Matthew 28

Introduction

Overview

Matthew 28:1, Christ’s resurrection is declared by an angel to the women; Matthew 28:9, He himself appears unto them; Matthew 28:11, The chief priests give the soldiers money to say that he was stolen out of his sepulchre; Matthew 28:16, Christ appears to his disciples, Matthew 28:18. and sends them to baptize and teach all nations.

Verse 1

the end: The Hebrew word Schabbath from which our English word is derived, signifies rest, and is applied to all solemn festivals, equally with that one day of every week devoted to the worship of God; Ezekiel 20:21, "they polluted my sabbaths." Three evangelists say, the transaction recorded in this verse, occurred upon the first day of the week, early in the morning, about sunrising, and John says, while it was yet dark. רו [Strong's G3796], ףבגגבפשם [Strong's G4521], does not signify "in the evening of sabbath," but "sabbaths." Hence, the great feast having been concluded, the term "end of the sabbaths" denotes the time very clearly. Again, it may be observed that the Jews, speaking of their passover, sometimes speak according to their civil computation, wherein they measured their days from sun-rising to sun-rising. Sometimes according to their sacred computation, which was from sun-set to sun-set. This reconciles Numbers 28:18, which seems to make the fourteenth day of the first month, the first day of unleavened bread.
