Sixth Sunday of Lent (when Passion Sunday) (A22)

Matthew 27.11-66

Jesus Dies

[...] Then Jesus cried again with a loud voice and breathed his last. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, and the rocks were split. The tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. After his resurrection they came out of the tombs and entered the holy city and appeared to many. Now when the centurion and those with him, who were keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were terrified and said, "Truly this man was God's Son!" Many women were also there, looking on from a distance; they had followed Jesus from Galilee and had provided for him. Among them were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee. [...]

A Case of Mistaken Identity

Cartoon Cool Stuff

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.
