Temple Veil



In this model, we see a priest offering at the Altar of Incense in Herod’s Temple. It was placed close to the Veil that separated between the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. According to Mishnah Shekalim 8.5, the Veil was one handbreadth thick. This heavy veil was torn from top to bottom when Christ died on Golgotha (Matthew 27.51; Mark 15.38; Luke 23.45). The spiritual application of this event is explained in the Epistle to the Hebrews 6.19; 9.3; 10.20).
