CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
See this passage explained in the notes at Matthew 26:3-16.

It is remarkable that none who have been restored to life from the dead have made any communications respecting that world. See Luke 16:31, and the notes at 2 Corinthians 12:4.

But the Lord answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things;
