    Sacha, that story reminds me of friends of mine when they were fairly newly married having an argument on the beach in Thailand, she leaves up the hill and he follows. Just ahead of the tsunami! They ended up housing at their nearby home many travelers until they could find transportation to their home countries .

    There is a place called Hades that Jesus went to for three days and three nights. And in Hades, there were compartments, as we know from Luke Chapter 16. The Old Testament saints were there on one side, and those who rejected were on the other side and were in torment.

    So Jesus, when He dismissed His Spirit on the cross, He went down and proclaimed the victory. And when He rose from the dead, many of the Old Testament saints appeared, and they revealed themselves to many in Jerusalem.

    According to 1 Corinthians Chapter 15, we know that Jesus revealed Himself to people for 40 days. At one time, 500 people, as witnesses to the resurrection of Christ.

    What happened to the dead, while the graves were opened before his resurrection?

    Were they a)I've but could not move?

    What was their state of mind if they had any?

    While the Bible does not tell us who the wife of Pilate the governor was, the Apocryphal book, The Gospel of Nicodemus, identifies her as Claudia Procula, and a granddaughter of the Emperor Augustus.

    Nina,

    "And, behold, (1) the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and (2) the earth did quake, and (3) the rocks rent; And (3) the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God." Mat 27:51-54

    This was preceded by 3 hours of darkness from noon til 3 PM.

    We are not told any more information about the saints who arose only to die again as did Lazarus who who Jesus raised from the dead. Jesus was The Firstfruits of those who have died In Christ.

    "But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept." 1Co 15:20

    The Old Testament saints, believed God, just as Job of old trusted God.

    "For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me." Job 19:25-27

    We will be raised INCORRUPTIBLE!

    "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." 1Co 15:51-52

    These that arose were not changed; not raised incorruptible.

    Nina, May the Spirit grace you with HIS wisdom and His understanding.



    Matthew 27:52-53 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

    (53) and came out of the graves after HIS RESURRECTION, and went in to the holy city, and appeared to many.

    Understanding these scriptures takes other scriptures and the HOLY SPIRIT causing you to understand.

    Isaiah 26:19 Thy dead men shall live, TOGETHER WITH MY DEAD BODY SHALL THEY ARISE......

    This prophecy is three fold, Christ promises the (called out) saints of the old testament and the (called out) saints of the new testament along with (HIS) dead body would RISE TOGETHER.

    Hebrews 11:16 But now they (saints of old) desire a better country, that is, a heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called there God: for he hath prepared them a (HOLY) CITY. The one in Matthew 27:53

    Hebrews 11:39-40 And these all (saints of old), having obtained a good report through faith, RECEIVED NO THE PROMISE (eternal life, it would be given to them at Christ resurrection).

    (40) God having provided some better thing for us (the called out of the new testament will never see death, we were resurrected with Christ), that they (saints of old) without us (new saints) should not be made perfect (image of Christ, who only hath immortality, [eternal life] 1 Timothy 6:16).

    Luke 20:36 Neither can they (the called out) die any more (they [WE ARE SIN] died with Christ on the cross, were buried and arose with him): for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, BEING THE CHILDREN OF THE RESURRECTION.

    Revelation 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION.

    Psalms 103:20 Bless the Lord, YE HIS ANGELS, that excel in strength, that do his commandments,

    hearkening unto the voice of his word.

    Revelation 7:4 Describes the called out saints of the old testament that were sealed with the Holy Spirit (Christ).

  • MARK MATHEWS on Matthew 27:52
    First of all in Ephesians 4:8-12 GOD descends First to into Paradise, a great Water separates Hades=Hell with Paradise in the lower Parts of the Earth. GOD=Jesus 3 full Nights and 3 full Days in belly of the Earth, then arises with the Saint's to 3rd Heaven. Abraham and the Beggar are with them all. That is why Hades has more than doubled in size as GOD said it did. Paradise is no more. GOD took it all away at his Resurrection. Resurrected Saints where seen by Many, Matthew 27: 50-55. Proving the Resurrection of GOD and his Saints into Glory=3rd Heaven. Where we are hoping and Praying to get to. As they Ascended to Glory so will we. GOD= Lord Jesus Christ proves this in Bodily form, to show us all what wait's us all. Glory!!! I hope this helps all of you as it did me.

  • Galatians 5 Works of the Flesh on Matthew 27:49
    Galatians 5

    19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these:

    Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

    20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

    21 Envyings, murders*, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

    *anyone ever say to you; "you are dead to me?" That's a murder.

    Isaiah 55:9

    James Bible

    For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

    James Bible

    For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater

    James Bible

    So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 27:49
    In that portion of Scripture, Jesus had cried out, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (verse 46). The people around the cross who heard Jesus' cry thought He was calling out to Elias (Elijah), whereas Jesus was calling out to God His Father.

    But the people were expecting Elijah to come before the Messiah, but they didn't know or failed to remember what Jesus said earlier, that John the Baptist did come in fulfilment of prophecy ( Malachi 3:1) by coming in the spirit & power of Elijah ( Matthew 11:7-14).

  • How To Make Bible Study Explode on Matthew 27
    Know what? If we got a new video game we'd be awake 24/7, figuring out how to play it. Another 2 years trying to beat the game (including Time spent on YouTube watching cheats and tricks).

    We're all over the place trying to Beat That Game!!!

    Tell me why we don't go at the Bible the same way?? Dig, dig deeper, read commentaries on here, read commentaries on Google.

    The Holy Spirit is your TEACHER?!? Ask Him. If you'll sit still long enough and be quiet, you will get answers.

