27:51 Just then 1  the temple curtain 2  was torn in two, from top to bottom. The 3  earth shook and the rocks were split apart. 27:52 And tombs were opened, and the bodies of many saints who had died 4  were raised. 27:53 (They 5  came out of the tombs after his resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.) 27:54 Now when the centurion 6  and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and what took place, they were extremely terrified and said, “Truly this one was God’s Son! 27:55 Many 7  women who had followed Jesus from Galilee and given him support 8  were also there, watching from a distance. 27:56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
