Matthew 28 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: The Risen Christ appears #5 Matthew 28:11-15 – The False Report the Body Was Stolen

Matthew 28:11-15 – The False Report the Body Was Stolen

MT28:11 While the women were on their way, look! some of the custodial guards entered the city of Jerusalem and reported back to the religious hierarchy everything that had happened. MT28:12 Now in a conference with the Jewish elders they took counsel. They agreed to give plenty of money to the soldiers,[1] MT28:13 telling them, “Say that his disciples came in the night and stole his body while you were sleeping. MT28:14 And if this ever reaches the governor we will convince him and you need not fear.” MT28:15 Those soldiers took the silver money and did as they were told. And just so the rumor spread around among the Jews down to this very day.

*

[1] Give plenty of money to the soldiers: Or, KJV: large money; KNX: a rich bribe. Compare Proverbs 17:23. See notes on Matthew 27:64.

“A wicked man accepts a bribe in secret to pervert the course of justice.” (Pr 17:23 NIV)

“So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first.”” (Mt 27:64 NIV)

Matthew 28:8-10 – The Two Marys Met by the Risen Christ

|| Mark 16:8; Luke 24:9; John 20:14-17

MT28:8 So, the women left quickly from the memorium with a mixture of fear and great joy. They ran to report back to the disciples of Jesus. MT28:9 And, look! Jesus met the women, saying, “What a joyous day!”[1] Those women came to Jesus falling forward to grab hold of his feet, bowing to kiss them.[2] MT28:10 Now Jesus spoke to them, “Do not be frightened! Go and report back to my brothers so that they might leave for Galilee and there they will see me.”

*

[1] What a joyous day: Or, KJV: all hail; NEB: he gave them his greeting; WMS: good morning; RHM: joy to you; WEY: peace be to you.

[2] Bowing to kiss them: The Greek is PROSEKUNESAN which literally means to bow and kiss in prostration to the ground. Or, KJV: worshipped him; NEB: clasped his feet, falling prostrate before him; BER: knelt before him.

Matthew 28:5-7 – “Jesus Was Raised Up!”

|| Mark 16:6, 7; Luke 24:5-8; John 20:13

MT28:5 Now responding to their fear the angel spoke to the women,[1] “Do not be frightened. I know you are looking for the one executed, Jesus. MT28:6 He is not here! For he has risen just as he told you. Approach and see where he lay. MT28:7 Now, quickly be on your way and tell his disciples that Jesus has risen from the dead! Look! Jesus goes ahead of you into Galilee.[2] There you will see him. Behold, I have told you so!”

*

[1] The women: The first to be told – the first to behold the empty tomb – are the female followers of Jesus who are not among his disciples. It is highly unlikely that Jewish males editing this material would admit to this unless it were the truth.

[2] Galilee: This is some distance north where the Nazarene’s ministry began. They are not told where exactly.

Matthew 28:2-4 – An Angel Rolled Away the Stone

|| Mark 16:3-5; Luke 24:2-4; John 20:11, 12

MT28:2 Now, look! a great earthquake occurred. An angel of the Lord [YHWH] descended from heaven and approaching [the tomb] he rolled away the stone and sat on top of it. MT28:3 The outward appearance of the angel was like lightning[1] and his clothing as white as snow. MT28:4 Out of fear of the angel those custodial guards who saw this began to tremble with fear and became as dead persons.[2]

*

[1] Was like lightning: Compare Judges 13:6 and Daniel 10:6. Luke 24:4 adds, “in flashing clothing.” r, NEB: face shone like lightning; TCNT: as dazzlingly as lightning.

“Then the woman went to her husband and told him, “A man of God came to me. He looked like an angel of God, very awesome. I didn’t ask him where he came from, and he didn’t tell me his name.” (Jud 13:6 NIV)

“His body was like chrysolite, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.” (Da 10:6 NIV)

[2] Became as dead persons: That is, unconscious. Or, BER: became like corpses; PME: collapsed like dead men.
