(My apologies for asking too many questions; the Mods may delete some of my posted questions after being answered.) Was it torn in two “before” or “after” Jesus died on the cross? Luke 23:44-46 44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. 46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. Matthew 27:50-51 50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; Very clearly the words "before or after" are not apearing, but reading the verses per se the event seems "before" Jesus died in Luke while "after" in Matthew. Thanks!
