Moses said, 'The Lord God will raise up a prophet for you from among your brothers, as he raised me up. You must listen to everything that he tells you.


This was the Moses who said to the descendants of Israel, 'God will make a prophet rise from among your brothers to teach you, just as he made me rise.'






And Peter spoke, and said to Jesus, "Master, how good it is that we are here! If you wish, I will make three huts here, one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah." As he spoke a bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Son, my Beloved. He is my Chosen. Listen to him!"

Then Peter spoke, and said to Jesus, "Master, how good it is that we are here! Let us put up three huts, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah." For he did not know what to say, they were so frightened. And a cloud came and overshadowed them, and from the cloud came a voice, "This is my Son, my Beloved. Listen to him,"

Just as they were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, how good it is that we are here! Let us put up three huts, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah!" For he did not know what he was saying. But as he said it, a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were frightened as they passed under the cloud. And from the cloud came a voice that said, "This is my Son, my Chosen! Listen to him!"


Six days after this, Jesus took Peter and James and his brother John, and led them up on a high mountain, by themselves. And his appearance underwent a change in their presence and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as light. And Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with him. read more.
And Peter spoke, and said to Jesus, "Master, how good it is that we are here! If you wish, I will make three huts here, one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah." As he spoke a bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Son, my Beloved. He is my Chosen. Listen to him!" When the disciples heard it, they were dreadfully frightened and fell upon their faces. And Jesus came and touched them, and said, "Get up and do not be afraid." When they looked up, they saw no one but Jesus himself. And as they were going down the mountain, Jesus cautioned them, saying, "Do not tell anyone of the vision you have seen until the Son of Man is raised from the dead." The disciples asked him, "Then why do the scribes say that Elijah has to come first?" He answered, "Elijah does come and is to reform everything, but I tell you, Elijah has come already, and they would not recognize him, but treated him just as they pleased. It is in just that way that the Son of Man is going to be treated by them!" Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them of John the Baptist.

Six days after this Jesus took Peter, James, and John with him, and led them up on a high mountain, off by themselves. And his appearance underwent a change in their presence, and his clothes shone whiter than any earthly bleaching could make them. And Elijah appeared to them, accompanied by Moses, and they talked with Jesus. read more.

For he did not know what to say, they were so frightened. And a cloud came and overshadowed them, and from the cloud came a voice, "This is my Son, my Beloved. Listen to him," And suddenly, on looking around, they saw that there was now no one with them but Jesus alone. As they were going down the mountain, he cautioned them to let no one know what they had seen, until the Son of Man should rise from the dead. And they did not forget what he said, but discussed with one another what he meant by the rising from the dead. And they asked him, "Why do the scribes say that Elijah has to come first?" He said to them, "Elijah does come first, and reforms everything, and does not the Scripture say of the Son of Man that he will suffer much and be refused? Why, I tell you, not only has Elijah come, but people have treated him just as they pleased, as the Scripture says about him."

It was about eight days after Jesus said this that he took Peter, John, and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. And as he was praying, the look of his face changed and his clothes turned dazzling white. And two men were talking with him. They were Moses and Elijah, read more.
and they appeared in glory and spoke of his departure which he was to go through with at Jerusalem. Peter and his companions had been overcome by sleep, but waking up they saw his glorious appearance and the two men standing by him. Just as they were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, how good it is that we are here! Let us put up three huts, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah!" For he did not know what he was saying. But as he said it, a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were frightened as they passed under the cloud. And from the cloud came a voice that said, "This is my Son, my Chosen! Listen to him!" At the sound of the voice, they saw that Jesus was alone. And they kept silence, and said nothing about it to anyone at that time.



For the Father loves the Son and lets him see everything that he himself is doing, and he will let him see greater deeds than these, to make you wonder.

For they were no fictitious stories that we followed when we informed you of the power of our Lord Jesus Christ and of his coming, but we had been eye-witnesses of his majesty. For when he was so honored and glorified by God the Father and from the supreme glory there were borne to him such words as these: "This is my Son, my Beloved! He is my Chosen!"??18 we heard these words borne from heaven when we were with him on that sacred mountain.

And Peter spoke, and said to Jesus, "Master, how good it is that we are here! If you wish, I will make three huts here, one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah."

