c. Transfiguration in the Miniature of the Kingdom
28 Truly I say to you, There are some of those standing here who shall by no means taste death until they see the Son of Man 1acoming in His kingdom.
1 aAnd after six days Jesus btook with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and 1brought them up to a 2chigh mountain privately.
2 And He was 1atransfigured before them, and His face shone like the bsun, and His garments became as cwhite as the light.
3 And behold, 1aMoses and bElijah appeared to them, conversing with Him.
4 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You are willing, I will make 1three atents here, one for You and one for Moses and one for Elijah.
5 While he was still speaking, behold, a bright acloud overshadowed them, and behold, a bvoice out of the cloud, saying, 1This is My Son, the cBeloved, in whom I have found My delight. dHear 2Him!
6 And when the disciples aheard this, they bfell on their face and were greatly frightened.
7 And Jesus came to them and atouched them and said, Arise, and do not be afraid.
8 And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw 1no one except Jesus Himself alone.
9 aAnd as they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, Tell the 1vision to no one until the bSon of Man is craised from the dead.
10 And the disciples asked Him, saying, Why then do the scribes say that 1aElijah must come first?
11 And He answered and said, 1Elijah indeed is coming and will arestore all things;
12 But I say to you that 1aElijah has already come; and they did not recognize him, but bdid with him the things they wished. So also the Son of Man is about to suffer by them.
13 Then the disciples understood that He spoke to them concerning John the Baptist.
