Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 28:6


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.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 28:6


Mt 28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. The women had not seen him rise and had to be informed. They therefore came to the sepulcher after the resurrection. Christ had risen "as he said". For the prophecies of a resurrection see Mt 16:21 Lu 24:6. See the place where the Lord lay. The angel does not say "your", but "the" Lord--the Lord of the angels as well as men.

    Rick:John1:1-14: Word was God, the Word was made flesh, His Name is Jesus without His Blood there is no salvation. 1John 1:7. There are three in heaven The Father The Word and The Holy Ghost:1John5:7. Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God:1John5:1.called: John 6:44/ washed:1John1:9/ will be:Matthew 3:11. Changed: 2Corinthians5:17. You will know! impossible not to know!

    Amen Jesus tried to make this simple for us but the devil knows if he can keep you from being baptized in that singular all powerful only saving name of Jesus he can keep from being saved Acts 4:12 none other name under heaven whereby ye must be saved Colossians 3:17 Do all in the name of Jesus .
  • Rick D
    God is very Persis in giving directions and he said in the "name" not "names" plural forum. if he had wanted us to baptize in the titles or names of God he would have used the plural here but the Hebrew word for "name" is singular and can not mean in the names of anything or anyone. You error in that in the scripture it is saying name of and then gives three different titles for that name. Just like I am a father and I am a son and I have a spirit, but my name is Rick! There is no three separate persons or a trinity mentioned anywhere in the word of God! People try to explain away that Jesus was none other than God himself manifested in the flesh, robed in flesh and dwelt among us. NO Person other than God can forgive sins, NO ONE BESIDES HIM! So it had to be God almighty that was formed as a man, not a separated being other than God!

    Wa-a-y back in '14, a person said the ascension wasn't mentioned in Matt., but that it was in Luke and this made him doubt the veracity of the Bible. Well, this person has LOTS of company. Choose ye this day whom ye shall serve, but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

    Love For TRUTH (Amen!!) There are a 'few' of us on here - Matt. 7:14
  • Mark Wettengel
    When Jesus told the disciples to baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy spirit in Mt. 28. and then Peter says for them in Act. 2 to be baptized in Jesus name, It means, "in the authority of" In Mk.16:15-20 Jesus say's, "These signs shall follow them that believe, in My name they shall" Name is referring to authority. Peter baptized in the authority of Jesus name Mt.28
