Galatians 1:6-8; “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”

Today we’re taking a quick look at historical facts regarding the Bible and the Book of Mormon. From the General Authorities in Salt Lake City, to the missionaries knocking on our doors, we hear the same story all the time.

There are many remarkable items to look at and study when it comes to the temple veil being ripped in two so let’s get right into it! The first thing you’ll want to take note of is how many times this event was prophesied about in the OT. We’ve listed three of those above. They serve as proof of yet more miracles God has done for us. PTL!
One of the coolest items on this topic is found in the gospel of John. In John 19:30, we read Jesus’ declaration, “…It is finished!”
The significance of Jesus’ words mustn’t be glossed over. Someone who is crucified dies of asphyxiation which means they’ve run out of air. Not Jesus. Jesus gave up His life, willingly, which means it wasn’t taken from Him. Another sign He was in control of His own life is found in the fact He was actually talking at the end of His life. Amazingly, His voice could be heard over the trumpets blaring at the same time.
Jesus made the comment ‘it was finished’, signifies two things. Firstly is the fact He said, ‘it is finished’, not ‘I am finished’. Secondly, the term ‘it is finished’ means the debt for sin was wiped out. The Greek word for finished is tetelestai, meaning the debt is taken care of. He became our sin.
