Matthew 17:1-8 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Jesus’ Glorious Transfiguration
17 Six days later Jesus took Peter and the two brothers, Jacob and John, and hiked up a high mountain to be alone. 2 Then Jesus’ appearance was dramatically altered. A radiant light as bright as the sun poured from his face. And his clothing became luminescent—dazzling like lightning.[a] He was transfigured[b] before their very eyes. 3 Then suddenly, Moses and Elijah appeared,[c] and they spoke with Jesus.
5 But while Peter was still speaking, a bright radiant cloud spread over them, enveloping them all.[f] And God’s voice suddenly spoke from the cloud, saying, “This is my dearly loved Son, the constant focus of my delight.[g] Listen to him!”[h]
6 The three disciples were dazed[i] and terrified by this phenomenon, and they fell facedown to the ground. 7 But Jesus walked over and touched them, saying, “Get up and stop being afraid.” 8 When they finally opened their eyes and looked around, they saw no one else there but Jesus.[j]
