When I reflect on the Transfiguration, I can actually feel what I believe the disciples felt at that time. They didn´t want to come down, until they realized the magnitude of what they were experiencing. Then there was fear. In my hour with Christ after Mass, I have a fear of leaving Him and going out into the world, and the prince of this world. Jesus talked about the coming of the Kingdom in a general manner. The Kingdom is at hand, He said. Can someone actually be inmortal? It´s within God´s power. Could John the Baptist or John the beloved, be given a glorious body before the resurrection? It´s within God´s power. I personally believe, that He´s talking about the Transfiguration. The Transfiguration story, and He coming in glory, follows the Coming of the Kingdom statement. Do we know? Absolutely not. Is it true? Absolutely. It´s like believing the logic of the Holy Trinity, as well as the Holy Eucarist. Just because we can´t fathom it, doesn´t make it false. God never lies. God bless:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
What did Lord Jesus before this:
From that time forth began Jesus to show to his disciples, how that he must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
Then said Jesus to his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whoever will save his life shall lose it: and whoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
And now he says:
Truly I say to you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.
He is talking about what happen after his death and his raise in third day(Matthew16:21) and His coming back is with his angels and then he shall reward every man according to his works.(Mathew16:27)
So this commentary is not true.
