The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleLuke 9:28
And it came to pass, about an eight days after those
About a week after he had declared the above things,
at, or near to Caesarea Philippi. The other evangelists, Matthew and
Mark, say it was six days after: the reason of this difference is,
because Luke takes in the day in which he delivered these sayings,
and that in which he was transfigured, and they only reckon the
he took Peter, and John, and James;
the same that he admitted to be
with him at the raising of Jairus's daughter, and in the garden
and went up into a mountain to pray;
to his God and Father, that
his disciples might have a visible display of his glory, as an emblem
and pledge of that in which he shall hereafter appear: it was usual
with Christ to go up into a mountain to pray; (Matthew 14:23) (Luke 6:12) .
