2 And his vestments became radiant and exceedingly white like snow, with such a brilliance as no fuller on earth is able to achieve.
3 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses; and they were speaking with Jesus.
4 And in response, Peter said to Jesus: "Master, it is good for us to be here. And so let us make three tabernacles, one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
5 For he did not know what he was saying. For they were overwhelmed by fear.
6 And there was a cloud overshadowing them. And a voice came from the cloud, saying: "This is my most beloved Son. Listen to him."
7 And immediately, looking around, they no longer saw anyone, except Jesus alone with them.
8 And as they were descending from the mountain, he instructed them not to relate to anyone what they had seen, until after the Son of man will have risen again from the dead.
9 And they kept the word to themselves, arguing about what "after he will have risen from the dead" might mean.
10 And they questioned him, saying: "Then why do the Pharisees and the scribes say that Elijah must arrive first?"
11 And in response, he said to them: "Elijah, when he will arrive first, shall restore all things. And in the manner that it has been written about the Son of man, so must he suffer many things and be condemned.
12 But I say to you, that Elijah also has arrived, (and they have done to him whatever they wanted) just as it has been written about him."
13 And approaching his disciples, he saw a great crowd surrounding them, and the scribes were arguing with them.
1 Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not apparent.
2 For this reason, the ancients were given testimony.
3 By faith, we understand the world to be fashioned by the Word of God, so that the visible might be made by the invisible.
4 By faith, Abel offered to God a much better sacrifice than that of Cain, through which he obtained testimony that he was just, in that God offered testimony to his gifts. And through that sacrifice, he still speaks to us, though he is dead.
5 By faith, Enoch was transferred, so that he would not see death, and he was not found because God had transferred him. For before he was transferred, he had testimony that he pleased God.
6 But without faith, it is impossible to please God. For whoever approaches God must believe that he exists, and that he rewards those who seek him.
7 By faith, Noah, having accepted an answer about those things which were not yet seen, being afraid, fashioned an ark for the salvation of his house. Through the ark, he condemned the world, and was established as the heir of the justice that occurs through faith.
