Matthew 27:51-56

51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[e] went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”

55 Many women were there, watching from a distance. They had followed Jesus from Galilee to care for his needs. 56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph,[f] and the mother of Zebedee’s sons.

One response to “Matthew 27:51-56

  1. I don’t know that I have ever read this account and realized what it said. Not only was the curtain rent, and the rocks broke apart, but this is talking about the crypts in the temple (like we see in Indiana Jones movies). The buried saints were raised again and went about among the people. WOW. If that wasn’t a sign that the world was shifting, I don’t know what would be.

    His deity as the Son of God was fully revealed and people knew that they had killed the Messiah. Likewise, people should look at my actions and words and know that I am a Son of God and they should be able to say “Surely, he is a follower”.
