Approach: Encourage the student ask questions when he doesn't understand what is going on about the details of Jesus' death.

Hermeneutic objective: Practice good observation skills.

Theological objective: Jesus died a horrible death while paying the price of our sins so that we may have a relationship with God. While the curtain separated sin from God, tearing it from top to bottom represented that, through His Son Jesus Christ, human beings were no longer considered sinful and could come into the presence of God.
