TOMBS WERE OPENED (The Fourth Cup & Lamb of God)
Now when Jesus died, tombs were opened. In Matthew it’s recorded, “And behold, the veil of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom.” Now if we were going to tear a 30 foot veil into two pieces, two men would grab it and would tear it from the bottom up. But this veil was torn from the top to the bottom. By God? By an Angel? It doesn’t say, but it was not torn by men. This veil separated the holy from the holy of holies which is where the Ark of the Covenant was kept. “The earth quaked,” at His death, and “rocks were split, tombs were opened, and the bodies of many saints who had fallen asleep were raised. And coming forth from their tombs after his resurrection, they entered the holy city and appeared to many.” People don’t realize this, but when Jesus died, amazing things happened. Then they took Him down from the cross and they buried Him. When Jesus died, we also know there was an eclipse from 12 o'clock to 3 o’clock. We read that in another gospel. Jesus dies on the cross, they take Him down, and they bury Him. Three days later He is resurrected. He conquers death, and they don’t know where He is. They’re confused.
