CHAPTER NINE:
TRANSFIGURATION, FAITH, GREATNESS,
AND STUMBLING

[“Glory and Greatness”]
Key word: Humility

Mark 9:1-8 – The Transfiguration

|| Matthew 17:1-8;[1] Luke 9:28-36

MK9:1 Now Jesus said to them: “I tell you this truth: Some of you standing here will not experience death[2] until you have seen God’s Kingdom already ruling.”[3] MK9:2 Six days later Jesus took Peter, James and John[4] with him and lead them up into a lofty mountain where they were alone. Then he was transfigured[5] before them, MK9:3 and his garments became dazzling white like snow, whiter than any human clothes cleaner could ever make them. MK9:4 Then they saw Elijah appear with Moses[6] and they were talking with Jesus. MK9:5 Now Peter responded and asked Jesus: “Rabbi, it is outstanding we are all here together! Let us put up three tents – one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah!” MK9:6 For Peter had no idea what to say for they were all so frightened. MK9:7 Then a cloud came and overshadowed them. And a Voice came from the cloud, saying: “This is my beloved Son![7] Listen to him!”[8] MK9:8 And then suddenly when they looked around they saw no one but Jesus alone with them.

[1] Matthew 17:1-8: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] Some of you standing here will not experience death: That is, will still be alive when.

[3] Until you have seen God’s Kingdom already ruling: These disciples would still be living when Christ begins his rule in fulfillment to Psalm 2:6, Psalm 110:1, and Daniel 7:13. Christ begins his rule upon his ascension to heaven in the year 33 AD. [1 Corinthians 15:24; Ephesians 1:19-22] Compare notes on Matthew 16:28 and Acts 13:33.

[4] Peter, James and John: It is the taking of these three that may later bring up the issue of “who is the greatest.” See notes below.

[5] Transfigured: Or, changed. The Greek is METAMORPHOTHE.

[6] Elijah appear with Moses: Many see these two as representing the Prophets and the Law respectively and their fulfillment in Christ. Others carry it further. See notes on Revelation 11:4-6.

[7] Son: That is, the created and begotten son of Proverbs 8:22-30. Elijah and Moses are not living beings here, for in Matthew it is called a “vision.”

[8] Listen to him: Or, hear, obey. This is the real purpose behind the whole transfiguration vision – to confirm to these three apostles the Sonship of Christ and God’s approval of him. The language echoes Psalm 2:6.
