Matthew 27:52; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose.
Only Matthew recorded this amazing event. The earthquake had apparently rolled the stones away from many of the graves in the vicinity of Jerusalem, and some of the saints buried there arose from the dead. Even at the death of Jesus, such power was released that death lost its power on its captives.
After the resurrection of Jesus, these saints came out of their graves, went into Jerusalem, and appeared to many people. (V. 53;) The resurrection of Jesus puts Christianity in a class all by itself. Only Jesus conquered death, this makes Him unique and elevates Him above any other man who has ever walked the earth.
Jesus’ conquer has removed the fear and the sting of death from us and gave us the victory! We all have to say good-bye to love ones who pass from this life into the next, and we grieve for a little while; but death has lost its power over us and our grief passes quickly.
Unbelievers have no hope to see their love ones again, so they grief deeply and sometimes never stop grieving. We are different because we have a great hope:the certainty of seeing our loved ones again and being with them and the Lord for all eternity.
Have a Blessed day
