Origin and History

The term “beyond the veil” finds its origin in ancient Jewish tradition, specifically in reference to the veil that concealed the innermost sanctuary of the Temple in Jerusalem. This veil served as a partition within the Jewish place of worship, demarcating the sacred tabernacle from the main body of the Temple. The concept gained prominence through the English translation of the Bible by William Tyndale. Over time, it evolved beyond its literal meaning to symbolize the enigmatic boundary separating the earthly realm from the realm of the divine or the afterlife. Thus, “beyond the veil” came to represent the mysterious and spiritual division between the present world and the next.

The veil actually represented the divide between God and mankind because of sin. There was always the separation and inacessability to the Spirit of God personally and individually until Jesus came. His birth, life, suffering, death and resurrection were the ultimate price recquired to destroy the manifestation of the veil as anything that separates us from God.
