“He stood as a common person . . . “

For those who may be mourning a loss:

“He did at first conceal himself from her.  He stood as a common person, and she looked upon him accordingly.  She turned herself back from talking with angels and sees Jesus himself standing, and yet she knew not that it was Jesus. ‘The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart’ (Ps 34.18), nearer than they are aware.  Those that seek Christ, though they do not see Him, may yet be sure that he is not far from them.”  (Matthew Henry)
