And he said to them, “Truly I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.” And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.” And suddenly , looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only.
For a few moments Yeshu is seen to be Who he really is.
Those three disciples never forgot that day. John would write, “We have seen his glory.” And Peter wrote, “We ourselves heard this very voice from heaven.” As for James, later on he was killed because the Jews were frightened by the powerful growth of the kingdom of God.
