“Hypocrites!”

April 14, 2017

 

Matthew 27: 66:  “And they went and made the grave secure, and along with the guard they set a seal on the stone.”  Remember one of the big problems the chief priests and Pharisees had with Jesus was that he was, in their eyes, working on the Sabbath. (John 9: 16, among many others) And yet here, on “the day after the preparation”, i.e., the Sabbath (v. 62), they are working to try to keep Jesus in the tomb.  But unlike Jesus, their violation of the Sabbath was in vain, for their human efforts could not stop the plan of God.  Resurrection and redemption was coming, whether they liked it or not!
