Metaphysical meaning of veil (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of veil (mbd)
veil, of the temple, rent in the midst.

Meta. "The veil of the temple was rent in the midst" (Luke 23:45) means that the last step in regeneration is the giving up of the thought of the corporeal existence of the body temple. Then the veil of sense thought that conceals the spiritual body is rent, and man comes into consciousness of the body imperishable and eternal. (See RENT.)
