“And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.”
King James Version (KJV)
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.
28:6 Come, see the place where the Lord lay - Probably in speaking he rose up, and going before the women into the sepulchre, said, Come, see the place. This clearly reconciles what St. John relates, #John 20:12|, this being one of the two angels there mentioned.
Mt 28:4 The keepers. The Roman soldiers placed to guard the tomb with Pilate's consent (Mt 27:65,66).
And for feare of him, the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
