Timothy B Blaco's Luke Chapter 9 comment on 6/23/2022, 9:39pm...

Obviously, Peter, James and John see the kingdom coming at the Mt of Transfiguration. John especially, the Book of Revelation.

Compare all 3 passages of Matthew 17:1-9, Mark 9:1-9 and Luke 9:26-36.

Remember, Moses had died and God had buried him. Michael the archangel goes to get his body Jude 1:9

Elias (Elijah) was picked up by a chariot of fire 2 Kings 2:11-12.

They are returned by and re-enter a "cloud" where the voice of the Father is heard, Luke 9:34-35. Note the Father must have been in that cloud / chariot.

The clouds and chariots connection is found in Psalm 104:3 The clouds typify the chariots of the LORD which number 20,000 Psalm 68:17.. notice they are "as in Sinai", Moses time in Exodus. Of course the Cloud in Exodus performed as an aircraft / spacecraft as it came down from heaven and then did many aerial maneuvers.

When the second coming happens it is referred to many times as a "day of clouds" and in Isaiah 66:15 it involves "his chariots",

which is a fleet of at least 20,000 - Psalms 68:17.

Moses and Elias represent the Law and the Prophets, which is what Jesus came to fulfill -Luke 24:44 and they "spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem" - Luke 9:31

So then, Jesus makes the statement that there be some standing here which shall not taste of death till they see the kingdom of God... refers to the event of The Mt of Transfiguration event.

My opinion is the following dear Dora.

The verse has to do with what Jesus was talking about. Lets see what he was saying :

Luke 9:23-27

23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

25nFor what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

Jesus was talking about those who wanted to follow Him. He warned them that one has to deny everything, even his own life, and suffer persecutions to be able to follow Him.

The reward for those that believe in Him and follow him all the way through all harsh circumstances met in life is been accepted in the Kingdom of God. So He said there are people standing there that either

1) will not die the (spiritual) death untill this Kingdom arrives on earth .He talks about tthe litteral Kindom of God arriving at the very end of this world

or 2) He may have implied that there were people standing there that will not die the physical death untill His Kingdom arrives (He means His ressurection when the saved ones were transferred from Ades to Heaven.

But since Jesus talks about coming with glory and angels the former explanation seems to the right one, though the latter may not be wrong either.
