Matthew 17 Verse 5 Meaning

While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Verse 5 Meaning

Jesus had taken Peter, James, and John to a high mountain where he spoke to Moses and Elijah. When they were talking together a bright cloud went around them and a voice from the cloud said this is my son whom I love with him I am well pleased.

Listen to him. (This is the voice of God.)

So what God is saying to the disciples is that you need to listen to Jesus. This is relevant to us as well for whatever Jesus says in the Bible.

We need to take as the truth, we need to take it into our hearts, we need to adhere to his word, we must not question what he says because Jesus is part of God so whatever Jesus says is the truth.

The reason why we need to listen to what Jesus says is that he is speaking on behalf of God. Jesus tells us about the essence of life on earth.

Jesus through the scriptures explains why we are on earth, explains to us how to live our lives, explains to us how to walk in faith, explains to us how to be righteous people with God.

We need to listen to him. It’s very important that we listen to what he says and to let the holy spirit lives within us.
