As He Said (Matthew 28:1–20)

On the first day of the week, the Lord Jesus rose from the dead, leaving behind his grave clothes in an empty tomb. This sealed the good news of the gospel that, indeed, God’s work of the redemption of his people was finished by Jesus’ sacrificial and substitutionary death on the cross. However, on that initial Lord’s Day of the new covenant era, the early believers had lost sight of Jesus’ promise that he would rise from the dead, “as he said.” Too often, we also lose sight of the promises of our risen Lord. Matthew 28 reminds us that he is risen and how this should daily influence us. We will study this chapter under four headings: 1. A Grave Expectation (v. 1) 2. A Graced Experience (vv. 2–10) 3. A Guarded Explanation (vv. 11–15) 4. A Great Expectation (vv. 16–20)
