Glory in the Words of Jesus
Eight days after Jesus instructed His disciples to deny themselves, take up their crosses, and follow Him, He took Peter, James,and John up into a mountain to pray. As Jesus prayed, He was transfigured before them, and Moses and Elijah appeared with Him. Peter burst out, “Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah” (Luke 9:33). Suddenly a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son: hear him” (Luke 9:35). With this, Moses and Elijah vanished.
