Heb 10:19-23 

The Law of God seems to form two end points.

It lead us to Christ (Galatians 3:24) - from the left, giving us conviction of sin
And The Tablets of the Law were in the Ark - to the right, giving us knowledge of God

Perhaps this means that we really can't understand the Law properly until we enter into an intimate relationship with God on His terms, as Paul also indicates:

"We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away. But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."2Cor 3:13-18

It is when God reveals Himself to us that we are transformed.

The Curtain

The Old Tabernacle had a curtain that separated the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place. This was literally torn in half and thus removed when Christ died.

"The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom." Mark 15:38

The curtain may be likened to the physical body of Christ, which having been torn apart on the cross opened for us a way to have access to God.

"Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body" Heb 10:19,20
