Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him. At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice,
"Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).
And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.
Mark 15:32-34, 37-38
The sin of the world lay heavy on the sacrificial Lamb. The Pure One is stained with the filth of the ages that have been and that will be. The Son is violently cast out from communion with his Father. The curtain to the holy of holies is ripped apart. And since the creation of the world, we are washed clean and can enter into the presence of the Most High God once again.
