Sharing the Daily Word
50 Then Jesus shouted out again, and he released his spirit. 51 At that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart, 52 and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead. 53 They left the cemetery after Jesus’ resurrection, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people. Matthew 27:50-53
Can you imagine what the days surrounding the crucifixion were like? I wonder if the people were overwhelmed with what had happened. The verse above is amazing to me where it mentions that godly men and women who had died were not only raised from the dead, but they went to the city and appeared to people. What an amazing God He is!
