More about listening
Here's another one:
Jesus takes Peter, James and John up on the mountainside to pray. As he was praying, he was changed. His face changed and his clothing became dazzling white. Moses and Elijah appear with him, and they visit about God's plan for Jesus to die in Jerusalem. Then Peter suggests building three shrines for the three of them (The word shrines appears in the New Living Translation. Other translations use the word "tent."). Just then a cloud came over them, and terror gripped them.
And a voice comes from heaven saying, "This is my Son, my Chosen One. Listen to him." (Luke 9:35)
Not hear. Not read. Not notice. Not observe.
