The magnificence of the restoration on day 53 is that the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ Himself, was given to humans. Given so that He might actually live within them and restore communion and intimacy to a new and deeper level. Now the dwelling place of God was within humans.
God left the temple at the crucifixion, and the veil was torn in two. God relocated the temple into humans with the resurrection of Jesus. Sin and death, the two factors keeping us from the presence of our holy and eternal God, were removed. God entered His new temples, His children and followers. He succeeded in making His dwelling there among them and, amazingly, within them.
