When Jesus died, the inner curtain of the temple was torn from top to bottom, showing that the great final sacrifice had been made and the system of sacrificial offerings was forever ended.  But when He rose three days later, Jesus became not only our Saviour but also our High Priest in the great temple in heaven. 

Now people could focus on the true sacrifice for the sins of the world.  Even though the heavenly sanctuary and our High Priest were not visible to human eyes, the disciples never felt separated from Jesus’ love and power.  When Jesus ministers in the sanctuary above, He still ministers on earth through His Holy Spirit. 

This fulfills His parting promise:  “I will be with you always, even to the end of the world.”  Jesus is still with His church.
