In the Dan Brown book, The Lost Symbol, there is a discussion about the weight of a human soul. Not necessarily a metaphorical weight, but rather a physical one. Considering how Jesus bore the sins of every soul that ever existed, what would the physical weight of that be? Could his sacrifice and resulting connection to all souls create a physical reaction in the Earth itself? When a soul carrying such a burden leaves a body, could it fracture the ground? Could it tear down the thick curtains in the Temple? Some who don’t believe in such things may say these events were mere coincidence or metaphorical artistic license. Instead, we need to ask ourselves what the impact of a single life can be, especially one laid down for their friends.
