We might naturally have thought that if there was one thing in the life of the LORD JESUS CHRIST which belonged to Him alone, it was His cross-bearing. To guard against so natural a mistake, the HOLY GHOST has taken care in gospel and in epistle to draw our special attention to the oneness of the believer with CHRIST in cross-bearing; and also to prevent misunderstanding as to the character …

For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord.--What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe …

The mysterious incident which is commonly called the Transfiguration contained three distinct portions, each having its own special significance and lesson.
