today's readings: Judges 8:18-9:21, Luke 23:44-24:12, Psalm 99:1-9, Proverbs 14:9-10
in today's reading, the curtain is torn down the middle. the theological implication here, of course, is that the death of Jesus brought us into the Holy of Holies...it brought us into the presence of God.
but the practical issues here i'd never thought of until tonight. how did the religious leaders of the time explain that the temple curtain was torn down the middle? did they sew it up? seems like that would be hard to explain away...
thank you, God, for what Jesus did in reconciling us to Yourself.
