Week 8: Day 4 - Wednesday (February 20, 2029)
1) Read Matthew 17: 1-13
1Six days later Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and brought them to the top of a very high mountain. 2He was transformed in front of them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as light.
3Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Jesus. 4Peter reacted to all of this by saying to Jesus, "Lord, it’s good that we’re here. If you want, I’ll make three shrines: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
5While he was still speaking, look, a bright cloud overshadowed them. A voice from the cloud said, "This is my Son whom I dearly love. I am very pleased with him. Listen to him!" 6Hearing this, the disciples fell on their faces, filled with awe.
7But Jesus came and touched them. "Get up," he said. "Don’t be afraid." 8When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
9As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus commanded them, "Don’t tell anybody about the vision until the Human OneOr Son of Manis raised from the dead."
10The disciples asked, "Then why do the legal experts say that Elijah must first come?"
11Jesus responded, "Elijah does come first and will restore all things. 12 In fact, I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they didn’t know him. But they did to him whatever they wanted. In the same way the Human OneOr Son of Man is also going to suffer at their hands." 13Then the disciples realized he was telling them about John the Baptist.
