Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 28:6


28:6 Come, see the place where the Lord lay - Probably in speaking he rose up, and going before the women into the sepulchre, said, Come, see the place. This clearly reconciles what St. John relates, #John 20:12|, this being one of the two angels there mentioned.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 28:6


Mt 28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. The women had not seen him rise and had to be informed. They therefore came to the sepulcher after the resurrection. Christ had risen "as he said". For the prophecies of a resurrection see Mt 16:21 Lu 24:6. See the place where the Lord lay. The angel does not say "your", but "the" Lord--the Lord of the angels as well as men.

Discussion for Matthew 28

  • Irene123
    To TKN95 on Matt. 28:19 - Here are 2 answers - they DID baptize in the NAME (Acts 2:38); they DID go into all the world, albeit a little slowly (Acts 11:19). But even today, as Christians, we are sometimes 'slow' to respond if it seems scary or what ever the case may be. But HE knows how to get His work done, i.e, persecution, and etc.
  • Tkn95
    Why did the disciples not do as Christ said in vs 19?
  • Irene123
    I just now noticed this (as many times as I have read it!!); they believed Jesus as soon as they saw Him. The disciples didn't until Jesus broke bread with them. Not always, but as a rule women will accept the truth before their men will - be they husbands, brothers, what have you. Women are more 'tender', as a general rule. I know some say more gullible, but - that's God's doing.

    To BSP on Matt. 28:18 - And Jesus spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
  • Irene123
    Matt. 28:18; And Jesus spake saying, ALL power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
  • Irene123
    Matt. 28:18 - Proves Jesus is God; Jesus is God's name; "ALL power is given to me"; Deut. 4:39; 6:4; Isa. 42:8; 43:11; 44:6, v. 8; Eph. 4:5; Philip. 2:9-10; ALL power; God does not know another savior beside Him.
