1 Sarah R = "Matthew 17:1-8After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!”6 When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified. 7 But Jesus came and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” 8 When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus."
2 Cary W = "Our goal continues to be one of being silent before the Spirit and seek to "hear only Him!""
3 Shawn Bose = "A nice lecture on The Meaning of Transfiguration as found in Matthew 17:2 here on Deily."
4 Sarah R = "This must be Elijah. Elijah symbolizes the prophets of the Old Testament, who spoke of the coming Messiah and whose words were fulfilled in Jesus. An interesting fact about Elijah: he is one of two people in the Bible who are described as being "taken up to Heaven" rather than physically dying (2 Kings 2:11). The other is Enoch (Gen 5:22-24)."
5 Sarah R = "I assume that this is Moses here because he has a tablet in his hands. Moses symbolizes the Law that Jesus fulfilled through His Holy life. It is also significant to note that Moses brought his people to the Promised Land in obedience to God, but was not allowed to enter it. During the transfiguration, however, he stood in the Promised Land with Jesus, the Messiah he had waited for and prophesied would come. God is good!"
