Check this out.

"Then Jesus shouted out again, and he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain in the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart, and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead
after Jesus' resurrection. They left the cemetery, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people."
Matthew 27:50-53
Is that not incredible? People who were dead just got up and left their graves and were seen?!?!? What was that conversation like? The curtain inside the temple was torn in two and then people in the cemetery just got up and walked out of their graves at the time of Jesus' death. What a powerful moment! That is exactly what I did November 1, 1996 when I gave my life the Christ~ I walked out of my grave into new life. Death overcome. Satan defeated. The veil (or the curtain in the temple) between us and God was torn in two immediately by the power of Jesus' death. Now, we no longer needed to sacrifice lambs or a High Priest in the temple- because the spotless Lamb had just lived a perfect life and died in our places so that we may enter the presence of God.
How could anybody explain these unbelievable events?
Who was that man on the cross?
and WHAT just happened?
Could He really be who He claimed to be?
