Peter never forgot what he saw that day when he, along with James and John, witnessed the glorious transformation of Jesus’ appearance. According to Peter, they were “eyewitnesses of His majesty . . .” They heard God say, “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased” (2 Peter 1:16-18—see Matthew 17:1-8).
What they witnessed . . .
Peter, John, and Paul all testified to having seen Jesus after He rose from the dead (Acts 2:32; 3:15; 5:30-32; 10:38-41; John 20-21; Acts 22:6-15; 26:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8).
These men knew what they saw. They left a record of it. Their testimony agreed with one another, and they maintained their testimony to the end, in spite of repeated efforts to silence them (Acts 4:1-2,18-20; 5:27-32, 40-42).
We can believe
Their written testimony provides a solid foundation for our faith (John 20:30-31; 1 John 1:1-3).
How can we dismiss their testimony as legend or lies?
