THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE - Chapter 24 - Verse 16

Verse 16. Their eyes were holden. This expression is used merely to denote that they did not know who he was. It does not appear that there was anything supernatural or miraculous in it, or that God used any power to blind them. It may easily be accounted for without any such supposition; for,

1st. Jesus appeared in another form (Mr 16:12)—that is, different from his usual appearance.

2nd. They were not expecting to see him—indeed, they did not suppose that he was alive and it required the strongest evidence to convince them that he was really risen from the dead.

{i} "holden" Joh 20:14,15; 21:4
