In Matthew 17 we read about Christ's Transfiguration - appearing in glory with Moses and Elijah. The text does not specify which mountain Jesus, Peter, James, and John ascended, but the text calls it a "high mountain". The traditional Catholic site is Mt. Tabor, but there seems to be little scholarly support for that mountain - more of a glorified hill. Several scholars believe the mountain Jesus ascended was Mt. Hermon because it was the highest mountain in the region and also happens to be right next to Caesarea Philippi where the text most recently placed Jesus (Matt. 16:13).
The Transfiguration gave a glimpse of the resurrection and glorification of the saints and like 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, even included a cloud.
The exact height of Mt. Hermon? 9,232 Feet.
"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."

MTG: Correct me if wrong, but she is part of the NAR movement and belief system. They believe that they will be instrumental in bringing about Christ's return and the millennial reign through worldly transformations of society - the seven mountain mandate etc.

MTG: Their doctrines are particularly insidious in powerful "political" contexts, but that is what they believe and seek. Power and sway. Power corrupts most all men who touch it - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dalberg-Acton,_1st_Baron_Acton

MTG: However, most of what is trafficking these days on Utube is full of errors with few insights - although much of it does not rise to the level of "heresy", sheep will be sheep. Even some heretics call out other's heresies... be careful.

EnochWalked: Reep: Yes, it's good to be discerning with these news stories, as they sometimes tell us more about the writer than about the subject they are writing about. Here's another recent article from Israel:
