This is Mark 15:37-38:
Matthew 27:50-51 is similar. Luke, however, seems to reverse the order of events. This is Luke 23:45-46:
Meh. The events seem to happen at roughly the same time. One can therefore either describe the death of Jesus first, or the tearing of the curtain first. Either way is fine. The ESV uses the word "then" in Luke, apparently indicating a specific order of events, but the Greek word seems to be "kai", which is more literally translated "and".
