INCORRUPT BODIES OF THE SAINTS

Most of us are aware of the awesome event of the Resurrection of our Lord.

But, many do not know of a strange event that occurred at the time of the death, then Resurrection of Jesus.

Let's look into this strange occurrence, shall we?

INCORRUPT BODIES OF THE SAINTS STUDY ON INCORRUPT BODIES OF THE SAINTS VERSES WITH INCORRUPT BODIES OF THE SAINTS MESSAGE

Matthew 27:50-51
Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 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
...

 

Now This is saying that at the death of Jesus, the stones that enclosed the sepulchres were knocked down and/or broken.

It appears that other stones to other graves or burial tombs were removed or "rent" by an earthquake as well according to the next verses.
 

Matthew 27:52-53
And the graves were opened; and many BODIES of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves AFTER His (Jesus') Resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. That is 3 days after His death when the rocks were rent.


Just as Jesus' stone was rolled away ...

Tho an angel moved our Lord's stone:
 

Matthew 28:2
And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from Heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.


We must remember that the burial procedure of the Israelites is diff than modern day ... Unlike today where most bury those who pass from this realm to the next in the ground, they buried their dead in sepulchers and had a large stone cover the tomb.

We are told that the bodies of SAINTS exited the tombs and appeared unto many AFTER the resurrection of Jesus.  

WHAT DOES INCORRUPT BODIES OF THE SAINTS MEAN AND HOW DOES INCORRUPT BODIES OF THE SAINTS AFFECT CHRISTIANS?


Now, let's try and get a visual of this extraordinary event ...

Are we to imagine decomposed bodies exited these tombs after many years of being in there and walked around like zombies or maybe in the linen that they are wrapped in at death making em appear as a mummy?

 

Nehhhhhhhhh sounds more like a horror movie ...


Sooooooo ... That don't seem like what occurred.
 

Did they have a physical body or like Jesus, a different body as He told Mary:
 

John 20:17
Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

But, later told Thomas to stick his fingers into His wounds.

John 20:27
Then saith He to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

 

Hmmmmmm, I wonder ...

Now, there is also the Lazarus theory ... This theory suggests that these Saints were brought back to life, just as Lazarus was.
 

John 11:43-44
And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.


Were these Saints brought back to life as Lazarus was?

Hmmmmmm, Interesting.

What did these people see?

Were these Saints ... In spirit form or humans in physical form?


Another question ...  Since these were Saints of the past, how were they recognized as being those past Saints by modern day people?

Cameras were not invented yet.

Maybe statues were made of the Saints and they recognized em, huh?
 

INCORRUPT BODIES OF THE SAINTS TRUTH

Nehhhhhhh, just does not sit well.

How do we explain how these people who saw these bodies of past Saints, knew it was past Saints? 

 

Some suggest that they were recently deceased Saints and that is how they were recognized.

Like John the Baptist, who had recently had his head removed by King Herod.

 

Still others believe that these were Saints who were resurrected as the firstfruits of Jesus at His own Resurrection.

 

But, it seems they would have ascended with Him when He rose to Heaven, but we know they were NOT there ...

He alone ascended.
 

Acts 1:9
And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight.

 

And what about this Scripture which shares that NO MAN ascended to Heaven ...

ONLY Jesus.
 

John 3:13
And NO MAN HATH ASCENDED UP TO HEAVEN, but He that came down from Heaven, even the Son of man (Jesus) which is in Heaven.

 

No, these Saints were not spoken of again after ...

We know only that they showed up and were seen of many.

 

Which brings up the Samuel theory ...

Maybe these Saints were in spirit form, but appeared to many and had the appearance of human form.

 

Saul had Samuel brought up from His REST by a woman with a familiar spirit (a spirit that acts as an assistant to a witch or wizard) ...

 

1 Samuel 28:7-20
Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor. And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee. And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die? And Saul sware to her by the LORD, saying, As the LORD liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing. Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, Bring me up Samuel. And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul. And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground, and bowed himself. And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do. Then said Samuel, Wherefore then dost thou ask of me, seeing the LORD is departed from thee, and is become thine enemy? And the LORD hath done to him, as he spake by me: for the LORD hath rent the kingdom out of thine hand, and given it to thy neighbour, even to David: Because thou obeyedst not the voice of the LORD, nor executedst his fierce wrath upon Amalek, therefore hath the LORD done this thing unto thee this day. Moreover the LORD will also deliver Israel with thee into the hand of the Philistines: and to morrow shalt thou and thy sons be with me: the LORD also shall deliver the host of Israel into the hand of the Philistines. Then Saul fell straightway all along on the earth, and was sore afraid, because of the words of Samuel: and there was no strength in him; for he had eaten no bread all the day, nor all the night.


 

Were these bodies the SOULS of these Saints that appeared unto many and then returned to Abraham's Bosom?

LEARN MORE OF THIS BY READING THE ABRAHAM'S BOSOM STUDY.

 

Sooooooooooooooo, as you can see ...

There are too many possibilities to properly assess this event without more information which is NOT available in the Bible, so one would only be giving a theory to attempt to explain this accurately.
 

UNLESS GOD FOUND IT NECESSARY TO EXPLAIN IT.

 

This happens at times ... We read something and are unable to explain it to ourselves, because the Bible does not give further details.

Perhaps it is to be yet another Mystery of God.

Despite the reasoning for the Bible not sharing what form these Saints were in or what happened to these Saints after they appeared ...

Let us never allow the inability to reason out something that we read in God's Word ... Shake our Faith, as the earthquake did the tombs of these Saints.

 

We are NOT God ...

We are to carry on in FAITH.
