We now can look in a glass, something that’s clear and see the glory of the Lord.  And, of course, that glass, that post-veil glass in which we see the glory of the Lord is the New Testament.  And as we gaze into the New Testament, we see the glory of the Lord.  And as we gaze at His glory, we are being transformed from one level of glory to the next, to the next, to the next, to the next by the Holy Spirit.  That is essentially the heart and soul of what it means to be a Christian.  You look into the New Testament you see the majesty of Jesus Christ. As the majesty of Christ fills your mind and captivates your soul, the Spirit of God uses the reality of your understanding of Christ to shape you into His image.  The more you know about Christ, the more likely you are to reflect Him. And that really is the Christian life. ~ John MacArthur

Some eight days after these sayings, He took along Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. And while He was praying, the appearance of His face became different, and His clothing became white and gleaming. And behold, two men were talking with Him; and they were Moses and Elijah, who, appearing in glory, were speaking of His departure which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. Now Peter and his companions had been overcome with sleep; but when they were fully awake, they saw His glory and the two men standing with Him. And as these were leaving Him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make three tabernacles: one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah”—not realizing what he was saying. While he was saying this, a cloud formed and began to overshadow them; and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. Then a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My Son, My Chosen One; listen to Him!” And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent, and reported to no one in those days any of the things which they had seen. ~ Luke 9:28-36



John answered, “Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he does not follow with us.” But Jesus said to him, “Do not stop him, for the one who is not against you is for you.” ~ Luke 9:49-50


They also had to learn to love others who were not a part of their special group (Luk_9:49-50). Jesus had not only His twelve apostles, but He also had seventy other men whom He could send out in service (Luk_10:1-2). John thought he was being spiritual by forbidding the anonymous man from serving, but Jesus lovingly rebuked him. For parallel situations, see Num_11:24-30, Joh_3:26-30, and Php_1:12-18. ~ Wiersbe’s expository outlines
