2 Peter 1:16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

16 We did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming[a] of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty.

Footnotes:

  1. 1:16 Coming: in Greek parousia, used at 2 Pt 3:4, 12 of the second coming of Christ. The word was used in the extrabiblical writings for the visitation of someone in authority; in Greek cult and Hellenistic Judaism it was used for the manifestation of the divine presence. That the apostles made known has been interpreted to refer to Jesus’ transfiguration (2 Pt 1:17) or to his entire first coming or to his future coming in power (2 Pt 3).
