People's Bible Notes for Matthew 27:56


Mt 27:56 Mary Magdalene. Mentioned first here, also in Lu 8:2, before the resurrection. She had been healed by the Lord. Mary the mother of James and Joses. She was the wife of Clopas or Alphaeus (Joh 19:25). The mother of Zebedee's children. Salome. John mentions "his (Jesus') mother's sister" (Joh 19:25), but does not name Salome, his own mother. Hence it is inferred that Salome was the sister of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was also at the cross.
