And the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom. (ASV)
When Did The Curtain Rip?
Bart Ehrman points out in Jesus, Interrupted that the curtain rips at different times in different Gospels:
- 37 And Jesus uttered a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
- 38 And the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom.
- 45 the sun`s light failing: and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
- 46 And Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said this, he gave up the ghost.
