Wesley's Notes for Matthew 27:56


27:56 James - The less: he was so called, to distinguish him from the other James, the brother of John; probably because he was less in stature.


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.

Discussion for Matthew 27

    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.

    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.

    Disciple - we go over and over the same scriptures because after a few days this site removes them and 'later' ones on here don't get to see them. There are people on here sincerely looking for answers - and they are getting various answers to the same needs, BUT - it's God will show them His answers, amongst them all.
  • Lu2677
    What are "fundamental doctrines"?
  • A disciple
    Reading Matthew Henry's Commentary is very edifying. It makes me wonder how hard it is to find, that Christians today can have a meaningful discussion about the things of the Lord. I wonder how much some have us to keep going over and over the same fundamental doctrines of the faith and trying to expound the sense and meaning of the Word! For the lateness of the hour, we ought to be farther along.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Thank You Lord for enduring all these for us.
