Nov. 17- Ch. 17

After the transfiguration Matthew tells us, ” Jesus instructed them, ‘Don’t tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.’”  The disciples response is a bit curious to me, “Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?”  I think they still had a lot of difficulty of laying aside their preconceived ideas of what the Messiah was to be and to do.  Their question leads me to believe they were still hung up on their understandings and not on what Jesus had been teaching them.  If I were them I would still be shaking my head in wonderment that Jesus was going to raise for the dead.
