A Harmony of the Gospels for Students of the Life

How is it that the scribes say


[Footnote 1: Or, _booths_.]

[Footnote 2: Or, _departure_.]

[Footnote 3: Or, _having remained awake_.]

[Footnote 4: Many ancient authorities read _my beloved Son_. See Matt. 17:5; Mark 9:7.]

[Footnote 5: Or, _was past_.]

[Footnote a: The tradition which places the Transfiguration on Mount Tabor is beyond question false.]

[Footnote b: Probably not long before the feast of tabernacles (near end of September) and Peter may have meant that they celebrate the feast on the mountains instead of going to Jerusalem.]

[Footnote c: See Sect. 24 for similar language at the Baptism of Jesus.]

Sect. 86. THE PUZZLE OF THE THREE DISCIPLES ABOUT THE RESURRECTION AND ABOUT ELIJAH ON THEIR WAY DOWN THE MOUNTAIN

Mark 9:9-13 |Matt. 17:9-13 |Luke 9:36 | | 9 And as they were | 9 And as they were | coming down from the| coming down from the| mountain, he charged| mountain, Jesus | them that they | commanded them, |36 And they held should tell no man | saying, Tell the | their peace, and what things

they had| vision to no man, | told no man in seen, save when the | until the Son of man| those days any of Son of man should | be risen from the | the things which have risen again |10 dead. And his | they had seen. 10 from the dead. And | disciples asked him,| they kept the | saying, Why then say| saying, questioning | the scribes that | among themselves | Elijah must first | what the rising | come [_see Mal. | again from the dead |11 4:5-6_]? And he | 11 should mean. And | answered and said, | they asked him, | Elijah indeed | saying, [1]The | cometh, and shall | scribes say that | restore all things: | Elijah must first |12 but I say unto you, | 12 come. And he said | that Elijah is come | unto them, Elijah | already,[a] and they| indeed cometh first,| knew him not, but | and restoreth all | did unto him | things: and how is | whatsoever they | it written of the | listed [_see 1 Kings| Son of man, that he | 19:2, 10_]. Even so | should suffer many | shall the Son of man| things and be set at| also suffer of them.| 13 nought? But I say |13 Then understood the | unto you, that | disciples that he | Elijah is come, and | spake unto them of | they have also done | John the Baptist. | unto him whatsoever | | they listed, even as| | it is written of | | him. | |

[Footnote 1: Or, How is it _that the scribes say ... come?_]

[Footnote a: The Baptist's disclaimer about being Elijah (John 1:21) means only that he was not Elijah in person come back to earth according to popular expectation.]
