Top  Previous  Next

Dec 8 14.6 The temple curtain was torn in two, the earth shook, rocks fractured, tombs opened and many dead believers1 were raised. Coming out of the tombs after Jesus resurrection, they entered the holy city and appeared to many.

The captain2 and his guard over Jesus, terrified by the earthquake and other happenings, said, “Truly, this was the Son of God.” The crowd that witnessed these events returned home beating their chests.

Many women3 watching from afar had followed Jesus from Galilee ministering to him, including Mary Magdalene, Mary, mother of James and Joseph, and Salome, the mother of Zebedees sons.
