Bible: Luke 9:28-36

The Transfiguration

9:28 Now 1  about eight days 2  after these sayings, Jesus 3  took with him Peter, John, and James, and went up the mountain to pray. 9:29 As 4  he was praying, 5  the appearance of his face was transformed, 6  and his clothes became very bright, a brilliant white. 7  9:30 Then 8  two men, Moses and Elijah, 9  began talking with him. 10  9:31 They appeared in glorious splendor and spoke about his departure 11  that he was about to carry out 12  at Jerusalem. 13  9:32 Now Peter and those with him were quite sleepy, 14  but as they became fully awake, 15  they saw his glory and the two men standing with him. 9:33 Then 16  as the men 17  were starting to leave, 18  Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us make three shelters, 19  one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah– not knowing what he was saying. 9:34 As 20  he was saying this, a cloud 21  came 22  and overshadowed 23  them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 9:35 Then 24  a voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One. 25  Listen to him! 26  9:36 After 27  the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. So 28  they kept silent and told no one 29  at that time 30  anything of what they had seen.
