Luke 9:28

Context
The Transfiguration

9:28 Now 1  about eight days 2  after these sayings, Jesus 3  took with him Peter, John, and James, and went up the mountain to pray.

1 tn Grk “Now it happened that about.” The introductory phrase ἐγένετο (egeneto, “it happened that”), common in Luke (69 times) and Acts (54 times), is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

2 tn Matt 17:1 and Mark 9:2 specify the interval more exactly, saying it was the sixth day. Luke uses ὡσεί (Jwsei, “about”) to give an approximate reference.

3 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
