Luke 9:28-36: The Gospel Lectionary Passage for February 14, 2010

This is my own translation of the lectionary gospel lesson for Sunday. Please make any comments concerning the passage you want. Together, let's discuss the Word of God:


28And it happened after those words, about eight days, [Jesus] took Peter and James and John and went up onto the mountain to pray. 29And it happened as he was praying, the look of his face changed and his clothes became white, flashing like lightning. 30And behold, two men were talking with him (Moses and Elijah) 31who appeared in glory. They talked about his exodus which must be accomplished in Jerusalem. 32And Peter and those who were with him had become weighed down with sleep. And when they woke up, they saw his glory and the two men who were standing with him. 33And it happen when they separated from him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good that we are here. And we will make three shelters: one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah. He didn’t what he was saying. 34And after he’d said these things, a cloud appeared and it cast a shadow over them. And they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35And a voice came out of the cloud saying, “This is my son, the one who is chosen. Listen to him.” 36And after the voice came, Jesus was found alone. And they were silent and told no one of those things they’d seen that day.
