17. OLD COVENANT: During this 3 hour period, God appeared in “Shekinah Glory” between the Cherubim, over the Mercy Seat
This was at the very heart of the Old Covenant Temple sacrifice.
17. NEW COVENANT: During this 3 hour period, Jesus Christ was rejected by God the Father, and atoned for the sins of the world
The Crucifixion is at the very heart of Christianity, for eternity.
During the Crucifixion, Jesus cried out just before He died. It is recorded in Mark 15:34 “And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi , Eloi , lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
However, three days later God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Please see our teaching on the Resurrection on this web site.
