The Law came into force on the 6th day of the 3rd month, on Pentecost 1513Sivan6 at Mount Sinai - see . It was terminated on 586Ab10 with the destruction of the temple by King Nebuchanezzar and then restarted on 455Tishri24 with an oath sworn by all the people - see . It was suspended for several years in the days of Judas Maccabeus when the temple was defiled, but in this case it did not need to be restarted because the suspension did not last for a generation. Then it was finally nailed to the stake and finished on 33Nisan14 with the death of the Christ.
19 In answer Jesus said to them: Break down this temple, and in three days I will raise it up (John 2).
When Jesus died, the temple was knocked down and rebuilt 3 days later. Of course the temple was not knocked down physically, but it ceased to have an spiritual function, as indicated by the curtain being rent in two by God. But those who did not put faith in the Christ were still under the curse of the law until 1917 - see . The law itself ended on 33Nisan14. The temple was then obsolete and near to vanishing but still in existence.
13 In his saying a new [covenant] he has made the former one obsolete. Now that which is made obsolete and growing old is near to vanishing away [the temple] (Hebrews 8).
10 but have to do only with foods and drinks and various baptisms. They were legal requirements pertaining to the flesh and were imposed until the appointed time to set things straight (Hebrews 9).
So God chose to end the law when Jesus died, this being the appointed time to set things straight. God had had that right for some time due to the breaches of the covenant by the Jews. He chose not to end it whilst he was still unhappy with man. But Jesusí death reconciled God and man and this enabled God to remove the law which was an instrument of condemnation.
13 Christ by purchase released us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse instead of us, because it is written: Accursed is every man hanged upon a stake (Galatians 3).
Jesus' death released only the Jews who became Christians from the curse of the Law. The Jews without faith remained under it under 1917. Of course any of them could have been released at any time merely by believing in the Son of David as the prophets had instructed them to do. But Jews, like Muslims and like Christians and like Atheists, believe not in the truth, but in what in their estimation is the most convenient thing for them to believe in. We would all rather put more and more cushions between our warm backsides and the lie than sit down on the cold stone of truth.
The curtain being rent in two meant that the ark had gone. The ark having gone meant that the salvation of the law covenant no longer applied, which meant that God had ended the covenant. So the temple became a place of empty and legally false worship from then on until it was destroyed by Titus. True worship is of course the following of Godís current commandments.
There is reason to suppose that the ark was in the temp on 32Tishri10 when the high priest entered the most holy, since the law required, that once a year, on that very day...
13 He must also put the incense upon the fire before Jehovah, and the cloud of the incense must overspread the Ark cover, which is upon the Testimony, that he may not die (Leviticus 16).
So if the ark was not there, then presumably Caiaphas would have died. However we know from Daniel 12 that there was a dry period of 3Ĺ years from 25Tishri to 29Nisan before John's baptism during which time the law was incapable of keeping people in the 2AC. So presumably those who kept the law from 25Tishri to 33Nisan remained in the 1AC only by reason of their true faith. But those who kept the law after 33Nisan14 achieved nothing other than the keeping clean of their consciences, which would keep them in the 1AC. But their now false faith in an ended law would not keep them in the 1AC. So from 25Tishri onwards those who attempted to enter the law, failed to do so since they failed to be baptised into Moses. So the woman caught at adultery in John 8, were she less than 26 odd, may well have not been under law, for John 8 occurred between the 3rd and 4th passover of Jesus' ministry, i.e. in the years 32 AD. So if this girl was 19 in 25 AD she would have been 26 in 32 AD and not under law. Jesus, who entered the law at 20 years old like everyone else, at his 20th passover, was already in the law by the time the law baptism ended.
Now Jesus was the last sacrifice under the law of Moses, so of course he had to be offered up by the high priest. Jesus was not a priest under law, being for one thing in the wrong tribe and for another thing being annointed to start a new religion and being for another thing the sacrifice to end the law. So Caiaphas said under inspiration....
49 But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that
year, said to them: "You do not know anything at all,
50 and you do not reason out that it is to your benefit for one man to die in behalf of the people and not for the whole nation to be destroyed." [He offered Jesus as a sacrifice to appease the Romans rather than having them come and crush a Christian revolt that they feared]
51 This, though, he did not say of his own originality; but because he was high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was destined to die for the nation,
52 and not for the nation only, but in order that the children of God who are scattered about he might also gather together in one (John 11).
14 Caiaphas was, in fact, the one that counseled the Jews that it was to their benefit for one man to die in behalf of the people (John 18).
59 But/Meantime the chief-priests and the entire
Sanhedrin [Governing Body of the
Watchtower] were looking for false-witness against
order to put him to death,
60 but they found none, [out of] many false-witnesses having come forward. Later on 2 came forward
61 and said: This one said, 'I am able to throw down the temple of God and build it up in 3 days [rebuilt and knocked down in 3 stages, 3 days, the day of WSS2, day of GNS2 and Day of the Watchtower being a False church. Or perhaps 3 months??].'
62 With that the chief/high-priest stood up and said to him: Are you answering nothing? What is it these are testifying against you?
63 But Jesus kept silent. So the chief/high-priest said to him: By the living God I put-you-under-oath to tell us whether you are the Christ, the Son of God!
64 Jesus said to him: You yourself said [it]. Yet I say to you, From hereforward you [people] will see the Son of the man sitting out of the right-hand [parts] of power and coming on [epi] the clouds of heaven [the bombs].
65 Then the chief/high-priest [Literally: Caiaphas. Word symbolically: Doctrinal Chief of the Watchtower] ripped his outer-garments, saying: He has blasphemed! What further need do we have of witnesses? [we have enough Jehovah's witnesses, we have fulfilled Matthew 24:14, the good news is preached in every corner of the world - what do we want with these Lords' Witnesses?] See! Now you have heard the blasphemy.
66 What do you think? They said answering: He is liable to death
67 Then they spat into his face and clobbered him. Others slapped him,
68 saying: Prophesy to us, you Christ. Who is it that struck you?(Matthew 26).

