Ruth D – Was Peter present when Jesus was baptized? Is that what 2 Peter 1:18 is referring to?

Dave – I don’t think Peter was with Jesus when Jesus was baptized because He had not yet called His disciples to Him. John 1:35-42 reveals that Peter’s brother Andrew was a disciple of John the Baptist and that he brought Peter to Jesus sometime after Jesus was baptized by John. Andrew brought Peter to Jesus because he believed that they he had found the Messiah. So Andrew most likely witnessed the baptism. 2 Peter 1:18 is referring to the transfiguration when Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus. Peter, James, and John saw this.
