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

  • Cleve
    Matthew 28:19-20 The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is not a tittle its a command. Jesus command us to do this whenever we're baptizing someone. 1 John 5:9 said, if we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which He hath testified of His son. So Peter testimony is greater than Jesus'? I don't think so.

    Verses 12 - 15 can make someone wonder if Jesus really did raise again, but not me, cause I know He is very real. Just look at the words He spoke while on earth, and the signs of the end times. But I have my very personal walk and experiences to let me know that The Holy trinity of God is very real !!!!! I praise the Lord each day and am in His word always. I keep in perpetual prayer in my heart!!

  • MockingBird
    God's word is His command to me and all that know Him as Lord and Savior : God's word is not optional : I cannot pick and choose nor is His word a buffet !!! What my Lord has spoken to me I believe I am to share with my fellow believers : the only word that the lost and unbelievers need to know is of the salvation that is available to them through the death , burial , and resurrection of Jesus Christ .I am not to give that which is Holy unto the dogs. God is with me always when I observe to be doing His word in accordance with His will.
