1 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light.
3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.
4 Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah."
5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!"
6 When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified.
7 But Jesus came and touched them. "Get up," he said. "Don't be afraid."
8 When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus instructed them, "Don't tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead."
10 The disciples asked him, "Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
11 Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things.
12 But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands."
13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.
We see here the transfiguration of Jesus.The heart of Peter was divided in its loyalty - wanting to keep Moses representing the law, Elijah representing the prophets and Jesus representing the new revelation. He wanted to put them all in the same level. In Verse 4 he says I will put up three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.
Peter lacked the full understanding of Jesus's suprema-cy.As Peter was uttering these words, a cloud overshadowed them and God's voice announces," This is my son, whom I love…… listen to him !" God was not letting them get away thinking Jesus was at the same level as Moses and Elijah.
Their response: fell face down to the ground, terrified. The fear arose because they heard the voice of God and didn't understand the fullness of Jesus's deity.
Do something that Jesus would do( preach, visit the sick, encourage someone , share the gospel) LISTEN TO HIM.
