Matthew 27:45-62

45. “Our Lord was put on the cross at the third hour, which would be nine o’clock in the morning. Then at the noon hour, darkness settled down, and that cross became an altar on which the Lamb who taketh away the sin of the world was offered.” (McGee, J. Vernon, Thru the Bible: Volume IV. [Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 1983], 148)

46. “Shortly before he dies, he apparently senses an abrupt loss of the communion with the Father which had proved so intimate and significant through his life.” (Blomberg, Craig L., The New American Commentary, Volume 22, Matthew. [Nashville: Broadman Press], 419)

47. “Some mistakenly interpret his words as calling on the prophet Elijah, who would precede the Day of the Lord (Malachi 4:5), to come and rescue him.” (Blomberg, 429)

48. “One of the crowd either senses his agony or suspects incoherence and again offers a pain killer and/or thirst quencher.” (Blomberg, 420)

49. “The rest of the crowd tells the man to stop. They want to see if Elijah will indeed appear.” (Blomberg, 420)

50. “Yielded up is an active-voice verb, putting not grammatical form Jesus’ sovereignty over His own death and the voluntary surrender of His life.” (The Moody Bible Commentary, [The Moody Bible Institute of Chicago, Moody Publishers, Chicago, IL, 2014], 1512)

Veil of the Temple

51. “The rending of the veil symbolized the wonderful truth that the way was now open to God (Hebrews 10:14-26).” (Wiersbe, Warren W, The Bible Exposition Commentary New Testament Volume 1 Matthew-Galatians. [Colorado Springs: David C Cook, 2004], 103)

52. “The earthquake at Calvary signified that the demands of the law had been met and the curse of the law forever abolished (Hebrews 12:18-24).” (Wiersbe, 103)

53. “There were many witnesses who saw these certain folk because, according to Matthew, they ‘went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.” (McGee, 149)

54. “I believe that the centurion became a saved man…he knew enough to take his place beneath the cross of Christ. And that is all the God asks of any sinner.” (McGee, 149)

55. “Many women were watching from a distance, undoubtedly those who had assisted Him in His ministry (Luke 8:2).” (Wiersbe, 103)

56. This verse lists several women who were with Jesus during His death on the cross.

Burial

57. “Joseph and Nicodemus had come to believe in Jesus, even though they had not testified of their faith. God kept them hidden, as it were, that they might care of the body of Jesus.” (John 19:38-39) (Wiersbe, 104)

58. “Joseph went to Pilate on the basis that he was a disciple of Jesus.” (McGee, 150)

59-60. “A large disc-shaped stone usually sat in an inclined groove at the mouth of the tomb, making it easy to roll the stone into place but difficult to move it from the opening.” (Moody, 1512)

61. “The mention of the two Marys adds credence too their testimony of the empty tomb, and a note of pathos as they grieved for their fallen Master.” (Moody, 1512)

“This detail was important not only to show the women’s love for Jesus but also to show that they knew exactly where Jesus had been buried. They knew where to come on Sunday morning (28:1).” [Max Anders and Stuart K. Weber (2012). HNTC Vol. 01: Matthew. B&H Publishing Group. Retrieved from https://read.lifeway.com]

62-63. “Notice the plottings and maneuvering of the Jewish leaders. The disciples had forgotten that Jesus promised to rise from the dead on the third day, but His enemies remembered.” (Wiersbe, 104)

64. “They asked that Pilate make the grave secure until the third day. Then, if Jesus’ body were stolen after the third day, no one could say his prophecy had been fulfilled. Jesus himself had set the time frame, and the prophecy would have to be fulfilled in detail if it were to prove valid.” [Max Anders and Stuart K. Weber (2012). HNTC Vol. 01: Matthew. B&H Publishing Group. Retrieved from https://read.lifeway.com]

Guarding the Tomb

64-65. “This guard put an official Roman seal on the stone. All of this was of God, for now it was impossible for anyone—friend or foe—to steal the body.” (Wiersbe, 104)

66. “Without realizing it, Jewish leaders and the Roman government joined forces to help prove the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” (Wiersbe, 104)
