Bible Commentary for Mark 9:5

Wesley's Notes for Mark 9:5


9:3 White as snow, such as no fuller can whiten - Such as could not be equalled either by nature or art.

9:4 Elijah - Whom they expected: Moses, whom they did not.

9:7 There came a (bright, luminous) cloud, overshadowing them - This seems to have been such a cloud of glory as accompanied Israel in the wilderness, which, as the Jewish writers observe, departed at the death of Moses. But it now appeared again, in honour of our Lord, as the great Prophet of the Church, who was prefigured by Moses. Hear ye him - Even preferably to Moses and Elijah.
