New Defender's Study Bible Notes
9:1 kingdom of God. The fact that Matthew, Mark and Luke all record this remarkable promise immediately before the experience of Peter, James and John on the Mount of Transfiguration indicates that they understood that experience to be the fulfillment of the promise. In effect, the three disciples were translated in a vision (Matthew 17:9) to the glory of the future kingdom. See notes on Matthew 17:3,5,8.
