Wesley's Notes for Matthew 28:3


28:1 #Mark 16:1|; Luke 24:1; John 20:1

28:2 An angel of the Lord had rolled away the stone and sat upon it - St. Luke and St. John speak of two angels that appeared: but it seems as if only one of them had appeared sitting on the stone without the sepulchre, and then going into it, was seen with another angel, sitting, one where the head, the other where the feet of the body had lain.
