Matthew 17:1-9 and 2 Peter 1:16-21, Peter’s Mountaintop Experience

Peter writes in his Epistle, concerning an amazing incident which he experienced along with James and John on the Mount of Transfiguration. Can you imagine Peter’s feeling as he stood there on the Mount of Transfiguration with James and John as witnesses to one of the most dramatic scenes in history? Can you put yourself into Simon Peter’s sandals for a moment?

You should know that scholars debate the historicity of the scene on the Mount of Transfiguration. Was it a dream or was it reality? You and I cannot know. We were not there. We have only Simon Peter’s testimony. He reports that he and his two fellow disciples beheld the majesty of Christ. They saw the Master in the company of Moses and Elijah. They heard a voice from Heaven saying, “This is my Son in whom I am well pleased. Hear him.” Simon Peter knew what it was to stand on holy ground. He had affirmed there what he already believed about Jesus of Nazareth – that he was the Christ. And he discovered what real ministry was all about – not the mountaintop, but the valley was where real ministry took place. IL-WOONG.
