    “I wonder what is the significance of always going ‘up the mountain’.”

    The mountain symbolizes the Gospel. The valley symbolizes the Law.

    The mountain symbolizes our relationship with God. The valley symbolizes our relationships with our neighbors.

    We never bring the Law up the mountain.

  2. I think that this story of Jesus is central to the whole of scriptures. To repeat my comment finishing up v.32 – we see the work of Jesus in it’s entirety.

    “Jesus tramples his enemies – Jesus rules over creation – Jesus saves his own.”

  3. My reference in #2 – was to Jesus walking on the water. I thought I typed that in but I must have just been in a vision. 😉

    “In the OT, the sea was the enemy of God – In the sea was the home of Leviathan — The Beast”

    The sea also symbolizes chaos/disorder.

    One other passage that supplements your teaching is Revelation 21:1:

    “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.”

    In the new earth, there will be no sea, perhaps symbolizing the end of chaos, or, if you will, all of God’s enemies.

  7. Jean, I think you have it. If we watch closely and pay attention as we read, we find a few passages that enlighten the whole. This passage explains the gospels and another (which I think many miss) is Revelation 5 gives us the clue as to how The Book of Revelation is to be read.

  8. John 20:29 says:

    i’ll stay out of the gambol in the last book of the N.T., but…
    it occurred to me to wonder on “going up the mountain”… the Law (the basic 10) came down from the top of a mountain … God’s Book is so thorough that it’s almost supernatural… 🙂
