Matthew 28:1 Commentary - Abbott's Illustrated New TestamentVerse 1
As it began to dawn; that is, as it was growing light, for Mark 16:2 says that it was about sunrise;--unless, in fact, there were two several parties to the sepulchre, as has sometimes been supposed. There were several others besides the two named here, who visited the sepulchre. (Luke 24:10.) They went to anoint the body. They had never understood the predictions which the Savior had uttered respecting his resurrection.
