    “Peter is the original meme – “hold my beer and watch this!””

    Lol!

    Thanks for the notes MLD. Lots to ponder here.

    Very Good!

  3. JoelG says:

    I wonder why Peter, James and John were in the “inner circle”. What was it about them that Jesus considered them to be closest to Him?

    Thanks for another great study MLD!

  5. John 20:29 says:

    i am going to be very disappointed if the two witnesses that cannot be silenced or killed until the time of God’s choosing don’t turn out to be Moses and Elijah…
    that said, this is a good study and i’ve gained a new insight on Peter – well could be him and it should give hope to a lot of wives whose husbands’ behavior has them wincing at times … LOL here too

    if so maybe Trump can hope for a place at the table, too 🙂

    The 2 witnesses oh Rev 11 are in fact the Church during the time between the 2 advents – it’s missional and prophetic offices being those 2 witnesses to the world.

  7. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    I have this Transfiguration thought that runs through my mind. It crosses the time space continuum.
    This scene, played out for the disciples is really Jesus speaking to Moses in the burning Bush and speaking to Elijah in the small still voice.

    JoelG,

    This is just a side note but Peter means “Stone”, James means “Supplanter”, and John means “Yahweh Grace”.

    “The Stone” as been “Supplanted” by “God’s Grace.”

    Or something like that. 🙂

  9. JoelG says:

    Thank you CostcoCal. Interesting.

  10. CostcoCal says:

    Not saying that answers your question. I think it’s cool, though.

  11. JoelG says:

    It is cool. And cool that Peter got to be in the inner circle. He got to witness the Transfiguration, among other miracles, and stick his foot in his mouth over and over…. even deny Christ after it all and the Lord never lets him go. There’s hope for us all. 🙂

  12. John 20:29 says:

    #6 – is the death of the Church then the reason for the world’s celebration?
    prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt and i’ll buy it and … sigh … give up my dream 🙂

  13. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    em, the Church is the witness to the world. Many times in the past and in the present and in the future the world thinks it has ended the Church – killed it off so to speak – but God always raises it back up.

    As all things in Revelation are symbolic (there is no literal Beast or Dragon chasing anyone) – characters like Moses and Elijah would come to John’s mind as the entirety of The Law and the Prophets which are fulfilled and witnessed to in and by the Church.
