Matthew 17

1 And after six days Jesus takes with him Peter and James and John his brother, and privately brings them up into a high mountain. 2 And he was transfigured before them, and his face shined like the sun, and his garments became white like the light. 3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, speaking together with him.
4 Now Peter answered and said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here; if you will it. Should we make* three tabernacles here; one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah? 5 While he is still speaking, behold, a radiant cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am delighted; hear* him!
6 And after the disciples heard it, they fell upon their face, and were extremely afraid. 7 And Jesus came near and touched them and said, Arise* and do* not be afraid. 8 Now having lifting up their eyes, they saw no one except Jesus only. 9 And while coming-down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, Tell the vision to no one, until the Son of Man should rise* from the dead.
10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Therefore why do the scribes say that it is essential for Elijah to come first? 11 Now Jesus answered and said to them, Indeed Elijah comes first and will be restoring all things. 12 But I am saying to you*, that Elijah already came, and they did not recognize him, but did to him as many things as they wished. So the Son of Man is also about to suffer by them. 13 Then the disciples understood that he spoke to them concerning John the Immerser*.

{Mar 9:14-29 & Mat 17:14-21 & Luk 9:37-43 Region of Caesarea Philippi.} 14 And having gone to the crowd, a man came near to him, kneeling down to him, 15 and saying, Lord, show-mercy to my son, because he is epileptic, and suffers evilly; for* he often falls into the fire and often into the water. 16 And I brought him to your disciples, and they were not able to heal him.
17 But Jesus answered and said, O unbelieving and perverse generation, until when will I be with you*? Until when will I tolerate you*? Bring* him here to me. 18 And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon went out of him, and the boy was healed from that hour. 19 Then the disciples came near to Jesus privately and said, Why were we not able to cast it out?
20 Now Jesus said to them, Because of your* unbelief. For* assuredly I am saying to you*, If you* have faith like a kernel of a mustard-seed, you* will say to this mountain, Go-away from here to over there, and it will go-away, and nothing will be impossible for you*. 21 But this variety of demon does not travel out except in prayer and fasting. {Mar 9:30-32 & Mat 17:22-23 & Luk 9:43-45 Return to Galilee.} 22 Now while conducting work in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of Man is about to be given up into the hands of men; 23 and they will be killing him, and he will be arisen in the third day. And they were extremely sorrowful.

{Mat 17:24-27 Capernaum Sept. 29 AD; no parallel.} 24 Now they went to Capernaum, those who receive the four-denarii tax came to Peter and said, Does your* teacher not pay the four-denarii tax?
25 He says, Yes. And when he entered into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, What do you think, Simon? The kings of the earth, from whom do they receive taxes or tribute? From their sons or from the aliens? 26 And Peter says to him, From aliens.
Jesus said to him, Consequently*, the sons are free. 27 But in order that we might not offend them, after you have traveled to the sea and cast a fishhook, and lift out the fish that ascends first, and after you have opened its mouth, you will find a four-denarii coin. After you have taken it out, give it to them in exchange-for you and me.
{Mar 9:33-50 & Mat 18:1-14 & Luk 9:46-50 Sept. 29 AD.}
