the veil was torn by jesus god temple

The Veil Was Torn Meaning

Access. The reason the veil was torn is so that we could have access. The veil was a large curtain in the temple that kept us from being able to enter into the presence of God. Sin had separated us, and only a blood sacrifice by the right person could fix it. Until Jesus, the priest would enter through the veil to submit the sacrifice to God for the sin of the nation. Jesus eliminated the need for the curtain because we can all now enter into the presence of God through Him, Jesus.
