They had been to the mountaintop, the “sacred mountain” (2Pet.1:17, 18), as Peter would later call it. They had seen the Lord transfigured and heard the voice of God. In contrast, now they were coming down from the mountaintop into a familiar world, a fallen world of sin, sickness, hopelessness and death. The contrast will continue to heighten as they are reunited with the other disciples who they find entangled in a great struggle with the Pharisees and the people. The disciples have no power or remedy for what they are facing – until Jesus arrives. This is the key to the passage and to all of life for believers. Wait for Jesus to arrive!

In reality, the view of world they had lived in began to change. They had lived in a world of false teaching and deception. That world was controlled by an “adulterous and sinful generation” (Mar.8:38). They are witnessing the coming of the Kingdom of God in the coming of the Jesus, the Messiah. The disciples had misunderstood the person of the messiah and a proper understanding of the Kingdom (Rule) of God; they had misunderstood the cost of their calling to be disciples of Christ; and they had especially missed the mission and method of the Messiah’s coming. In this text today, Jesus will clarify the two main persons in God’s eschatological plan: John the Baptist and Himself.

They also serve a prophetic prelude to the other Gospels and give insight into the depth of research which Luke pursued in discovering them, likely from Mary herself.
