Discussion for Matthew 27

    As we approach the solar eclipse I thought of vs 45 when darkness fell from 6th hour to 9th hour. My thoughts will be on this as the eclipse takes place. One of the best sermons I have heard lately was about the fact that the worst that happened to Jesus that day wasn t most likely not the physical toll he took but the period of time that his father had to turn his back on his son.

    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

    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."

    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.
