Matthew and Mark make it clear—the rending of the veil followed immediately upon the death of Christ. In deed, it is accurate to say it “occurred at the moment of that death.” It was through the death of Christ that a way into the heavenly sanctuary was opened. The only person who could die the only kind of death that would satisfy the justice of God and save lost mankind was Jesus Christ.

It was a voluntary sacrifice. He chose to die for our sins. He chose to die in our place. The curtain is the way into the Most Holy Place where God dwells in heaven (Hebrews 10:19-20). Heaven is opened up for all who take refuge in Jesus Christ (4:16).

1 Peter 4:6

For this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

Those souls in paradise eagerly received the gospel that Christ preached. This was the one who completed their salvation and redeemed them, and at Christ’s resurrection they were the firstfruits.

1 Corinthians 15:23

But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.

Matthew 27:52

And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Christ used his other key to release these saints from the prison house. For although Abraham’s bosom was a place of peace and rest, it was not heaven. Heaven was refused to them because their sins could not be taken away until the Redeemer came. With Christ’s death the "guilded cage" could be opened and those souls could "fly" to heaven.
