At ninth hour (or 3pm) "He gave up the ghost,...
.... behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; " Matthew 27:51
Temple curtain - entrance into Holy of Holies, no longer separated, but way is opened through Christ's sacrifice.
This curtain was a foot or 30cm thick, torn from top to bottom.
Matthew 27:  And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
(*note: came out of graves after resurrection of Jesus, however the graves were opened in the earthquake at Jesus' death. (Matthew 27:50 - 54)
**Large Stone Rolled Away + the grave cloths empty!
The linen wrappings and face-cloth from Jesus’ body were lying there by themselves.
(Luke 24:1–12; John 20:1–9)
** Resurrection and Resurrected Saints
the Resurrection of the LORD Jesus was the cause of resurrection of saints.
What a monumental Miracle!.
It showed the power over sin and death was defeated by the death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus - He was indeed the Son of God and He defeated Satan's power.
He IS the Resurrection and the LIFE!
The miracles connected with the cross provide evidence that the One crucified was God's dear Son. They give indisputable proof.
Whoever believes ... the New Testament writings, has to be convinced by
The cross . . .
May the LORD richly bless you all this Resurrection day!
.. as we remember our LORD Jesus' great gift and sacrifice for us all... how He loves us!
