“Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom…”
CUFI’s Alastair Kirk reads Matthew 27:27-54 to reflect on what took place at Calvary.
“It’s good to be reminded today on Good Friday of the importance of the Cross and what it means to those who have made Jesus their King. Calvary speaks of God’s grace and mercy towards sinners all through Jesus’s sacrifice on the Cross. The extraordinary splitting of the temple’s veil – notice from top to bottom, not bottom to top – it was an act of God Almighty. It represents the partition or separation between a sinful people and a Holy God that has been torn down because of what happened on that world-changing day – and personally speaking, life-changing day – around 2,000 years ago.
Why Israel answers the critical questions and presents the essential reasons why Israel matters to God, to Christians and to the world.
