Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said to Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brothers…
If a man really saw an angel, or one "risen from the dead," we should expect that all consideration of bystanders would forsake him in the awe of the moment. And so, if in an instant a supernatural power opens the unseen world to the soul, with its one eternal Light, its heaven and its hell, although the view of these must be imperfect and confused, yet if it is a view, a sudden view, it must shoot fear, wonder, awe, through and through the soul, till man and man's opinion are as little thought of, as fashion by a woman fallen into a steamer's foaming wake.
(W. Arthur, M. A.)
