To Grow in the True Grace of Jesus Christ Remain Established in the Truth Part 2 2 Peter 1:16-21

Remember the Truth Christ was seen and heard No prophecy originates in the prophet himself Men spoke from God by the Holy Spirit

Christ was seen and heard

No prophecy originates in the prophet himself

Men spoke from God by the Holy Spirit

2PE 1:16 We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For he received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased." 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.

2PE 1:19 And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Cleverly Invented Stories The use of myth “mythos” always negative in the NT Myth then and now Incarnation and the Resurrection were cast into doubt by false teachers Specifically – the second coming of Christ as it related to Peter’s presence at the transfiguration See Matthew 17.

The Origin of Scripture v. 21 To understand prophecy it must not be interpreted to according to our own ideas Neither dictation nor ecstasy. They were carried along by the Holy Spirit Who were the men? David said, "The Spirit of the Lord spoke through me; his word was on my tongue" (2Sam 23:2) or as Jeremiah was told, "You must ... say whatever I command you.... Now, I have put my words in your mouth" (Jer 1:7, 9)