"Men of Israel, listen to what I say. Jesus of Nazareth, as you know, was a man whom God commended to you by the wonders, portents, and signs that God did right among you through him.

so that all men may honor the Son just as much as they honor the Father. Whoever refuses to honor the Son refuses to honor the Father who sent him. I tell you, whoever listens to my message and believes him who has sent me, possesses eternal life, and will not come to judgment, but has already passed out of death into life. I tell you, the time is coming??t is here already!??hen those who are dead will listen to the voice of the Son of God, and those who listen to it will live. read more.
For just as the Father is self-existent, he has given self-existence to the Son, and he has given him the authority to act as judge, because he is a son of man. Do not be surprised at this, for the time is coming when all who are in their graves will listen to his voice, and those who have done right will come out to resurrection and life, and those who have done wrong, to resurrection and judgment. I cannot do anything of my own accord. I pass judgment just as I am told to do, and my judgment is just, for I am not seeking to do what I please, but what pleases him who has sent me. "If I testify to myself, my testimony is not true. It is someone else who testifies to me, and I know that the testimony that he gives about me is true. You yourselves sent to John, and he testified to the truth. But the testimony that I accept is not from any man; I am only saying this that you may be saved. He was the lamp that burned and shone, and you were ready to be gladdened for a while by his light. But I have higher testimony than John's, for the things that my Father has intrusted to me to accomplish, the very things that I am doing, are proof that my Father has sent me, and my Father who has sent me has thus borne witness to me. You have never heard his voice or seen his form, and you do not keep his message in your hearts, for you do not believe the messenger whom he has sent.

The Pharisees said to him, "You are testifying to yourself. Your testimony is not true." Jesus answered, "Even if I am testifying to myself, my testimony is true, for I know where I have come from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from or where I am going. You judge by material standards, but I am judging nobody. read more.
But even if I do judge, my decision is just, because I am not by myself, but the Father who sent me is with me. Why, in your own Law it is stated that the testimony of two persons is valid. Here I am testifying to myself, and the Father who has sent me testifies to me."

Jesus answered, "I have told you so, and you will not believe it. The things I have been doing by my Father's authority are my credentials, but you do not believe it because you do not belong to my sheep. My sheep listen to my voice, and I know them and they follow me, read more.
and I give them eternal life, and they shall never be lost, and no one shall tear them out of my hands. What my Father has intrusted to me is of more importance than everything else, and no one can tear anything out of the Father's hands. The Father and I are one." The Jews again picked up stones to stone him with. Jesus answered, "I have let you see many good things from the Father; which of them do you mean to stone me for?" The Jews answered, "We are not stoning you for doing anything good, but for your impious talk, and because you, a mere man, make yourself out to be God." Jesus answered, "Is it not declared in your Law, 'I said, "You are gods" '? If those to whom God's message was addressed were called gods??nd the Scripture cannot be set aside??36 do you mean to say to me whom the Father has consecrated and made his messenger to the world, 'You are blasphemous,' because I said, 'I am God's Son'? If I am not doing the things my Father does, do not believe me. But if I am doing them, then even if you will not believe me, believe the things I do, in order that you may realize and learn that the Father is in union with me, and I am in union with the Father."

Jesus answered, "The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls on the ground and dies, it remains just one grain. But if it dies, it yields a great harvest. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life. read more.
If anyone serves me, he must follow me, and wherever I am found, my servant must be also. If anyone serves me, my Father will show him honor. Now my heart is troubled; what am I to say? Father, save me from this trial! And yet it was for this very purpose that I have come to this trial. Father, honor your own name!" Then there came a voice from the sky, "I have honored it, and I will honor it again!" The crowd of bystanders heard it and said it was thunder. Others said, "It was an angel speaking to him!" Jesus answered, "It was not for my sake that the voice came, but for yours.

For who is there that is victorious over the world except the man who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? It was he, Jesus Christ himself, who came in water and in blood; not in water only, but in water and in blood. The Spirit also testifies to this, for the Spirit is truth. For there are three that testify to it, read more.
the Spirit, the water, and the blood, and the three are at one. If we accept the testimony of men, the testimony of God is stronger still; for the value of God's testimony lies in this, that he has testified to his Son.
