Some were claiming Jesus’ physical resurrection from the dead was untrue, that at best it was an allegory or metaphor for something spiritual, and they scoffed at the claim that Jesus was one day coming back.
But Peter countered this with his own eyewitness account of having seen Jesus’ transfiguration, resurrection, and ascension, and of actually having heard the voice of Almighty God, rolling down as thunder from heaven, approving God’s Son at Jesus’ baptism, and at Jesus’ transfiguration.
“For he received honor and glory from God the Father when that voice was conveyed to him by the Majestic Glory, saying, ‘This is my Son, my Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.’
“We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven, while we were with him on the holy mountain.”2 Peter 1:17-18 (NRSV)
