Matthew Lesson 29 Day 2

Matthew 28:1-10

3. a.  Jesus resurrected on the first day of the week, Sunday.

(see Mark 16:1-8 and Luke 24:1-8)

Jesus’ body remained at rest on Saturday, the Sabbath.

On the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Joses were the first to arrive at the tomb.

Before they arrived, the ground shook, an angel rolled the stone away and terrified the guards.

According to Mark 16:3-4, Mary and Mary were unaware the stone had been rolled away. They were wondering how to deal with a problem that the Lord had already solved.


4. a. Do not be afraid.

The angel spoke the standard greeting when appearing to a human, “Do not be afraid.” They basically mean, “Don’t freak out.”

b. The women were terrified because two men in shining white robes suddenly appeared in front of them. Their reaction seems to be the standard. It would certainly be mine.

c. When the women encountered Jesus, they bowed down, took hold of His feet, and worshiped Him. What an amazing encounter. They went to His tomb to mourn, saw angels who said He is alive, then moments later He greets them.

Jesus instructed the women to go tell the disciples, whom He lovingly called His brothers, to meet Him in Galilee.

  1. There have been moments where God’s presence is tangibly near and other times when He seems far away. When I’m not “feeling it” I remind myself of His promise— “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
