Scriptural Meditation- Mark 15:38

And the parokhet in the Temple was torn in two from top to bottom.


I don’t know how many of my fellow gentile believers recognize this, but the Temple, like the Tabernacle before it is a dwelling place for The LORD. There are so many instances of people in the Bible tearing their garments in grief or anguish. The wicked High Priest does it when he accuses Messiah of blaspheming. The Temple veil, which would have also been present in the Tabernacle, tearing feels like an expression of Divine grief and aguish.
