And it came to pass, about eight days after these words, that he took Peter and James and John and went up into a mountain to pray.
And whilst he prayed, the shape of his countenance was altered and his raiment became white and glittering.
And behold two men were talking with him. And they were Moses and Elias,
Appearing in majesty. And they spoke of his decease that he should accomplish in Jerusalem.
But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep. And waking, they saw his glory and the two men that stood with him.
And it came to pass that, as they were departing from him, Peter saith to Jesus: 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 Elias: not knowing what he said.
And as he spoke these things, there came a cloud and overshadowed them. And they were afraid when they entered into the cloud.
And a voice came out of the cloud; saying: This is my beloved son. Hear him.
And whilst the voice was uttered Jesus was found alone. And they held their peace and told no man in those days any of these things which they had seen.
And it came to pass the day following, when they came down from the mountain, there met him a great multitude.
And behold a man among the crowd cried out, saying: Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son, because he is my only one.
And lo, a spirit seizeth him, and he suddenly crieth out, and he throweth him down and teareth him, so that he foameth; and bruising him, he hardly departeth from him.
And I desired thy disciples to cast him out: and they could not.
And Jesus, answering:, said: O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you and suffer you? Bring hither thy son.
And as he was coming to him, the devil threw him down and tore him.
And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit and cured the boy and restored him to his father.
And all were astonished at the mighty power of God. But while all wondered at all the things he did, he said to his disciples: Lay you up in your hearts these words, for it shall come to pass that the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men.
But they understood not this word: and it was hid from them, so that they perceived it not. And they were afraid to ask him concerning this word.
And there entered a thought into them, which of them should be greater.
But Jesus seeing the thoughts of their hearts, took a child and set him by him,
And said to them: Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me; and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me. For he that is the lesser among you all, he is the greater.
And John, answering, said: Master, we saw a certain man casting out devils in thy name: and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us.
And Jesus said to him: Forbid him not: for he that is not against you is for you.
And it came to pass, when the days of his assumption were accomplishing, that he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem.
And he sent messengers before his face: and going, they entered into a city of the Samaritans, to prepare for him.
And they received him not, because his face was of one going to Jerusalem.
And when his disciples, James and John, had seen this, they said: Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?
And turning, he rebuked them, saying: you know not of what spirit you are.
The Son of man came not to destroy souls, but to save. And they went into another town.
And it came to pass, as they walked in the way, that a certain man said to him: I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
Jesus said to him: The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air nests: but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
But he said to another: Follow me. And he said: Lord, suffer me first to go and to bury my father.
And Jesus said to him: Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
And another said: I will follow thee, Lord; but let me first take my leave of them that are at my house.
Jesus said to him: No man putting his hand to the plough and looking back is fit for the kingdom of God.
