Wesley's Notes for Matthew 27:50


27:50 After he had cried with a loud voice - To show that his life was still whole in him. He dismissed his spirit - So the original expression may be literally translated: an expression admirably suited to our Lord's words, #John 10:18:| No man taketh my life from me, but I lay it down of myself. He died by a voluntary act of his own, and in a way peculiar to himself. He alone of all men that ever were, could have continued alive even in the greatest tortures, as long as he pleased, or have retired from the body whenever he had thought fit. And how does it illustrate that love which he manifested in his death? Insomuch as he did not use his power to quit his body, as soon as it was fastened to the cross, leaving only an insensible corpse, to the cruelty of his murderers: but continued his abode in it, with a steady resolution, as long as it was proper. He then retired from it, with a majesty and dignity never known or to be known in any other death: dying, if one may so express it, like the Prince of life.

Discussion for Matthew 27:50

  • Olubiyi Titus for verse 50
    Matthew 27:50 could be referred to as the cry of agony that marks the victory of CHRIST over every situation in life, on earth, underneath the earth and in the heavens above. That cry breaks through every barrier of hardship, shakes the unshakeable, cracked every hardship in the lives of the saints, set free everybody held in bondage of the powers of darkness and raised back to life every deadness in the saints. Hallelujah!
