WE HEARD THIS OURSELVES, SPOKEN FROM HEAVEN.
It was not any cleverly invented myths that we were repeating when we brought you the knowledge of the power and the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ; we had seen his majesty for ourselves. He was honoured and glorified by God the Father, when the Sublime Glory itself spoke to him and said, “This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour.” We heard this ourselves, spoken from heaven, when we were with him on the holy mountain.
So we have confirmation of what was said in the prophecies; and you will be right to depend on prophecy and take it as a lamp for lighting a way through the dark until the dawn comes and the morning star rises in your minds.
V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
