  • Luke 9:28-10:16
  • Luke 9:28-36 – Jesus is transfigured. This must have greatly increased the faith of Peter, John, and James.  See II Peter 1:16-18.
  • Luke 9:37-42 – Jesus casts out a demon that the disciples could not. See Matthew 17:20.  The disciples did not have enough faith.
  • Luke 9:43-45 – The disciples again fail to understand what was going to happen to Jesus.
  • Luke 9:46-56 – The disciples argue about who is the greatest.
    • Luke 9:50 – See also Mark 9:38-40.
  • Luke 9:57-62 – Jesus could read hearts and did not accept excuses. What excuses could we possibly hope to use on the day of judgment?!
  • Luke 10:1-16 – Jesus sends out the 70 in pairs to teach.
    • Luke 10:1 – Some old manuscripts read 72 here. We cannot tell which one is correct, but either way it makes no doctrinal difference.
