Matthew 17 - AMP

2 And His appearance underwent a change in their presence; and His face shone Hermann Cremer, Biblico-Theological Lexicon.clear and bright like the sun, and His clothing became as white as light. 3 And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, who kept talking with Him. 4 Then Peter began to speak and said to Jesus, Lord, it is good and delightful that we are here; if You approve, I will put up three booths here--one for You and one for Moses and one for Elijah. 5 While he was still speaking, behold, a shining cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, This is My Son, My Beloved, with Whom I am delighted. Listen to Him! 6 When the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.seized with alarm and struck with fear. 7 But Jesus came and touched them and said, Get up, and do not be afraid. 8 And when they raised their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. 9 And as they were going down the mountain, Jesus cautioned and commanded them, Do not mention to anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead. 10 The disciples asked Him, Then why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first? 11 He replied, Elijah does come and will get everything restored and ready. 12 But I tell you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know or recognize him, but did to him as they liked. So also the Son of Man is going to be treated and suffer at their hands. 13 Then the disciples understood that He spoke to them about John the Baptist. 14 And when they approached the multitude, a man came up to Him, kneeling before Him and saying, 15 Lord, do pity and have mercy on my son, for he has epilepsy (is Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon: ``Epilepsy is supposed to return and increase with the increase of the moon."moonstruck) and he suffers terribly; for frequently he falls into the fire and many times into the water. 16 And I brought him to Your disciples, and they were not able to cure him. 17 And Jesus answered, O you unbelieving (Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.warped, wayward, rebellious) and Literally, ``throughout" (dia).thoroughly perverse generation! How long am I to remain with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to Me. 18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly. 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus and asked privately, Why could we not drive it out? 20 He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith . For truly I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. 21 Some manuscripts do not contain this verse.But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting. 22 When they were going about here and there in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of Man is going to be turned over into the hands of men. 23 And they will kill Him, and He will be raised again on the third day. And they were deeply and exceedingly grieved and distressed. 24 When they arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the half shekel went up to Peter and said, Does not your Teacher pay the half shekel? 25 He answered, Yes. And when he came home, Jesus spoke to him first, saying, What do you think, Simon? From whom do earthly rulers collect duties or tribute--from their own sons or from others Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.not of their own family? 26 And when Peter said, From other people Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.not of their own family, Jesus said to him, Then the sons are exempt. 27 However, in order not to give offense and cause them to stumble go down to the sea and throw in a hook. Take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you will find there a shekel. Take it and give it to them to pay the temple tax for Me and for yourself.

Matthew 17:19-20 – WHY DON’T I HAVE ENOUGH FAITH?
Shared by: Ross Cochrane on Oct, 2014
Summary: Is faith just optimism draped in impotence? Jesus faith is positive and powerful? Is their faith a bonsai faith, kept small and so stunted that it is inept; dwarfed by the enormity of circumstances that are in need of a miracle? How could this be? Midget faith is not mustard seed faith!
