In one of the accounts of Jesus’s death we read that the curtain in the temple of God-the one that kept people out of the holiest place of God’s presence-ripped.One New Testament writer said that this ripping was a picture of how, because of Jesus, we can have new, direct access to God.A beautiful idea.But the curtain ripping also means that God comes out, that God is no longer confined to the temple as God was previously.
