The Complete Sayings of Jesus, by Arthur Hinds, [1927] A.D. 29 Age 32. On, and near, Mt. Hermon. Luke 9, 28-42: Matthew 17, 1-21: Mark 9, 2-29. IT came to pass, about an eight † days after these sayings, Jesus taketh Peter, John, and James his brother, and went up into a high mountain apart to pray: and Jesus was transfigured before them. As he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered: his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light, and glistering, shining as snow, exceeding white, so as no fuller on earth can white them. And, behold, two men, Moses and Elias: who appeared in glory: talking with Jesus [they] spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem. Peter and they that were with Jesus saw his glory, and the two men with Jesus. There came a bright cloud, and overshadowed them: and a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. The disciples fell on their face, and were sore afraid. Jesus came and touched them, and said, Suddenly, when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only. And he charged them, ¶Questioning with one another what the rising from the dead should mean, his disciples asked Jesus, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? Jesus told them, But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come already, and they knew him not; and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. The disciples understood that he spake of John the Baptist. They kept it close, and told no man in those days any of the things which they had seen. ¶When Jesus saw a multitude about his disciples, and the scribes questioning with them, he asked the scribes, One of the multitude answered, Master, I have brought unto thee my son: Lord, have mercy; for he is lunatic, and sore vexed: ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. A spirit teareth him that he foameth again, and gnasheth his teeth, and pineth away. I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. He is mine only child. Then Jesus said, Bring thy son hither to me. They brought him: and as he was yet a coming, the spirit tare him; and he fell, and wallowed foaming. Jesus asked his father, He said, Of a child. Have compassion on us. Jesus said, Straightway the father said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou my unbelief. Jesus rebuked the foul spirit, saying, The child was cured from that very hour. ¶When Jesus was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? Jesus answered, 57:† Thus Luke. Matthew and Mark have it, "after six days."

1 Cary W = "Moses died like an ordinary man, being forbidden the promise land for His disobedience in his use of a God given gift of power...his staff.  Elias, a prophet who "walked with God", was taken up, never having died, directly to heaven.  The ascension.  Perhaps one of the first recorded.  Yet both of these individuals, are given a door to pass through to physically manifest in front of Jesus and his human companions...they were no ghosts, just really bright beings.  This is our high calling.  We are each given this invitation of the transfiguration...to not only see beyond the veil of the physical, limited world, but to glimpse the living saints who are still here.  Like Jesus now, any saint can appear to us, at any time.  Just ask any shaman!"
2 Cary W = "This is the second time the Father appears and tells us Himself that Jesus is His Son and that we should hear only Him.  And what He demonstrate and tells us is that in Him, we are all God's Son and can be just like Him in truth, power, love and service."
