Matthew 27


 
Matthew 27 - Kenites Crucified Jesus
 
 The Book of Matthew, The Structure of The Book As A Whole   Hebrews 6
 
Matthew 27:1 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:
  • The nice religious leaders of the community were plotting to murder Jesus Christ.
2 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
  • Matthew 26:15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
  • Judas thought the Kingdom had arrived, and he would make an outstanding treasurer.
  • He had the money bag.
4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
  • They could care less about the sin of Judas
  • They had what they wanted, and Judas was a dead man walking.
5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
  • We know from Acts 1 that Judas had some help.
  • They split him open from his adams apple to his navel.
  • They could not allow this man to live to later testify against them.
  • Judas just repented
  • Did Judas hang himself?
  • Acts 1:18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
  • You cannot hang yourself and cut open your body from your neck to abdomen
  • The kenites would not let him live for they knew he would tell what happen.
  • His account of Judas' death varies in three points from that given by Matthew
  • 1. Evidently Judas did not hang himself, he was cut open from his neck to his abdomen
  • 2. Judas is spoken of as purchasing the field, for the priests bought it with his money, so that legally it was his purchase.
  • 3. The field was called "The field of blood" verse 8
  • What was the witness of Jesus?
6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
  • The chief priests knew it was blood money
7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in.
  • Potter's field was for poor people
  • Prophecy was being fulfilled. The thirty pieces of silver was utilized to purchase a place where the broken hearted could be buried.
  • Why? The blood of Christ was able to put the broken potsherds back together.
  • The witness to Pilate, and us, was prophecy, was being fulfilled.
8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.

9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;
  • Spoken, Not "written", either by Jeremiah or Zechariah, but "spoken" by Jeremiah.
  • Jeremy, The words here quoted are not found in Jeremiah, but in Zechariah; and a variety of conjectures have been formed, in order to reconcile this discrepancy.
  • Zechariah 11:And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.
    11 And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD
  • 12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
    13 And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was praised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.
  • By = by means of, or by the mouth of
  • Jeremy = Jeremiah
  • Children = sons
  • Potter was the price for Christ
  • Clay = you are the clay
10 And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me.
  • The prophecy of the Lord through Jeremiah had come to pass.
  • Jesus was betrayed for the price of a slave.
  • And the thirty pieces of silver would purchase the potter's field.
11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.
  • Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.
  • The fact that Jesus said nothing was a great witness.
  • Many scriptures were being fulfilled by these actions
  • Jesus is also letting us know to beware of those who are falsely called.
  • These people were called religious leaders.
  • They were plotting the murder of Jesus Christ.
  • Learn to discern the action motives of others.
  • You can't always depend on others based on what they are called.
12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
  • Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
  • Isaiah 53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?

14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.

15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.

16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.

28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
  • They said this.
  • Jesus is King over All people
30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.

31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.

32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
  • Golgotha = Nothing is said about a "green hill". But an elevation, which we speak of as being a "head", "shoulder", or "neck". The Latin is calvaria = a skull = English =  Calvary
34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
  • Vinegar = poor man's vine
35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
  • Psalm 22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
  • Psalms 22 was written over 1000 years before Christ Was Crucified On The Cross
36 And sitting down they watched him there;

37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
  • Isaiah 53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and He bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
  • Mocking Him
40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
  • He talking about the many member body, Christ went back and preached to those that pass before they crucified Him. 
  • 1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
    19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
  • Who mocked Him?
  •  The chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders
  • Revelation 2:9  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
  • Bible study the kenites
42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.

45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
  • Until noon to 3 pm
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
  • Jesus never called His Father God, He always called Him Father
  • Jesus quoted Psalms 22:1 the scripture would be fulfilled
  • This was written in Psalms 22, 1,000 years before it happen.
  • Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani was fortold of back in Psalms 22. Jesus quoted Psalms 22:1 the scripture would be fulfilled.
  • Psalms 22:1 To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David. My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
    2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
    3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
    4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.

48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.

50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the spirit.

51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

55 And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:

56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children.

57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus disciple:
  • Joseph was Jesus uncle, Mary brother
58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.

59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
  • Joseph was Jesus uncle, Mary brother
  • Isaiah 53:9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.

61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.

62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,

63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.

64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.

65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.

66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
