Six days later Jesus took Peter, James, and John to the top of a mountain. No one else was there. As the men watched, Jesus' appearance changed,
and his clothing became dazzling white, far whiter than any earthly process could ever make it.
Then Elijah and Moses appeared and began talking with Jesus.
"Teacher, this is wonderful!" Peter exclaimed. "We will make three shrines a -- one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
He didn't really know what to say, for they were all terribly afraid.
Then a cloud came over them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my beloved Son. Listen to him."
Suddenly they looked around, and Moses and Elijah were gone, and only Jesus was with them.
As they descended the mountainside, he told them not to tell anyone what they had seen until he, the Son of Man, had risen from the dead.
