“The Darkness and Tearing of the Veil”

And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.

Title: Darkness and Tearing of the Veil

  1. Study Luke 23:44-45, Matthew 27:45, Mark 15:33. How do these reports differ?  How are they the same?
  2. Amos 8:9 makes a prediction about darkness, do you think it applies to Calvary? Why or why not?
  3. What is the biblical contrast between light and darkness? How does John use this contrast in John 1:4-11, 8:12; 12:35, 46?
  4. How does Paul fight for faith in his darkness? 2 Corinthians 4:7-11
  5. When did the temple veil tear in two? What does this symbolize according to Hebrew 10:19-25?
