The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleLuke 9:29
And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered,
&c.] It became exceeding bright and glorious, it shone like the sun,
(Matthew 17:2) and hereby his prayer was answered; and thus, as Christ
was heard and answered, whilst he was yet speaking, so are his people
sometimes; and even their countenance is altered, when they are
favoured with communion with God, and instead of a sad and dejected
countenance, they have a cheerful one.
And his raiment was white and glistering;
it was as white as the
light, as snow, and whiter than any fuller on earth could whiten, as
the other evangelists say, and so glistened exceedingly;
(See Gill on 17:2).
(See Gill on 9:3).
