Where did the transfiguration occur?

"The gospels do not indicate the location of the high mountain that the Master chose. Early church tradition places the transfiguration on Mount Tabor, a prominent hill at the eastern end of the Jezreel valley, not far from Nazareth."

After six days

"When did the transfiguration happen? The gospels of Matthew and Mark both indicate that the revelation on the high mountain happened “after six days.” ... Six days after what?"

The three who saw

"Yeshua said that some of his disciples would not die before they saw the kingdom arrive. Which ones? And when did that happen?"

Teaching with authority

"The crowds found the prophet from Nazareth teaching His disciples on the mount, and they gathered around Him to listen. They heard his fiery words about entering the kingdom and the righteousness of the religious."

The house on the sand

"Have you built your spiritual life on sand? It’s one thing to know about Yeshua and believe in him; it’s another thing to heed his words and obey them."

The first encounter

"The Messiah we think that we know and seek is not always the same as the Messiah that lives and breathes. The risen one moved among men at times unrecognized by His own disciples."

Wilderness experience

"Do you ever feel like God has left you in a dry and waterless place? If so, you should be encouraged. Maybe He has some important revelation for you."

Lazar target: What ever happened to Lazarus?

"Archaeologists discovered a first century tomb at Bethany containing Jewish burial ossuaries. One of the bone boxes bore the name Martha. Another bore the name Lazarus. Is this the final resting place of the man Yeshua resurrected?"

The Caiaphas Prophecy

"The Gospel of John takes note of the irony in Caiaphas’ words. He had unwittingly uttered the gospel message..."

Jesus and the mummy

"Every person that Yeshua raised from the dead eventually died again. There is a big difference between a resurrection and resuscitation."
