Question 54 - Did He not see by hearing or did He not hear by seeing?

Acts 9:7 NKJV - "And the men who journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice but seeing no one."
Acts 22:9 NKJV - ""And those who were with me indeed saw the light and were afraid, but they did not hear the voice of Him who spoke to me.".
Acts 26:14 NKJV - ""And when we all had fallen to the ground, I heard a voicespeaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.'"
                It is written in the Acts of Apostle 22:7-9 that those who journeyed with Saul saw the light and were afraid but they did not hear the voice of Jesus.
                It is written in the Acts of the Apostle 9:7 that the men who journeyed with Saul stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no one.
                We need to grasp the divine truth which is hid in these verses.
                When we are talking to any one secretly, we think that these conversations, which were conversed with other person secretly, cannot be heard by third person. At that time, we have no knowledge that third person is hearing.
                Saul thought that the voice spoke to him. He thought that he was the only one, who heard the voice.  So, he did not know that the remaining persons also heard this voice.
                When the Lord Jesus was incarnated, the angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them and informed to the all shepherd in the form of voice. But the wise men saw the light, but not heard the voice. But, they found the birth history of the Lord Christ through the light. But, why did the wise men not hear the voice? But, the figure, which the shepherd and wise men could see, was the Lord Christ only.

                Saul and those who were with him believed in the Lord Jesus. But, the Saul lost his vision by the light. There after he heard the voice of Jesus. Those, who were with him, did not lose their eyes. So, Saul imagines that those, who were with him, did not hear the voice. The one, who gave vision to wise men, shepherd, Saul, and those, who were there with him, was the Lord Christ only. That means he said, “I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting”.
