Jesus took Peter, James and John and led them up a high mountain to pray. They were all alone. – Slide 1
Jesus began praying. – Slide 2
But the disciples were very sleepy. – Slide 3
As Jesus prayed, the appearance of His face changed, and His clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning.  – Slide 4
Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendour, talking with Jesus. They talked about the things that were about to happen to Jesus to fulfill the scriptures. – Slide 5
Peter, James and John woke up and saw the glory of Jesus and the two men standing with Him. They were frightened and Peter blurted out, ‘Let’s make three shelters for Jesus, Moses and Elijah.’ – Slide 6
Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: ‘This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to Him!’ Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus. – Slide 7
As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until He had risen from the dead. They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what ‘rising from the dead’ meant. – Slide 8
They asked Him, ‘Why do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come before the Saviour, the Messiah?’ – Slide 9
Jesus replied, ‘Elijah does come first, then the Son of Man must suffer and be rejected? But I tell you, Elijah has come already. The disciples understood by this that Jesus meant John the Baptist. – Slide 10
