For earlier scholars who suggested at least tentatively the possibility of a link between the tearing of the heavens and the tearing of the Temple veil, see the references in Jackson, “Death of Jesus”, p. 36, n. 22. For an argument against there being a connection between Mark 1:10 and Mark 15:38, with additional references to earlier scholarship, see Lentzen-Deis, Die Taufe Jesu, pp. 280–281.
