Richard Sibbes commented on this passage in his book, The Bruised Reed. He said of Jesus,

He died that he might heal our souls …and by that death save us… And has he not the same heart in heaven? ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’ cried the Head in heaven when the foot on earth was trodden on. His advancement has not made him forget his own flesh. Though it has freed him from passion, yet [it has not freed him] from compassion towards us.
