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.

Mt 27:50 When he had cried again with a loud voice. "It is finished" (Joh 19:30), the sixth word from the cross. The three evangelists all dwell upon the loudness of the cry, as if it had been the triumphant note of the conqueror.

Discussion for Matthew 27

  • Lu2677
    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
  • A disciple
    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."
  • Jacqueline mitchell
    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.

    A Disciple - Many of us are like Judas we feel remorse for the evil we have done to others but not repentant towards God. It's the disposition of heart. We will do well to learn from David in Ps 51:4 "Against thee, thee only, have I sinned and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest .." Judas preferred to die for himself he didn't want Jesus to die for Him.
  • Felicia
    Lu2677 - Here are some of the essential Christian doctrines: a) The deity of Christ Jh 8:24,58; Ex 3:14; Heb 1:8 b) Salvation by grace Eph 2:8-9; c) The Resurrection of Christ 1Cor 15:14-17 d) The Gospel Jh 1:1,14; Rom 1:16; 1Cor 15:1-4; Gal 1:8-9 e) Monotheism There's only one God Ex 20:3-6 Isa 43:10; 44:6-8. I hope this will help a little.
