Jesus and the Holocaust supplementary material for Session 7
the earthquake

Matthew Chapter 27: 51-54
Contemporary English Version Copyright 1999 American Bible Society



At once the curtain in the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, and rocks split apart.  Graves opened, and many of God's people were raised to life.   They left their graves, and after Jesus had risen to life, they went into the holy city, where they were seen by many people. 
The officer and the soldiers guarding Jesus felt the earthquake and saw everything else that happened. They were frightened and said, "This man really was God's Son!"
