Whenever I read those verses, it gives me a sense of awe. The tearing of that curtain in the temple at the moment of Jesus' death symbolizes what Jesus accomplished by sacrificing himself on the cross. He made forgiveness of sins possible, and made it possible for us to come into God's presence in prayer and worship.
I wrote my book called The Temple Curtain in order to help boys and girls feel that same awe at what God did for us in Christ. I hope it will do just that.
