Mark 9:1-7 — Good Rabbi (My Beautiful Teacher)
1. And he would say to them, “Truly I say to you, that there are some who are standing here who will not taste of death until they see the Kingdom of Elohim which has come in power.”
2. And after six days Y’shua took Keefa and Ya’akov and Yochanan and privately took them up into a high mountain. And he was transfigured before their eyes.
3. And his clothes were bright and became very white resembling snow. So much so that the sons of men are not able to make this white.
4. Y’shua was speaking with Eliyahu and Moshe and were seen by them.
5. And Keefa said to him, “Good Rabbi,³³ it is good for us that we remain here. Let us make three booths, one for you, and one for Moshe, and one for Eliyahu.
6. And he did not know what he was saying, for they were in fear.
7. And a cloud came and it was overshadowing them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son. Hear him!”
³³ The word Keefa (Peter) uses here for “good” is SHAPIR, which has a meaning closer to “beautiful” in English. Therefore Keefa can be said to be addressing Y’shua as “my beautiful teacher”. — AENT 2016