    PRAY for a TEACHABLE spirit.

    They're not cheats; but your Bible will start speaking to your spirit.

    Get a Study Bible that has Center of Each page, reference columns: with the abc notes within the scriptures. Those send you to other scriptures that EXPAND the meanings or reveal a prophesy.

    :D. You'll get as good as Chris eventually.

    Get a large print concordance. Serious study. The Bible and "helps" are in the front of the books. Tells you the "tricks" on how to use them. The best maps and charts are on Google.

    I was fooling around one day with the Search Engine on this website... typed in CHINA. Up pops 3 scriptures!! Pandemics in the end times come from there and around the coasts to N Africa. May be places where poor people have no food at all?

    Pandemics are real. And we are going to see one after another. It's in the Bible.

    Learn to study! For yourselves. Share what you find, on here. IT IS FUN! God speaks to us through His Word.

    When you sit down to study: pray: I HAVE THE SAME MIND OF CHRIST !! I receive it by faith right now. God watches over His Word To Perform it.

    Give that fine mind of yours To The Holy Spirit, stand back, and see what He will show you. Habakkuk 2:2-4

    You gotta get plugged into the Holy Spirit. Depend on Him. Pursue Him. Be quiet and Listen To Him.

    Catch the fire! Mishael

    please read john 1:1 and phili 2:6-8, for further understanding about the diety of Jesus Christ...
  • Rob - in Reply on Matthew 27
    If a person understands that there is only 1 God then you can not confuse Jesus as God .

    It's really that simple .

    James did well when he said thou believes there is 1 God you do well , even the devils know this and tremble .

    You are not doing well .
  • Alex - in Reply on Matthew 27
    Comments by Alex on God the Son in Hebrews 1 it says unto the Son he says thy throne O God is forever.It was the FATHER himself that said that everything has multiply after His Kind in heaven and earth and we see that Jesus is able to multiply himself in humanity via his seed the word,and he said to whom the word came that good seed it made them Gods and the scripture cannot be broken. Jesus does not reproduce himself after mankind he neva had any flesh and blood children,All his children were spirits the H.G Plural simply b/c his seed is the WORD which is spirit thus his children are spirits Gods, He breathe on them and they received the H.G.,His breath was his word which is his seed as he said the Good seed is the words of God. His woman is the world as God so loved the world etc and the field is the WORLD where that good seed will be sown meaning humanity,thats y the Prophets saw the WORLD in travail and birth pains simply b/c of his precious seed the living word he reproduces after the God kind, thats y he is saying that which is born of the spirit is spirit thus he reproduces after the God kind proving he is truly God the Son. He only took on flesh and blood to die for the sins of the WORLD BUT HE SAID B/F ABRAHAM WAS I AM.. He even tells us his WORD is the very seed of the Kingdom. Only God cd reproduce after the SPIRIT/God KIND . There cd not be an Israel of God if Jesus cd not reproduce after the God kind which is the H.G. the child of Promise Sprits ( Gods ) That are gona BE BORN IN US SINNERS via his seed/word the new covenant. Whosoever receives one such CHILD IN MY NAME RECEIVES ME thats his offspring THE H.G. God .GB

    Matthew 27.43

    He trusted in God ; let him deliver him now , if he will have him : for he said , I am the Son of God .

    Notice Jesus was condemned for claiming to be the Son of God .

    " the Son OF God " not GOD the SON . It can not be both , the Bible never says Jesus is GOD . There is only 1 LORD GOD .

    Yes Jesus is born OF God , not at all the same thing . Jesus was condemned for claiming to be the Son OF God .

    God bears witness that Jesus is his Son .

    witnessed by the word of God the Bible and even Jesus enemies ?

    GOD the SON , never mentioned in the Bible .

    If any person came in any time and said He is GOD no one in their right mind would give it a second thought .

    Matthew 27v46

    Matthew 27 v 50

    The death of the trinity doctrine .

    If you believe the trinity doctrine God left Jesus alone here and Jesus did not know why .

    Gods in full control none else here and many other places in the Bible

    Jesus still had the Holy Spirit seen in verse 50 until he gave it up .

    But this should be enough if you can sink some thought into it ...

    The trinity here in Father , Son and Holy Ghost are now separate. Poof goes you triune God that never existed to begin with !
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 27:51
    Mt 27:51: "And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent".

    This was another great event that took place apart from Jesus' Sacrifice & His Resurrection. Right at the time of Jesus' death, at the evening oblation, the officiating priest would have seen this spectacular event of the heavy veil (curtain) that separated the Holiest Place from the Holy Place in the Temple, was torn apart from top to bottom. If man had cut it, it would probably be cut from bottom to top, but God showed that He did it, from the top downwards.

    This is significant for you & me as it is one of God's declarations that the Work of the Cross (that Work that was planned from the beginning of time for mankind's sins), was finally accomplished with the death of His Son Jesus Christ. His death not only was Jesus being our substitute to pay for our sins, but also averted God's Anger against us sinners. So the rending of the veil indicated that God also opened up the way for those who believe on Jesus, both Jew & Gentile, to now have access direct to God without the need for a priest to intercede or make sacrifice or oblation. Roman Catholics still go to their priest for confession, but the Way has been opened for us to approach God, through His Son, to talk to Him, to confess our sins, & to enjoy His Presence in our lives. Had Christ not died, had the veil not be rent, had not Jesus arisen from the grave, we would still be in our sins & stand guilty before God. Jesus' Sacrifice for us was truly great & for eternity & so we ever remain grateful to Him & growing in love & faith for Him Who has done it all for us.
