Matthew 27: 50-53 50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit.

51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. 52 The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen


"The story in Matthew 27:50-53 invites many questions such as, “Who are these people, great saints of the past or recent times?” and, “Did they rise to the age they had at death or were they restored to perfect youth and vigor?” Many people ask, “Did they die again, soon perhaps, or did they ascend to heaven?” or “What if anything, did they say to people they met?” Matthew doesn’t answer these questions, but he does make one point, which is Jesus’ death crushes the power of death." from the article: What Is the Meaning of Those Who Were Raised to Life at Jesus’ Death?
