The Bible tells us that when Jesus died on the cross, the veil in the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. What is the significance of this? During the lifetime of Jesus, the temple was the place where the Jewish religion required the people to make animal sacrifices for the forgiveness of their sins. Hebrews 9:1-9 tells us that in the temple a veil separated the Holy of Holies, the place where God dwelt, from the rest of the temple. Only the high priest was allowed to enter beyond the veil, and only once a year (Exodus 30:10), to make atonement for the sins of Israel (Leviticus 16). When Jesus died on the cross and the veil was rent from top to bottom, access to God was now available to the common man. Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice that fulfilled the required sacrifices once and for all. The fact that the veil was ripped from top to bottom signifies that God did it, nothing any mere human could do. The work was done solely and completely by Jesus Christ. Jesus is enough in this life and in the life to come. He is enough for our justification, but also for our sanctification (the Christian life). Those who trust in His completed work, enjoy the forgiveness of sin,unrestraint access to God, and the freedom that can only be found in Him.

Torn Veil Publications seeks to celebrate this truth and to spread this message to others through the written and spoken word. What follows are the writings of Pastor Patrick Griffiths, unless otherwise indicated.
