 The Jewish system, too, yielded its solemn witness in the rent veil — the shadows were passing away: the fulfilment of them, the great Reality, had come. Unrent, it had been the symbol that man could not draw near to God. Under the law it could never be. God dwelt then in the thick darkness. But in the death of Jesus fulness of grace has come. God and man may now meet face to face. The blood is sprinkled upon and before the mercy-seat, and man is invited to draw near with holy boldness. (Remarks on Matthew 27 by W. Kelly)
 Our Lord died a willing victim. Man might will His death, and be the instrument of it. A man He became, that as a man He might die: but in every circumstance it is so marked as to show that He was there who could as easily have swept away a world as of old He laid the foundations of heaven and earth by His word. (Remarks on Matthew 27 by W. Kelly)
 whilst acting in power, He did not act in judgment against.' man, because He had acted in judgment against His own well-beloved Son. (Remarks on Matthew 27 by W. Kelly)
