So Many God Stories in Matthew 27

So Many Wonderful, Intriguing God Stories in Matthew 27

I love stories about God’s intervention in people’s lives, whether dramatic or simple. 

I imagine we’ll hear some wonderful stories in heaven. 

For example:

1. Did Pilate’s wife, who had a dream about Christ’s innocence, later give her life to Him? Matthew 27:19

2. How many who yelled “Crucify Him! His blood is on us and on our children!” later were saved by that precious blood? Matthew 27:25

3. How many soldiers who fell to their knees mocking Jesus later fell to their knees proclaiming Him Savior? Matthew 27:29 

4. How many who beat and crucified Christ later were healed by His stripes and forgiven by His crucifixion? Verse 54 gives a hint.

5. Barabbas was pardoned instead of Christ. Did he ever accept Christ's eternal pardon? Matthew 27:16-26

6. Simon of Cyrene took up Christ’s cross and followed Him on the road to Golgotha. Did he ever take up his Cross and follow Christ spiritually? Matthew 27:32

A single day in history, a single chapter in Scripture, and so many God stories that will one day thrill our hearts.

  1. Simon of Cyrene almost certainly became a Christian. Paul mentions his son Rufus and Rufus'e mother as a mother to him. I think it is in Romans.
