A Case of Mistaken Identity
There isn't much to cartoon in a tragic story such as this. Yet, there is good news. The curtain that rips was to the inner most area of the temple called the holy of holies. God's spirit was thought to be present on earth, hidden behind this curtain. It's ripping is the good news (or Gospel) that Jesus was bringing to us all along: God's spirit is with us, everywhere, all the time and not hidden. Through Jesus' life and teaching, God's spirit is revealed to us.
