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."

mike: Dangerous SoCal - I have a friend who is like this (more his wife) but she also dabbles in Yoga/meditation and odd stuff like that. So I am not surprised and if I had to 'bet' I would stake a wager that most if not all, deny the gospel

boymaker: Thanks for sharing Dr. Barry Awe. Apparently his channel blew up and many Christians are responding. A lot of mockers, but some are excited and admit they are feeling the Spirit when they watch him.

boymaker: Even if he's wrong, and he likely is, he stoked a fire in me and I'm glad for it.

EnochWalked: A guy on YouTube with nearly 3 million subscribers makes funny videos that are quite popular, although some of the jokes are in poor taste. His latest video has an interesting segment: youtu.be/td-OFKT-GPk?t=196 (timestamp 3:16 to 3:44).
