The Curtain Torn in Two

Luke 23:45  (ID: 3154)

When Jesus died on the cross, the curtain that separated the Most Holy Place in the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. In this Good Friday message, Alistair Begg reminds us that this event dramatically illustrated the truth that unfolded at the same time. Jesus' once-for-all sacrifice accomplished what the Old Testament priesthood could never achieve. He has delivered His people from bondage to sin and declared the path to God open so that sinful men and women can approach God by faith with confidence that our sins are forgiven.


45while the sun's light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.
