Matthew 27:45–55 CSB
45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over the whole land. 46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out with a loud voice, Elí, Elí, lemá sabachtháni?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” 47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling for Elijah.” 48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge, filled it with sour wine, put it on a stick, and offered him a drink. 49 But the rest said, “Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.” 50 But Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and gave up his spirit. 51 Suddenly, the curtain of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom, the earth quaked, and the rocks were split. 52 The tombs were also opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. 53 And they came out of the tombs after his resurrection, entered the holy city, and appeared to many. 54 When the centurion and those with him, who were keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they were terrified and said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” 55 Many women who had followed Jesus from Galilee and looked after him were there, watching from a distance.
Introduction
Matthew 27:45 CSB
45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over the whole land.
The sixith hour was noon and thus the time of the crusifixion. The triel, scourgeing, and mocking would have taken the entire morning. This darkeness was lickly a direct sign from God as his displesure of the earth.
Darkness came over the whole land—represents divine disfavor over the imminenet death of rhe messiah. The Greek text says the darkness lasted from the sixth hour to the ninth hour the first hour was six am so the darkness lasted from noon until 3
Jesus hung on the cross from midday until midafternoon. As he does so, darkness covers the Land.
Tis was not an ecclips of the sun because the moon is full at the time of the passover. this event was predicted in Amous 8:9
This darkness signalls Gods Judgement on Isriel for rejecting the Missiah
Amos 8:9 CSB
9 And in that day— this is the declaration of the Lord God I will make the sun go down at noon; I will darken the land in the daytime.
Amos 8:9
Matthew 24:29 ESV
29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
Matthew 27:46 ESV
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
Matthew 27:46 CSB
46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out with a loud voice, Elí, Elí, lemá sabachtháni?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”
the term cried out indicates powerful emotion or appeal to GOd. THis is the onlt time in the gospels where Jesus addresses God without calling him father.
This is something you and I will never have to deal with, God will never turn his back on the believer.
three in the afternoon would have been the ninth hour
Jesus quoted
At this moment the entire weight of the entire worlds sin fell upon Jesues. it was at his moment that he who knew no sin was made sin for us
At this moment the entire weight of the entire worlds sin fell upon Jesues. it was at his moment that he who knew no sin was made sin for us
2 Corinthians 5:21 CSB
21 He made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
1
and the sin he bore for us involced the seperation from God that sin Brings.
it must be noted that having the worlds sin cast upon him did not resault in Christ sinning.
As we go throughlife there are times we may feel that God has forgotten us, however for the christian he never turns his back he never forgets his eye is on the sparrow. But he completly turned his back on his own son.
Psalm 22:1 CSB
1 My God, my God, why have you abandoned me? Why are you so far from my deliverance and from my words of groaning?
Matthew 27:47 ESV
47 And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, “This man is calling Elijah.”
Matthew 27:47 CSB
47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling for Elijah.”
The Hebrew word for God is Eloi and the bistanders think that Jesus was calling for Eleija. †he Jews expected Elijh to appear at the end of the age, or to help in a time of need.
Matthew 27:48 ESV
48 And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine, and put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink.
Matthew 27:48 CSB
48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge, filled it with sour wine, put it on a stick, and offered him a drink.
Matt 27:
Someone gave a drink of wine and vinigar, and was soaked into a sponge. this drink was common, and may have been provided by the soldiers
Psalm 69:21 ESV
21 They gave me poison for food, and for my thirst they gave me sour wine to drink.
Matthew 27:49 ESV
49 But the others said, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.”
Matthew 27:49 CSB
49 But the rest said, “Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”
The idea here is some standing around saying “Stop don’t give him to drink, let us see if Elija comes to save Him”
The fact that some thought he was Elija indicates that they were Jews.
Matthew 27:50 ESV
50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit.
Matthew 27:50 CSB
50 But Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and gave up his spirit.
Jesues cried with one last cry and died
states
By the fact that He gave up his spirit we can know that even death inself is under the Sovrign control of Christ.
It litterally means dismissed his spirit this was an act of choice,
the term yeilded up or gave up indicates a diliberate act of will something that can be seen even clearer in
Luke 23:46 ESV
46 Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last.
He did not just simply die he comended his spirit to God.
John 19:30 CSB
30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished.” Then bowing his head, he gave up his spirit.
Mat
Matthew 27:51 ESV
51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.
Matthew 27:51 ESV
51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.
The moment Jesues died the earth shoke with a mighty earthquake where the temple curtin was torn from top to bottom
Matthew used this earthquake to show the bighty power of God. death itself is being conquered and a new age of eternal life is beginning.
unrestricted acsess to God was now availibe
In the Old testement an earthquake symbolized God’s mighty acts . The puropse was more than just to show God’s power, but also to open graves.
Matthew 27:52 ESV
52 The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised,
Matthew 27:52 ESV
52 The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised,
many of the OT saints raised from thier graves. Many see those rised.
Matthew 27:53 ESV
53 and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
Matthew 27:53 ESV
53 and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
Matthew says they appeared unto many, Gentils, Jews, people that have known Jesues, and people who have not herd his name until this day.
The raising of the saints was a precuse to the reserection of Christ showing the power of God.
Matthew 27:54 ESV
54 When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!”
Matt 27:
The puropse for apearing to many was so there would be undenyable evedince of thier reserection first, and through it thier Lords.
Matthew 27:54 ESV
54 When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!”
The centurian and those under his comand are now terified, they herd the jews mock Jesues as the son of God, but they were now convinced that He accually was.
THis conclusion seems to base itself on the previous events
The authority of God’s sonship was utterd by a pagon Soldier.
The Centurien had seen many things including:
-Christ as he hung on the cross
-the trials
-He herd him ask forgivness for those who crusified him
-the promice to the repentent theif
-the word of provision for his earthly mother
-His cry My God My God why hast thou forsaken me.
-He saw Jesues look down and say I thurst
-Comend his spirit
-All the events that imediately followd his death.
