Bible Commentary for Matthew 27:61

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 27:61


27:62 On the morrow, the day that followed the day of the preparation - The day of preparation was the day before the Sabbath, whereon they were to prepare for the celebration of it. The next day then was the Sabbath according to the Jews. But the evangelist seems to express it by this circumlocution, to show the Jewish Sabbath was then abolished.

27:63 That impostor said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again - We do not find that he had ever said this to them, unless when he spoke of the temple of his body, #John 2:19|,21. And if they here refer to what he then said, how perverse and iniquitous was their construction on these words, when he was on his trial before the council? #Mt 26:61|. Then they seemed not to understand them!
