The True Glory of Jesus
(Matthew 17.1-13; Luke 9.28-36)
2 Six days later Jesus took Peter, James, and John with him. They went up on a high mountain, where they could be alone. There in front of the disciples, Jesus was completely changed.
9.2-7 2P 1.17,18.
2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
3 And his clothes became much whiter than any bleach on earth could make them. 3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
4 Then Moses and Elijah were there talking with Jesus. 4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
5 Peter said to Jesus, “Teacher, it is good for us to be here! Let us make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
6 But Peter and the others were terribly frightened, and he did not know what he was talking about. 6 For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.
7 The shadow of a cloud passed over and covered them. From the cloud a voice said, “This is my Son, and I love him. Listen to what he says!”
9.7 Mt 3.17; Mk 1.11; Lk 3.22.
7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
8 At once the disciples looked around, but they saw only Jesus. 8 And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.
9 As Jesus and his disciples were coming down the mountain, he told them not to say a word about what they had seen, until the Son of Man had been raised from death.
9 And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.
10 So they kept it to themselves. But they wondered what he meant by the words “raised from death.” 10 And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.
11 The disciples asked Jesus, “Don't the teachers of the Law of Moses say that Elijah must come before the Messiah does?”
9.11 Ml 4.5; Mt 11.14.
11 And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?
12 Jesus answered:
9.12 Si 48.10.
Elijah certainly will come
f 9.12 Elijah certainly will come: See the note at 6.15.
to get everything ready. But don't the Scriptures also say that the Son of Man must suffer terribly and be rejected?
12 And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.
13 I can assure you that Elijah has already come. And people treated him just as they wanted to, as the Scriptures say they would. 13 But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.
Jesus Heals a Boy
(Matthew 17.14-20; Luke 9.37-43a)
14 When Jesus and his three disciples came back down, they saw a large crowd around the other disciples. The teachers of the Law of Moses were arguing with them.
14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.
15 The crowd was really surprised to see Jesus, and everyone hurried over to greet him.
15 And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
16 Jesus asked, “What are you arguing about?”
16 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
with them: or, among yourselves
17 Someone from the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought my son to you. A demon keeps him from talking.
17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
18 Whenever the demon attacks my son, it throws him to the ground and makes him foam at the mouth and grit his teeth in pain. Then he becomes stiff. I asked your disciples to force out the demon, but they couldn't do it.” 18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
teareth...: or, dasheth him
19 Jesus said, “You people don't have any faith! How much longer must I be with you? Why do I have to put up with you? Bring the boy to me.”
19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
20 They brought the boy, and as soon as the demon saw Jesus, it made the boy shake all over. He fell down and began rolling on the ground and foaming at the mouth.
20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
21 Jesus asked the boy's father, “How long has he been like this?”
The man answered, “Ever since he was a child.
21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
22 The demon has often tried to kill him by throwing him into a fire or into water. Please have pity and help us if you can!” 22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
23 Jesus replied, “Why do you say ‘if you can’? Anything is possible for someone who has faith!”
23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
24 Right away the boy's father shouted, “I do have faith! Please help me to have even more.”
24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was gathering fast, he spoke sternly to the evil spirit that had kept the boy from speaking or hearing. He said, “I order you to come out of the boy! Don't ever bother him again.”
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
26 The spirit screamed and made the boy shake all over. Then it went out of him. The boy looked dead, and almost everyone said he was.
26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
27 But Jesus took hold of his hand and helped him stand up. 27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
28 After Jesus and the disciples had gone back home and were alone, they asked him, “Why couldn't we force out that demon?”
28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
29 Jesus answered, “Only prayer can force out that kind of demon.”
29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
Jesus Again Speaks about His Death
(Matthew 17.22,23; Luke 9.43b-45)
30 Jesus left with his disciples and started through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know about it,
30 And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.
31 because he was teaching the disciples that the Son of Man would be handed over to people who would kill him. But three days later he would rise to life. 31 For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.
32 The disciples did not understand what Jesus meant, and they were afraid to ask. 32 But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.
Who Is the Greatest?
(Matthew 18.1-5; Luke 9.46-48)
33 Jesus and his disciples went to his home in Capernaum. After they were inside the house, Jesus asked them, “What were you arguing about along the way?”
33 And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?
34 They had been arguing about which one of them was the greatest, and so they did not answer.
9.34 Lk 22.24.
34 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.
35 After Jesus sat down and told the twelve disciples to gather around him, he said, “If you want the place of honor, you must become a slave and serve others!”
9.35 Mt 20.26
35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.
36 Then Jesus had a child stand near him. He put his arm around the child and said,
36 And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,
37 “When you welcome even a child because of me, you welcome me. And when you welcome me, you welcome the one who sent me.”
9.37 Mt 10.40; Lk 10.16; Jn 13.20.
37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
For or against Jesus
(Luke 9.49,50)
38 John said, “Teacher, we saw a man using your name to force demons out of people. But he wasn't one of us, and we told him to stop.”
38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.
39 Jesus said to his disciples:
Don't stop him! No one who works miracles in my name will soon turn and say something bad about me.
39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
40 Anyone who isn't against us is for us.
9.40 Mt 12.30; Lk 11.23.
40 For he that is not against us is on our part.
41 And anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name, just because you belong to me, will surely be rewarded.
9.41 Mt 10.42.
41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
Temptations To Sin
(Matthew 18.6-9; Luke 17.1,2)
42 It will be terrible for people who cause even one of my little followers to sin. Those people would be better off thrown into the ocean with a heavy stone tied around their necks.
42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
43-44 So if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off! You would be better off to go into life crippled than to have two hands and be thrown into the fires of hell that never go out.
g 9.43,44 never go out: Some manuscripts add, “The worms there never die, and the fire never stops burning.”
9.43,44 Mt 5.30.
43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
offend...: or, cause thee to offend
45-46 If your foot causes you to sin, chop it off. You would be better off to go into life lame than to have two feet and be thrown into hell.
h 9.45,46 thrown into hell: Some manuscripts add, “The worms there never die, and the fire never stops burning.”
45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
offend...: or, cause thee to offend
47 If your eye causes you to sin, get rid of it. You would be better off to go into God's kingdom with only one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell.
9.47 Mt 5.29.
47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
offend...: or, cause thee to offend
48 The worms there never die, and the fire never stops burning.
9.48 Is 66.24.
48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
49 Everyone must be salted with fire.
i 9.49 salted with fire: Some manuscripts add “and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt.” The verse may mean that Christ's followers must suffer because of their faith.
49 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
50 Salt is good. But if it no longer tastes like salt, how can it be made salty again? Have salt among you and live at peace with each other.
j 9.50 Have salt among you and live at peace with each other: This may mean that when Christ's followers have to suffer because of their faith, they must still try to live at peace with each other.
9.50 Mt 5.13; Lk 14.34
50 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
