apr 7, 2023

In His last hours Jesus uttered seven statements that have become known as the Seven Last Words Of Christ:

  1. Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
  2. Verily I say unto thee, today thou shalt be with me in paradise.
  3. Woman, behold thy son.
  4. My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?
  5. I thirst.
  6. It is finished.
  7. Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.

And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed out His life. And the curtain of the Holy of Holies of the Temple was torn in two from top to bottom. And when the centurion who stood facing Him saw Him expire this way, he said, truly this man was God’s Son! Mark 15:37-39

And then He was laid in The Tomb.

There was a good and righteous man named Joseph, a member of the Sanhedrin, who had not agreed with their plan and action. He was from Arimathea, a Judean town, and was looking forward to the kingdom of God. He approached Pilate and asked for Jesus’s body. Taking it down, he wrapped it in fine linen and placed it in a tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever been placed. It was the preparation day, and the Sabbath was about to begin. The women who had come with Him from Galilee followed along and observed the tomb and how His body was placed. Then they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. And they rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment. Luke 23:50-56 CSB

Wait for it. All your cries have been heard and the ransom paid in full.
