The Guard at the Tomb

Scripture

Matthew 27:62-66

Commentary

It is quite interesting that the Pharisees understood that Jesus had predicted He would rise from the dead in three days.  His followers did not understand this but the Pharisees wanted to prevent it.

Even though the Pharisees understood what Jesus had said, they certainly didn't believe it.  They feared that the disciples would spread a lie that Jesus had risen from the dead but it was in fact they who would spread a lie that the disciples had stolen the body. 

Despite the guards, nothing could stop God's plan from reaching fulfillment.  Jesus would rise from the dead just as He said.  Even after this, the Pharisees would not acknowledge what had happened.
