When Jesus was killed on the cross the sky went dark, there was an earthquake, people came to life who were dead and the curtain in the temple was torn in two! Jesus died as a sacrifice for us so that all our sins might be forgiven. In the past the temple curtain had separated people from God’s holy place, now Jesus had made a way for everybody to draw close to God.
