Matthew 27:51-52 – At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. (NIV)
This was no simple matter. This was not just a tremor that move you to think the underground mine is busy with blasting some rock. Not only was there some damage in the region but even the tombs broke open to allow the dead were awake and came out to see what is happening.
- Matthew 27:50 - 65
