New Testament in a Year - April 10

Luke 9:28-45- Easy-To-Read Version (ERV)

April 10

King James and other versions... []~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Moses, Elijah, and Jesus

28About eight days after Jesus said these things, he took Peter, James, and John
and went up on a mountain to pray. 29While Jesus was praying, his face began to
change. His clothes became shining white. 30Then two men were talking with Jesus.
The men were Moses and Elijah.* 31Moses and Elijah were shining bright too. They
were talking with Jesus about his death that would happen in Jerusalem. 32Peter
and the others were asleep. But they woke up and saw the glory of Jesus. They also
saw the two men that were standing with Jesus. 33When Moses and Elijah were leaving,
Peter said, "Master, it is good that we are here. We will put three tents here--one
for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." (Peter did not know what he was saying.)
34While Peter was saying these things, a cloud came all around them. Peter, James,
and John became afraid when the cloud covered them. 35A voice came from the cloud.
The voice said, "This is my Son. He is the One I have chosen. Obey him." 36When
the voice finished, only Jesus was there. Peter, James, and John said nothing. At
that time they told no person about what they had seen.

Jesus Heals a Boy That Has an Evil Spirit

37The next day, Jesus, Peter, James, and John came down from the mountain. A large
group of people met Jesus. 38A man in the group shouted to Jesus, "Teacher, please
come and look at my son. He is the only child I have. 39An evil spirit [from the
devil] comes into my son, and then he shouts. He loses control of himself and he
foams from the mouth. The evil spirit continues to hurt him and almost never leaves
him. 40I begged your followers to make the evil spirit leave my son, but they could
not do it." 41Jesus answered, "You people that live now have no faith. Your lives
are all wrong. How long must I be with you and be patient with you?" Then Jesus
said to the man, "Bring your son here." 42While the boy was coming, the demon* threw
the boy to the ground. The boy lost control of himself. But Jesus gave a strong
command to the evil spirit. Then the boy was healed. And Jesus gave the boy back
to his father. 43All the people were amazed at the great power of God.

Jesus Talks About His Death

The people were still amazed about all the things Jesus did. Jesus said to his followers,
44"Don't forget the things I will tell you now: The Son of Man* will be given into
the control of some men." 45But the followers did not understand what Jesus meant.
The meaning was hidden from them so that they could not understand it. But the followers
were afraid to ask Jesus about what he said.
