People's Bible Notes for Matthew 17:1


Mt 17:1 The Transfiguration SUMMARY OF MATTHEW 17: The Transfigured Lord. Moses and Elias. The Voice from the Cloud. The Lunatic Healed. The Son of Man to Be Betrayed. Slain and Raised the Third Day. The Tribute Money. And after six days. Compare Mr 9:2-8 Lu 9:28-36 Joh 1:14 2Pe 1:18. Six days after the conversation recorded in the last chapter. Luke says, "about an eight days" (Lu 9:28). "About", not exactly. Luke's "eight days" include the fractional days at the beginning and end of the day of the conversation and the day of transfiguration. Matthew's "six days" are the six complete days intervening between them. Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John. The three apostles who were chosen to be nearest to the Lord. Into an high mountain. Not Mt. Tabor, for, as we learn from Josephus, who lived in that time, the top of Mt. Tabor was then occupied by a town and fortress. On the other hand, the Lord was in the vicinity of Mt. Hermon. See PNT "Mt 16:13". Hermon was a "high mountain", ten thousand feet high, visible over most of Palestine.
