la) An high Mountain apart from the People.] Yerom (Epift. 17, 18.) tells us, that there was in his Days an antient Tradition, that this was Mount Tabor, which lay in the Tribe of Zebulon. Its standing apart, (as Mr. Maundrell observes that it does, Travels, pag. 112.) is to be sure no Argument to prove it ; for that Expression only signifies, that it was a private Retirement, which it might have been, had it made Part of a Ridge of Mountains. However, as this happened at the Distance of fix Days, there seems to be but little Probability in Mr. Fleming's Conjecture, that since Christ was just before near Cæfarea Philippi, this must be the Mountain in that Neighbourhood, on which one of Jeroboam's Calves had been worshipped, over which he thinks it a Kind of Triumph, that the Shekinah was thus gloriously manifested, where it had been so long affronted by Idolatry. See Fleming's Christology, Vol. i. pag. 40. VOL. II,

CHRIST is transfigured on a Mountain, Sect. 9o. ing, as he often did, to spend the Night in that

And as he was praying, it came to pass, that Luke IX. 29. And as 29. be-was suddenly in a most glorious Manner trans

Such a Glory did GOD confer on his Son, as an Earnest of that in which he was finally to appear ; and he permitted these his Servants to see it, that they might not be offended at those Scenes of deep Abasement, in which they were -fhortly to behold him. (Compare Mat. xxvi. 37.

Sect. 182.) : Mark IX. 4. And behold, there appeared to them, at the fame MARK IX. 4. And (be-Time that they saw their Lord in this splendid hold, ) there appeared unto

(6) To spend the Night in that holy Exercise.] This appears from Luke ix. 37. where we read of their coming down from the Hill on the next Day." See pag. 8.

(c) The Form of his Countenance was changed.] This was so striking a Circumstance, that Eunapius (Vit. Jambl. pag. 22.) relates a Story of Jamblichus, which seems evidently to be borrowed from this ; as many Things which Philoftratus tells us of Apollonius Tyanæus, seein also to have been borrowed from other Histories recorded of Christ by the Evangelists.

(d) White and dazzling.] The Words EuroS EEdsparla may literally be rendered, white as Lightning ; but as this Clause stands here connected with parallel Passages in the other Evangelifts, I chose to render it dazzling, that some proper Gradation might be observed, which would otherwise have been destroyed.

(e) Spake of his Exit, which he was shortly to accomplish at Jerufalem.] Dr. Hammond and Le Clerc seem greatly mistaken, in referring this to Christ's Victory over the impenitent Jews in the Destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans ; for tho' the Word e Eodos does sometimes signify a Military Expedition, (feé Elsner. Obferv. Vol. i. pag. 219.) yet it is plainly uled for Death, or a Departure out of the World, 2 Pet. i. 15. and Wisd. iii. 2. which suits much better here with the Construction, ey lepxo annuo

U Heard the Conclusion of their Conference, &c.] It might not, perhaps, have been proper, they fhould have heard the whole of it: God might intend to reveal some of those in Things to them by the Spirit, and the Knowledge of others might be reserved to the Disco- ' veries of the Heavenly State. (8) Let us make three Tents here.] Mr. Fleming thinks, it is as if he had said, “ Lord, let this Mountain be to Ifrael now, what Sinai was to our Fathers : Hold, as it were, thy Court here ; and let the People resort hither, to learn thy Will, and pay their Homage to thee, attended by these thy glorified Servants.” (See Fleming's Christology, Vol. i. p. 46.)

this seems too great a Refinement, and too deep a Scheme. I rather chuse to interpret em, as Words of rapturous Surprize, intended merely to express the Pleasure they had, in

hat they saw and heard. The Proposal was, as St. Mark observes, very improper ; but perhaps few, in such an astonishing Circumftance, could have been perfectly Masters of Infelves. - The Tents, they proposed to build, must be only slight Huts, or Bowers ;

there is no Reason at all to suppose, they meant any sumptuous Tabernacles, like that of ches in the Wilderness : And that no such Idea might accidentally be raised, I chose to use the Word Tents,
