The Transfiguration

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain where they could be alone. There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as white as the light. Suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they were talking with him. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. “Lord, he said “it is wonderful for us to be here; if you wish, I will make three tents here, on for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” He was still speaking when suddenly a bright cloud covered them with shadow, and from the cloud there came a voice which said, “This is my son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour. Listen to him”. When they heard this, the disciples fell on their faces, overcome with fear. But Jesus came up and touched them. “Stand up,” hes said “do not be afraid.” And when they raised their eyes they saw no one but Jesus.
