NOTES ON CHAP. XVII.



Verse 1. After six days] Mr 9:2, has the same number; but

Luke says, Lu 9:28,

after eight days. The reason of this difference seems to be the

following: Matthew and Mark reckon the days from that mentioned in

the preceding chapter, to that mentioned in this; Luke includes

both days, as well as the six intermediate: hence, the one makes

eight, the other six, without any contradiction.



Peter, James, and John] He chose those that they might be

witnesses of his transfiguration: two or three witnesses being

required by the Scripture to substantiate any fact. Eminent

communications of the Divine favour prepare for, and entitle to,

great services and great conflicts. The same three were made

witnesses of his agony in the garden, Mt 26:37.



A high mountain] This was one of the mountains of Galilee; but

whether Mount Tabor or not, is uncertain. Some think it was Mount

Hermon. St. Luke says, Christ and his disciples went up into the

mountain to pray, Lu 9:28.
