In this chapter, we have, I. Christ's
transfiguration upon the mount, ver.
1-13. II. His casting the devil out of a child, when the
disciples could not do it, ver.
14-29. III. His prediction of his own sufferings and
death, ver. 30-32. IV.
The check he gave to his disciples for disputing who should be
greatest (ver. 33-37);
and to John for rebuking one who cast out devils in Christ's name,
and did not follow with them, ver.
38-41. V. Christ's discourse with his disciples of the
danger of offending one of his little ones (ver. 42), and of indulging that in ourselves,
which is an offence and an occasion of sin to us (ver. 43-50), most of which
passages we had before, Matt.
xvii. and xviii.
