45 for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.
45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
45 while the sun's light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.
45 a total blackout. The Temple curtain split right down the middle.
45 Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two.
45 The light from the sun was gone. And suddenly, the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn down the middle.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Luke 23:45
Commentary on Luke 23:44-49
(Read Luke 23:44-49)
We have here the death of Christ magnified by the wonders that attended it, and his death explained by the words with which he breathed out his soul. He was willing to offer himself. Let us seek to glorify God by true repentance and conversion; by protesting against those who crucify the Saviour; by a sober, righteous, and godly life; and by employing our talents in the service of Him who died for us and rose again.
