Fear of Visionaries


Whenever there was a divine vision, we see the phrase, “Do not be afraid” in the Bible because of the fear of the visionaries. When the Risen Lord appeared to his apostles, despite their familiarity with Jesus, the sudden sight of the Lord terrified them (Lk 24:36). Other such instances include Abraham’s vision of God (Gen 15:1), Joshua’s vision (Josh 1:9), Daniel’s vision (Dan 10:12,19), the Angel Gabriel’s appearance to Zechariah (Lk 1:13), his appearance to Mary (Lk 1:30), and the angel announcing the birth of the Christ child to the shepherds (Lk 2:10).
