Luke 9:27-36

Commentary on Luke 9:28-36 From The People's New Testament, B.W. Johnson, 1891.

"Luke adds the fact that the Lord went into the mountain to pray; that as he prayed, he was transfigured; that the fashion of his countenance was altered; that the theme of conversation with Moses and Elias was the Lord's decease; that the apostles were awake when they saw the vision; that they told no man in those days, even as Jesus directed."

28-36. About an eight days after. See notes on Matt. 17:1-9, for the Transfiguration. Also Mark 9:1-8. Luke adds the fact that the Lord went into the mountain to pray; that as he prayed, he was transfigured; that the fashion of his countenance was altered; that the theme of conversation with Moses and Elias was the Lord's decease; that the apostles were awake when they saw the vision; that they told no man in those days, even as Jesus directed (Matthew). They kept it close. Until after the death and resurrection of the Lord.
