NET © Notes

tn This term describes a supernatural vision and reflects a clear distinction from something imagined (BDAG 718 s.v. ὅραμα 1). Peter repeated the story virtually word for word through v. 13. The repetition with this degree of detail shows the event’s importance.

tn Or “coming down.”

tn Or “the sky” (the same Greek word means both “heaven” and “sky”).
