Jesus goes to a mountaintop with three of His disciples. And meets with His father and two men, possibly Moses and Elijah.
Peter wanted to build three Shelters or Tabernacles or Sacred Tents. God replied to Peter’s comments by saying, “Listen to my Son”.
God now does not dwell in tents but in His people’s hearts.
Once again Jesus was to tell His disciples that He was going to die and how it was to happen and yet the disciples still did not get it.
The Transfiguration – Jesus’ Appearance is Changed
9:28 Now about eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John, and James with him and went up on a mountain to pray. 29 While he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes turned dazzling white. 30 Suddenly, two men were talking with him. They were Moses and Elijah. 31 They had a glorified appearance, and were discussing Jesus’ departure that he would shortly bring about in Jerusalem.
32 Now Peter and the men with him had been overcome by sleep. When they woke up, they saw Jesus’ glory and the two men standing with him. 33 Just as Moses and Elijah were leaving, Peter told Jesus, “Master, it’s good that we’re here! Let’s set up three shelters —one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” (Peter didn’t know what he was saying.) 34 But while he was saying this, a cloud appeared and surrounded them, and they became terrified as they were being overshadowed by the cloud.
35 Then a voice came out of the cloud and said, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen. Keep listening to him!” 36 After the voice had spoken, Jesus was alone. The disciples kept silent and at that time told no one about what they had seen.
