Luke 9:28-33

Whenever I read Luke 9:33, it makes me smile.  While Moses and Elijah are leaving Jesus, Peter proposes making shelters for each of them.  This verse says, “…(He did not know what he was saying.)”  So, maybe later, Peter thought, “Why did I say that?”

I went to two sources for insight on Luke 9:33.  Liberty Bible Commentary says, “The three disciples were fast asleep while all this was transpiring, and were surprised by what they saw when they awoke.”

The Reformation Study Bible  by R. C. Sproul says, “Peter suggests building structures of some kind, perhaps to enable the experience to be prolonged.”

Peter probably didn’t know that people in the future would be analyzing his words.  Poor Peter.  His heart was in the right place.
