Last part: The end of Jesusí life

Mark chapter 15

Jesusí death and the events after it

Verses 37-39

Jesusí death happened in a loud and powerful way. Jesus did not die as other men died. It was this that surprised the captain of the soldiers. He called Jesus: Ďthe son of Godí.

Immediately, powerful things happened in Jerusalem. The most important event happened at *Godís Great House. A strong curtain was in front of the most important room there. That room was special for God. The *priests did not go into it. Only the most important *priest went there, once each year. But that curtain tore completely. God had done it. He did not want his special place to remain separate from his people. He wanted to be with them. He wanted to live in their lives (1 Corinthians 3:16). And this had become possible because of Jesusí death.
