Easter Object Lesson – The Curtain Was Torn


OBJECT: small piece of cloth ripped slightly so it can be ripped in two easily

In Bible days, Jerusalem had a temple with a great curtain. This curtain hid the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark was a gold box that showed God is with us always. But the curtain kept people away from God. That’s because sin keeps us from being close to God. But Jesus died for our sins. He wants us to be close to God. When He died on the cross, the curtain hiding the Ark of the Covenant was ripped in two like this piece of cloth. (rip the piece of cloth) That’s because Jesus took the punishment for our sins. Now we don’t have anything separating us from God. God wants us to be close to Him. All we have to do now is accept Jesus as our Savior from sin.
