As they watched, he began to change form, NIV 2 After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone.

NIV 11 And they asked him, "Why do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?" CJB 12 "Eliyahu will indeed come first," he answered, "and he will restore everything. Nevertheless, why is it written in the Tanakh that the Son of Man must suffer much and be rejected? NIV 12 Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah does come first, and restores all things. Why then is it written that the Son of Man must suffer much and be rejected? CJB 13 There's more to it: I tell you that Eliyahu has come, and they did whatever they pleased to him, just as the Tanakh says about him."
