Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 27:56

_ _ Among which was Mary Magdalene — (See on Luke 8:2).

_ _ and Mary the mother of James and Joses — the wife of Cleophas, or rather Clopas, and sister of the Virgin (John 19:25). See on Matthew 13:55, Matthew 13:56.

_ _ and the mother of Zebedee’s children — that is, Salome: compare Mark 15:40. All this about the women is mentioned for the sake of what is afterwards to be related of their purchasing spices to anoint their Lord’s body.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 27:50-56.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 27:56

James — The less: he was so called, to distinguish him from the other James, the brother of John; probably because he was less in stature.
