Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentMatthew 28:5
- Unto the women (taiv gunaixin).
- According to John, Mary Magdalene had left to go and tell Peter and John of the supposed grave robbery (John 20:1ff.). But the other women remained and had the interview with the angel (or men, Luke) about the empty tomb and the Risen Christ.
- Jesus the Crucified (Ihsoun ton estaurwmenon).
- Perfect passive participle, state of completion. This he will always be. So Paul will preach as essential to his gospel "and this one crucified" (kai touton estaurwmenon, 1 Corinthians 2:2).