55 But/Meantime the chief-priests and the whole
Sanhedrin were looking for testimony against
Jesus [they want
to disfellowship the descended 1NC saints] to put
him to death, but they were not finding any.
56 Many, indeed, were testifying falsely against him, but their testimonies were not in agreement.
57 Also, certain ones were rising and testifying falsely against him, saying:
58 We heard him say, 'I will throw down this temple that was hand-made [the temple of the human sanctified 2NC Lords] and in 3 days I will build another not hand-made [that of the 1BRC and 2BRC, the final rapture church].'
59 But neither on these [grounds] was their testimony agreeing.
60 Finally the chief/high-priest rose in their midst and questioned Jesus, saying: Are you answering nothing? What is it these are testifying against you?
61 But he kept silent and answered nothing. Again the chief/high-priest began to question him and said to him: Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?
62 Then Jesus said: I am; and you [people] will see the Son of the man sitting out of the right-hand [parts] of power and coming with [meta] the clouds of heaven.
63 At this the chief/high-priest [Literally: Caiaphas. Word symbolically: 2nd President of the LWs, the star of Laodicea] ripped his inner-garments and said: What further need do we have of witnesses?
64 You heard the blasphemy. What is evident to you? They all condemned him to be liable to death.
65 And some started to spit on him and to cover his face and clobber him and say to him: Prophesy! And, the court-attendants took him in slaps (Mark 14).

So he actualy ripped both his inner and his outer garments predicting the end of his priesthood over the sons of the ICC and the sons of the JAC, although the garments are literal this does not preclude the obvious symbolic meaning!
Here is what this means. Just as Solomon' Temple was replaced by Zerubbable's temple which was rebuilt by Judas Maccabeus, so FDS1 was replaced by FDS2 which was rebuilt as regards saints by MZ whilst preserving its water baptism. Likewise FDS3 is replaced by FDS4 which is rebuilt by Jesus (through his wife, the descended 1NC saints) into the temple of the rapture covenants, the 1BRC and the 2BRC, whilst preserving its water baptism. The physical pattern of the 2 temples of the Jews is thus repeated in each of the two presences of the Christ. And Paul then MZ are the Christs of the first presence and Gordon and Jesus' wife are the Christs of the second. In the second presence, the JWs do not think that they need any LWs to do any further witnessing, and the LWs do not think they need any descended 1NC saints telling them what to do.
Q: So what good is a church that lasts merely a few months?

The Ark of the Covenant is Michael's angelic body, the ransom for Adam's
The Covenant is the law literally but stands for THE COVENANT, which is the ARC. For all sons of Adam end up in this covenant or in Gehenna.
The 2 Cherubs on the Ark are Gabriel and Melchizedek, the master mediators of the FRC and the CRC.
The first tent is the tent of the CRC, the second tent is the tent of the ARC, the courtyard is the FRC
The curtain is Jesus' fleshly body
