THE THINGS THAT REMAINED
After some heavenly vision it is fit that a pause should be made, and the question asked, what is left when the actual vision has passed, and what is the result of the vision? After the bright cloud that interrupted the ignorant speech of the disciples and after the heavenly voice had ceased, what happened? When the cloud overshadowed them, and they heard the voice of God, they fell on their faces in fear. When they opened their eyes and looked around, what was left? The answer to that question is to be found in a few minutes pause on the mountainside, whence the glory had passed away, and then in a descent from the mountain in the company of Jesus. All the truth they had heard and been taught now had a way of comprehension.
