Reading Time: 4 minutes What is striking about Matthew’s account of crucifixion is the number of supernatural events that accompany the final three hours and the death of Jesus (Matt. 27:45-54). The sky turned dark at midday. The curtain in the temple was ripped in two. There was an earthquake. Tombs were opened and some of the dead came to life. This is what happened when the Sinless One was made sin; when the Lord of Glory was crucified; when the Author of Life died. The created order was testifying that something of unparalleled magnitude was taking place to the Creator himself. Let’s reflect on the first of these events.
