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 27:62-66 – Guards Seal the Tomb Against an Imposter

MT27:62 On the next day – after Preparation – the religious hierarchy and Pharisees assembled together before Pilate, MT27:63 saying, “Lord, we remember that plotter[1] said when he was alive, ‘After three days I will be raised up.’ MT27:64 So, command that the grave be secured until the third day[2] so none of his disciples can come and steal his body[3] and then claim to the people, ‘[Jesus] was raised up from the dead.’ Then the final plot will be worse than the first.” MT27:65 Pilate said to them: “You have a custodial guard.[4] Go and make the security as you know how.” MT27:66 These went their way and secured the grave, sealing the stone with the custodial guards.

*

[1] That plotter: The Greek is PLANOS. Or, KJV: deceiver; NEB: imposter.

[2] Until the third day: This demonstrates these men understood the phrase “three days” to mean parts of three. See notes elsewhere on third day.

[3] Steal his body: Compare notes on Matthew 28:12, 13.

[4] Custodial guard: The Greek is COUSTODIAN. Or, KJV: a watch; RIEU: a guard; MOF: guard of soldiers.
