Jesus is transfigured in the presence of Peter, James and John. Elijah and Moses appear. Peter offers to build three tabernacles. A voice from the clouds says, “This is my Son. Hear him!” Jesus tells his disciples not to tell anyone until he has risen from the dead. Elijah will come at the second coming – although he was not heeded the first time round. The disciples are unable to cast out a demon from a possessed boy. Jesus predicts his death and resurrection, but the disciples do not understand. The disciples argue about who is the greatest. Jesus says that he who desires to be first shall be last of all. Whoever receives little children receives Jesus, and whoever receives Jesus receives the Father. Whoever is not against us is on our side. If you hand causes you to sin, cut it off. Everyone will be seasoned with fire, and every sacrifice seasoned with salt.
