A glorified bodily resurrection in Matthew 27:51b-53? A close reading of the text. Matthew 27:51 b-53 is a crux interpretum in the exegesis of the Matthew text. By comparing the semantic domains of lexical items and by determining the subtle distinctions between closely related words, the article takes a close look at the reading of this text. The text is interpreted within its narrative context against the background of the apostolic preaching tradition. Following these exegetical lines, the article makes the point that the resurrection of the saints in Matthew 27:51b-53 is to be understood as a glorified bodily resurrection.
