    The veil was symbolic of the old covenant a levitical Priesthood. The new covenant REPLACES the old covenant. A Melchezedec Priesthood is now in effect via blood of Christ.No more temples made with hands NOW our high priest has to be born in us via the SEED of the sower, living WORDS of God,Abide in me and i in you.He always refers to himself as the SON OF MAN, MANKINDS FRUIT UNTO GOD TH MANCHILD

    Matthew 27:50-54:
    A divine rearrangement took place after Jesus' last cry: Temple Veil open for new era, the earth responded to the call of Jehovah, the rocks splits and the grave opened up for believers forever and the centurion affirmed the ultimate genuineness of the Son of God who died on the cross.
    Now there is an open door for for those who will believe.

    Verse 17~Pilate tried to release Jesus by contrasting him with a known criminal. The people showed how hard hearted they were in asking for Barabbas to be released instead of Jesus Christ.

    "Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children." verse 25. The people pronounced a breath-taking curse upon themselves.

    And were reminded of it later, very strongly...

    "Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us." Acts 5:28.
  • A disciple
    To this day the disobedient Jews continue in their obstinate refusal of any and all reference in Scriptures to the Anointed; and vainly hope in another kind to arise after their own imaginations. They say that Moshiach can be anybody; and they even go so far as to start appointing one by themselves, from among their own. Interestingly, EVERYONE ELSE knew that Jesus was Moshiach, but they refused!
  • A disciple
    "And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews?...For he knew that for envy they had delivered him." Keywords which help us see this picture as it really was; that we have no need of putting flowerful unrealistic notions to the actual people and events, but that we may know the truth as God sees it; that EVERYONE knew but the blind haters!
  • A disciple
    "And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing." Who among us would be able to exercise such self control and hold our peace in such an situation of outrageous cruelty and injustice? In the furnace of affliction would be an understatement! Yet the Lord endured all the insult and humiliation and utter contempt being COMPLETELY INNOCENT, and bore it quietly in faith!
  • Saint
    In matt 27:52, these are those that died in faith - Abraham, Isaac Jacob, etc. The holy city is the early church - not natural Jerusalem which was not holy since they had just crucified Jesus... read Hebrews 11 about the faith these spiritual warriors had... but without receiving the holy ghost, they could not be made perfect...

    As we approach the solar eclipse I thought of vs 45 when darkness fell from 6th hour to 9th hour. My thoughts will be on this as the eclipse takes place. One of the best sermons I have heard lately was about the fact that the worst that happened to Jesus that day wasn t most likely not the physical toll he took but the period of time that his father had to turn his back on his son.

    Matthew 27 is;( Christ was tried, crucified, buried, V.66 they sealed the entrance of his tomb.)v.52."And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept, arose, v.53"and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the city and appeared to many."There were saints/dead before the birth of Christ. It does not say 52-53 is a glimpse into the future.Read V.54

    Hi Jacqueline; I think that this was a special sign done for showing the people of Jerusalem what they were not willing to believe in; and of that which will happen in Israel and all over the world when Jesus is revealed at His coming in glory and power. The Saints who sleep shall be the first to arise, and then we who still live and remain till His coming; "and we shall be changed, IN A MOMENT."
  • Jacqueline mitchell
    please explain matt 27:52 is this the special resurrection and where could i find other verses related to this? thank you so much.
  • Lu2677
    Felicia,I saw your verse you call "fundamental doctrine"I believe all of God's word is fundamental, all 66 books. All essential to salvation. I am not a Fundamentalist. Man cannot pick and chose which scripture is essential doctrine,but they do. All of God's word is sound doctrine.
  • Felicia
    A Disciple - Many of us are like Judas we feel remorse for the evil we have done to others but not repentant towards God. It's the disposition of heart. We will do well to learn from David in Ps 51:4 "Against thee, thee only, have I sinned and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest .." Judas preferred to die for himself he didn't want Jesus to die for Him.
  • Felicia
    Lu2677 - Here are some of the essential Christian doctrines: a) The deity of Christ Jh 8:24,58; Ex 3:14; Heb 1:8 b) Salvation by grace Eph 2:8-9; c) The Resurrection of Christ 1Cor 15:14-17 d) The Gospel Jh 1:1,14; Rom 1:16; 1Cor 15:1-4; Gal 1:8-9 e) Monotheism There's only one God Ex 20:3-6 Isa 43:10; 44:6-8. I hope this will help a little.

    Disciple - we go over and over the same scriptures because after a few days this site removes them and 'later' ones on here don't get to see them. There are people on here sincerely looking for answers - and they are getting various answers to the same needs, BUT - it's God will show them His answers, amongst them all.
  • Lu2677
    What are "fundamental doctrines"?
  • A disciple
    Reading Matthew Henry's Commentary is very edifying. It makes me wonder how hard it is to find, that Christians today can have a meaningful discussion about the things of the Lord. I wonder how much some have us to keep going over and over the same fundamental doctrines of the faith and trying to expound the sense and meaning of the Word! For the lateness of the hour, we ought to be farther along.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Thank You Lord for enduring all these for us.
  • A disciple
    "Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders," This has always struck me as powerfully important. When a man does wickedly, and afterwards sees the things he did come to their expected results, and feels scared and sorry for himself; how doesn't he go to God in "repentance?"
  • A disciple
    1 Corinthians 12:18 "But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him." Bruce; everyone who loves the Lord Jesus is our brother and sister; and God has ordained that we be saved by faith in the words told us by other men. Our part is to try the spirits, whether they are of God; and not to despise or reject any who are not against us, but really on our part.
  • Irene123
    To anyone that may be confused about reading a commentary about the Bible - such as Matthew Henry's Bible commentaries which are on here (at the top of each pg. along with 'comments') - a commentary is using WISDOM in reading it - and God BLESSES wisdom. As with the Bible - we should pray for His wisdom in reading it. There are many other 'modern' commentaries online.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Thank you Jesus for Your sacrifice for me, an undeserving sinner. Jesus suffered because of our transgression. By His stripes we are healed.
  • Irene123
    Sorry about 'crucifying' that lovely song, but my heart was in it.
  • Irene123
    "I will cling to the old rugged cross, 'til my burdens at last I lay down; I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it someday for a crown."
  • Bruce
    Irene:11/19 Your post,centurians asked. Something you read in another book! 3nd time! What line are "you"crossing? we are to live by every WORD of GOD:Luke 4:4. not other books! Satan is a roaring lion, a powerful demon,he can use the littlest thing to drive someone into the lake of fire! Using The Lord's Word correctly has everything to do with someone's salvation. Is He calling you.John 6:44
  • Irene123
    To Bruce, one month ago; I didn't say 'centurions' ..........; I'm not upset by your 'correction', I just know what I said. And come to that - 'centurions, priests, and Pharisees - have NOTHING to do with - salvation. So a mistaken word in such a place isn't hurting anybody. And - they can simply read it for themselves - which they ought to do anyway - Acts 17:11.

    (25) "Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children." We read these things, and our hearts break with anguish, and we can't believe ANYONE could be so hateful and cruel! All through their history, the disobedient children of Israel have sought every way to break their bands of God, and the world has watched with disgust. But are not the Nations doing the same?
  • Matt
    It was prophecy that our Savior was to be crucified from the time Eve and Adam were literally and spiritually seduced. God told Satan, "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; It shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel." He came here to destroy death: the devil. If you believe on Him, you will be saved; but if you don't, you will die in hell.

    Worthy the lamb that was slain. His kingdom shall have no end.
