The disciples saw Jesus in His glory. As the son of God, Jesus was able to reveal God’s nature and intentions more fully then Moses and Elijah.
Jesus referred to himself as the “Son of Man”. This is one of the titles that the Old Testament prophets gave to the Messiah (Daniel 7:13).
As the first coming of Jesus, he was to sacrifice Himself as a ransom for our sins. This fulfills part of the prophecies relating to the Messiah. Before he returns to complete the prophecies, he will again be preceded by Elijah (Revelation 11:3-13) *If you’re finding Elijah confusing like I am, click here for more clarification.
John the Baptist preached with the spirit and power of Elijah, but he wasn’t Elijah (Luke 1:17; John 1:21)
Jesus is the Good Shepherd zealous in the protection of His sheep.
The symptoms of the demon-possessed boy resembled epilepsy. It’s not right to equate epilepsy with demon-possessed. Satan most likely caused the child to have violent symptoms to frighten the disciples so they would be powerless. The power of God is greater then the power of Satan (1 John 4:4).
The demons are under the authority of Christ. They must obey his commands.
Jesus used shocking images to convey the importance of entering the kingdom of God.
