Bible commentary

Discussion for Luke 9:27

  • I read online that in 3 of the Gospels, Jesus' words were followed by the transfiguration. Before I read this, I re-read the Bible's previous veres to read of how many of his disciples to whom he spoke. I thought perhaps he meant that seeing the kingdom of God referred to his death (and immediate ensuing events) applied to some, but not all, of the disciples. In this case, I thought he meant at least 1 disciple-Judas- would not live to see the kingdom of God.I have not done much reading about it , which is why I did an online search.
