People's Bible Notes for Matthew 27:44

Mt 27:44 The thieves also, . . . cast the same in his teeth. Luke only tells of the penitence of one (Lu 23:39-43). Doubtless, both at first reviled him, but one was converted in three hours that they hung side by side.

Discussion for Matthew 27

  • Saint
    In matt 27:52, these are those that died in faith - Abraham, Isaac Jacob, etc. The holy city is the early church - not natural Jerusalem which was not holy since they had just crucified Jesus... read Hebrews 11 about the faith these spiritual warriors had... but without receiving the holy ghost, they could not be made perfect...

    As we approach the solar eclipse I thought of vs 45 when darkness fell from 6th hour to 9th hour. My thoughts will be on this as the eclipse takes place. One of the best sermons I have heard lately was about the fact that the worst that happened to Jesus that day wasn t most likely not the physical toll he took but the period of time that his father had to turn his back on his son.

    Matthew 27 is;( Christ was tried, crucified, buried, V.66 they sealed the entrance of his tomb.)v.52."And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept, arose, v.53"and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the city and appeared to many."There were saints/dead before the birth of Christ. It does not say 52-53 is a glimpse into the future.Read V.54

    Hi Jacqueline; I think that this was a special sign done for showing the people of Jerusalem what they were not willing to believe in; and of that which will happen in Israel and all over the world when Jesus is revealed at His coming in glory and power. The Saints who sleep shall be the first to arise, and then we who still live and remain till His coming; "and we shall be changed, IN A MOMENT."

    please explain matt 27:52 is this the special resurrection and where could i find other verses related to this? thank you so much.
  • Lu2677
    Felicia,I saw your verse you call "fundamental doctrine"I believe all of God's word is fundamental, all 66 books. All essential to salvation. I am not a Fundamentalist. Man cannot pick and chose which scripture is essential doctrine,but they do. All of God's word is sound doctrine.
