About eight days after this conversation he took Peter, John, and James with him and went up into the hills to pray. And while he was praying his face changed and his clothes became dazzling white.
Suddenly there were two men talking with him; these were Moses and Elijah, who appeared in glory and spoke of his departure, the destiny he was to fulfill in Jerusalem.
Meanwhile Peter and his companions had been in a deep sleep; but when they awoke, they saw his glory and the two men who stood beside him.
And as these were moving away from Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, how good it is that we are here! Shall we make three shelters: one for you, one for Moses, one for Elijah?” (but he spoke without knowing what he was saying.)
The words were still on his lips when there came a cloud which cast a shadow over them; they were afraid as they entered the clous, and from it came a voice: “This is my son, my chosen; listen to him!”
When the voice had spoken, Jesus was seen to be alone.
The disciples kept silence and at that time told no one anything of what they had seen.
