At noon the whole country was covered in darkness,
which lasted for three hours. At about three o'clock
Jesus cried out with a loud shout, "My God, My God,
why did you abandon me?"
Jesus again gave a loud cry and breathed his last.
Then the curtain hanging in the Temple was torn
in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks
split apart, the graves broke open, and many of
God's people who had died were raised to life. They
left the graves, and after Jesus rose from death, they went
into the Holy City, where many people saw them.
When the army officer and the soldiers with him
who were watching Jesus saw the earthquake and
everything else that happened, they were terrified
and said, "He really was the Son of God!"
Matt 27:45-46 & 50-54
