Matthew

The Gates of Hell

Peter the 'rock': What's in a name?

TEXT: MATTHEW 16:18

In the passage above, we see three things are going on. We see Jesus talking about the church, Simon's name is changed to "Peter" and Jesus talks about the effect that the church will have on something called the "gates of hell".

So, yes, this is a three-parter, so it will be easier to read.

We have already taken care of the "gates of hell" part HERE (please click). And we'll take care of the charge of the church later.

Resurrection of Jesus

TEXT: Matthew 28:1-20

The chief priests and Pharisees of Matthew 27:62-66 have sent Pilate's soldiers to watch the tomb of Jesus. Despite that, Jesus was resurrected on the other side of the stone that blocked the entrance to His tomb as the guards stood watch, and there was nothing the Roman guards, scribes or Pharisees could do to stop that resurrection.

Burial of Jesus

TEXT: MATTHEW 27:57-66

Matthew divides the burial into two parts: The wrapping of Jesus' body and placement into a tomb, and the setting of a Roman guard by the tomb to watch for body snatchers.
