I saw this on your site...

"When Jesus was crucified, the veil which hid the Ark of the Covenant was instantaneously torn from top to bottom, signifying the work of the priests was at an end and men had direct access to God. (See Matthew 27: 51; Mark 15:38; Luke 23:45) Unbelievably, the Old Testament priests sewed the veil back together and continued with their sacrifices!"

>Do you know where I can find some more material that would confirm that the veil was indeed sewed back up?



No, I can't. I'm not sure that it exists. Here is how I got there:

1. We know from the Old Testament what proper temple worship consisted of. 2. We know from the New Testament that the veil was torn: Mt 27:51 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;

Mr 15:38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.

Lu 23:45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

3. We know from the NT that temple ceremonies continued after Christ's death.

4. We know from history that the temple was in use until 70 a.d.

So we extrapolate that the Jews were _bound_ to cover the Most Holy Place with a veil of very specific construction. We know that if the veil was rent at the crucifixion, the Jews could not continue temple rites without repairing it. They did continue temple rites. Ergo: they repaired it.

Whether or not someone has put that thinking in writing somewhere else, I don't know. But I imagine so. I have no idea if any historical documents exist that speak to it.

Hope that helps.

If you send me your snail address, I will send you an information pack, a couple of tracts, and a couple of pamphlets.
