Matthew 27 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: The Final Hours: Trial, Execution and Burial – #12 Matthew 27:57-61 – Jesus’ Body Given to Joseph of Arimathea

Matthew 27:57-61 – Jesus’ Body Given to Joseph of Arimathea

|| Mark 15:42-47; Luke 23:50-55; John 19:38-42

MT27:57 Now as evening was approaching a rich man[1] named Joseph of Arimathea,[2] himself a disciple of Jesus, MT27:58 approached Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate gave the command[3] to release [the corpse]. MT27:59 Receiving the body Joseph wrapped it[4] in fine, clean linen. MT27:60 He placed the body in a new memorium[5] which he had quarried out of the rock. He then rolled a great stone at the opening to the memorium and departed. MT27:61 But, there were Mary the Magdalene and the other Mary sitting before the grave.

*

[1] A rich man: Note the prophecy at Isaiah 53:9.

[2] Joseph of Arimathea: See Mark 15:43-46; Luke 23:50-53; John 19:38-42. Mark 15:43 adds,

“… a reputable member of the Council, who also himself was waiting for the kingdom of God. He took courage to go in before Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.” Luke 23:50, 51 adds, “a man named Joseph, who was a member of the Council, a good and righteous man – this [man] had not voted in support of their design and action.” John 19:38 adds, “a disciple of Jesus but a secret one out of [his] fear of the Jews.”

[3] Pilate gave the command: Mark 15:44, 45 adds, “Pilate wondered whether he was already dead, and, summoning the army officer, he asked him whether he had already died. So after making certain from the army officer, he granted the corpse to Joseph.”

[4] Joseph wrapped it: John 19:39-41 adds, “Nicodemus also, the man that came to him in the night the first time, came bringing a roll of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds [of it]. So they took the body of Jesus and bound it up with bandages with the spices, just the way the Jews have the custom of preparing for burial. Incidentally, at the place where he was impaled there was a garden, and in the garden a new memorial tomb, in which no one had ever yet been laid.”

[5] A new memorium: The Greek is MNEMEIO. Or, NW: memorial tomb; KJV: new tomb; KNX: new grave; NEB: unused tomb.

Matthew 27:51-54 – Temple Curtain Torn in Earthquake

|| Mark 15:38, 39; Luke 23:47

MT27:51 Now the curtain of the Sanctuary was torn in two[1] from the top down. The earth was shaken and rocks were cracked open. MT27:52 The tombs were opened and many dead bodies of [ancient] saints were raised[2] and became visible. MT27:53 And persons left the tombs[3] and entered the holy city. MT27:54 But the centurion and those observing Jesus, having experienced the earthquake and the other things happening, became very frightened. They said, “Surely this person was a Son of God!”[4]

*

[1] Curtain of the Sanctuary was torn in two: Between the Most Holy and the Holy of Herod’s temple was a curtain protecting the inner sanctuary. The Greek for “sanctuary” (or, Divine Habitat) is NAOU (Research NAOS). Many see this as God’s judgment on the Temple while others see it pointing to the way to heaven being opened. Compare Hebrews 9:3 and Hebrews 10:20. Both Mark 15:38 and Luke 23:45 mention the event.

[2] Many dead bodies of [ancient] saints were raised: Or, KJV: the graves were opened; and many of the bodies of the saints which slept arose; BER: bodies of the buried saints arose. Note that neither Mark nor Luke mention this while recording the earthquake and rending of the Sanctuary curtain. Some understand this to refer to a resurrection of the godly men of old. Nothing is reported elsewhere on such an idea. It is more likely that the earthquake cracked open ancient rock tombs spilling and exposing the dead. Jesus is described as “the firstborn of the dead” and he was yet to be resurrected Sunday morning (Colossians 1:18; Revelation 1:5). Compare 1 Corinthians 15:20-23.

[3] Persons left the tombs: Part of the crowd of pilgrims trying to get back into Jerusalem before the Sabbath began at sundown. Luke 23:48 adds, “And all the crowds that were gathered together there for this spectacle, when they beheld the things that occurred, began to return (to Jerusalem).” As these persons returned they observed the corpses exposed by the earthquake.

[4] A Son of God: The Greek is THEOU HUIOS or NASB: a Son of God. Luke 23:47 adds, “The army officer began to glorify God, saying: ‘Really this man was righteous.’”

Matthew 23:29-32 – Woe 7: The Only Good Prophet Is a Dead Prophet!

|| Luke 11:47, 48

MT23:29 “WOE to you hypocritical Scribes and Pharisees because you build the graves of the prophets and decorate the memoriums[1] of the righteous. MT23:30 You also claim, ‘If we had lived in the days of our forefathers we would never have been guilty of the blood-letting of the prophets.’ MT23:31 So you provide evidence against yourself that your are sons of those who murdered the prophets. MT23:32 Now, live up to the example your forefathers![2]

*

[1] Memoriums: The Greek is MNEMEIA from which “memory” is drawn. Or, RSV: adorn the monuments of the righteous; NEB: embellish the monuments of the saints.

[2] Live up to the example your forefathers: Or, KJV: fill ye up then the measure of your fathers; NEB: finish off what your fathers began; WMS: fill up to the brim the cup of your forefather’s guilt. Jesus urges them on to what he has predicted earlier: suffering at their hands and then death.
