The Transfiguration

17Six days later Jesus took Peter and the two brothers, James and John, and led them up a high mountain to be alone.G2532G3326G1803G2250G2424G3880G4074G2532G2385G2532G2491G846G80G2532G399G846G399G1519G5308G3735G2596G23982As the men watched, Jesus' appearance was transformed so that his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as light.G2532G3339G1715G846G2532G846G4383G2989G5613G2246G1161G846G2440G1096G3022G5613G54573Suddenly, Moses and Elijah appeared and began talking with Jesus.G2532G2400G3700G846G3475G2532G2243G4814G3326G8464Peter exclaimed, "Lord, it's wonderful for us to be here! If you want, I'll make three shelters as memorialsc—one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."G1161G611G4074G2036G2424G2962G2076G2570G2248G1511G5602G1487G2309G4160G5602G5140G4633G3391G4671G2532G3391G3475G2532G3391G22435But even as he spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to him."G846G2089G2980G2400G5460G3507G1982G846G2532G2400G5456G1537G3507G3004G3778G2076G3450G27G5207G1722G3739G2106G191G8466The disciples were terrified and fell face down on the ground.G2532G3101G191G4098G1909G846G4383G2532G4970G53997Then Jesus came over and touched them. "Get up," he said. "Don't be afraid."G2532G2424G4334G680G846G2532G2036G1453G2532G5399G3361G53998And when they looked up, Moses and Elijah were gone, and they saw only Jesus.G1161G1869G846G3788G1492G3762G1508G2424G34419As they went back down the mountain, Jesus commanded them, "Don't tell anyone what you have seen until the Son of Manc has been raised from the dead."G2532G846G2597G575G3735G2424G1781G846G3004G2036G3705G3367G2193G3739G5207G444G450G1537G349810Then his disciples asked him, "Why do the teachers of religious law insist that Elijah must return before the Messiah comes?c"G2532G846G3101G1905G846G3004G5101G3767G3004G1122G3754G2243G1163G4412G206411Jesus replied, "Elijah is indeed coming first to get everything ready.G1161G2424G611G2036G846G2243G3303G4412G2064G2532G600G395612But I tell you, Elijah has already come, but he wasn't recognized, and they chose to abuse him. And in the same way they will also make the Son of Man suffer."G1161G3004G5213G3754G2243G2064G2235G2532G1921G846G3756G235G4160G1722G846G3745G2309G3779G3195G2532G5207G444G3958G5259G84613Then the disciples realized he was talking about John the Baptist.G5119G3101G4920G3754G2036G846G4012G2491G910

Jesus Heals a Demon-Possessed Boy

14At the foot of the mountain, a large crowd was waiting for them. A man came and knelt before Jesus and said,G2532G846G2064G4314G3793G4334G846G444G1120G846G2532G300415"Lord, have mercy on my son. He has seizures and suffers terribly. He often falls into the fire or into the water.G2962G1653G3450G5207G3754G4583G2532G2560G3958G1063G4178G4098G1519G4442G2532G4178G1519G520416So I brought him to your disciples, but they couldn't heal him."G2532G4374G846G4675G3101G2532G1410G3756G2323G84617Jesus said, "You faithless and corrupt people! How long must I be with you? How long must I put up with you? Bring the boy here to me."G1161G2424G611G2036G5599G571G2532G1294G1074G2193G4219G2071G3326G5216G2193G4219G430G5216G5342G846G5602G342718Then Jesus rebuked the demon in the boy, and it left him. From that moment the boy was well.G2532G2424G2008G1140G2532G846G1831G575G846G2532G3816G2323G575G1565G561019Afterward the disciples asked Jesus privately, "Why couldn't we cast out that demon?"G5119G4334G3101G2424G2596G2398G2036G1302G1410G3756G2249G1544G846G154420"You don't have enough faith," Jesus told them. "I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it would move. Nothing would be impossible."G1161G2424G2036G846G1223G5216G570G1063G281G3004G5213G1437G2192G4102G5613G2848G4615G2046G5129G3735G3327G1782G1563G2532G3327G2532G3762G101G521321cG1161G5124G1085G1607G3756G1607G1508G1722G4335G2532G3521

Jesus Again Predicts His Death

22After they gathered again in Galilee, Jesus told them, "The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of his enemies.G1161G846G390G1722G1056G2424G2036G846G5207G444G3195G3860G1519G5495G44423He will be killed, but on the third day he will be raised from the dead." And the disciples were filled with grief.G2532G615G846G2532G5154G2250G1453G2532G4970G3076

Payment of the Temple Tax

24On their arrival in Capernaum, the collectors of the Temple taxc came to Peter and asked him, "Doesn't your teacher pay the Temple tax?"G1161G846G2064G1519G2584G2983G1323G4334G4074G2532G2036G5055G3756G5216G1320G5055G132325"Yes, he does," Peter replied. Then he went into the house. But before he had a chance to speak, Jesus asked him, "What do you think, Peterc? Do kings tax their own people or the people they have conquered?"G3004G3483G2532G3753G1525G1519G3614G2424G4399G846G3004G5101G1380G4671G4613G575G5101G2983G935G1093G2983G5056G2228G2778G575G846G5207G2228G575G24526"They tax the people they have conquered," Peter replied. "Well, then," Jesus said, "the citizens are free!G4074G3004G846G575G245G2424G5346G846G686G1526G5207G165827However, we don't want to offend them, so go down to the lake and throw in a line. Open the mouth of the first fish you catch, and you will find a large silver coinc. Take it and pay the tax for both of us."G1161G3363G4624G846G4198G1519G2281G906G44G2532G142G2486G4412G305G2532G455G846G4750G2147G4715G1565G2983G1325G846G473G1700G2532G4675
