Peter, James, and John: for the reason these three were chosen.
Disciples, Inner Circle: Peter, James, and John apparently formed an inner circle around Jesus. Jesus revealed more to these three men than to other disciples. They were with Him when He raised Jairus' daughter, when He was in the Garden of Gethsemane, and here on the mount of transfiguration. Why were these three chosen to receive these additional revelations?
What is known is this. Each was being chosen for a very special leadership role. They were not aware of it yet, but they were to fill unique positions.
1. Peter was to be the leader of the early church, the one who was to open the door of the Gospel to both Jew and Gentile after Pentecost
(Acts 2: 1f; 10:1). Peter became first Pope of Rome.
2. James was to be the head of the Church's which was to be at Jerusalem (Acts 15:13).
3. John was to receive The Revelation from God to close out the Scripture.
Jesus is calling you to a special leadership role, you may not be aware of it yet. The Challenge is can you go up the Mountain with Jesus.
God bless you,
