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.

Discussion for Matthew 28

  • Andy
    I truly believe in the baptism, that is mention in the book of acts. Acts 2:38
  • H
    And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Who gave it to him.
  • A disciple
    A sectarian man; a heretic; one who separates himself from sound doctrine and accepted truth according to the Scriptures. What was once understood as the Narrow Way and the Strait Gate, has turned to rather pampering of and apologizing for the weakness of the flesh, instead of mortifying its desires by the life of the Spirit. Many think they do God service but are in fact working against His Word.
  • Redeemed
    A disciple: you say that a person in a sect and what you really mean is cult believes they are the only ones that are chosen or who gets it although the only thing shared here by Brian or myself is available to anyone through the word but besides that are you not contradicting yourself when you lash out at Brian or myself for not seeing it the way you do. Do unto others as you would have done to u
  • Redeemed
    A disciple: where is the error when every baptism that was ever done in the Bible was done in the name of Jesus? Its all through the book of Acts. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the body of Jesus which is what we are baptized into and it is a fulfillment of Matthew 28:19 to the name. This was the doctrine of baptisms followed through by all the disciples and recorded in the Bible. Acts4:12
  • A disciple
    Jesus said that "Narrow is the way which leads to life..." Anyone with a true conversion and the Holy Spirit in his heart, has NO TOLERANCE OR OPEN-MINDEDNESS for error! It is the most common symptom of one who is in a sect, to think that he's the only one [chosen] who really gets it! Moreover the accusations come not out of love for the truth, but for jealously guarding their fondly held delusion
