Matthew 27:45-66 records the last moments of Jesus on the cross prior to His death, His death, His burial, and the efforts made to secure that He stays in the tomb. One of the interesting events surrounding the death of Jesus is found in verse 51, "Suddenly, the curtain of the sanctuary was split in two from top to bottom . . ."
Notice that the curtain split from top to bottom; which indicates a divine action. Jesus removed the barrier (the curtain that kept men from entering into the Holy of Holies). Now every person who comes to God through faith in Jesus Christ as access to God the Father. We can enter into His very presence because of Jesus' work on the cross. Jesus' death = my access.
