Bible: Matthew 17:9-13

17:9 As they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, 1 Do not tell anyone about the vision until the Son of Man is raised from the dead.” 17:10 The disciples asked him, 2 Why then do the experts in the law 3  say that Elijah must come first? 17:11 He 4  answered, “Elijah does indeed come first and will restore all things. 17:12 And I tell you that Elijah has already come. Yet they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they wanted. In 5  the same way, the Son of Man will suffer at their hands.” 17:13 Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them about John the Baptist.
