Matthew 17:9-13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

As they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, “Do not tell the vision[a] to anyone until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.” 10 [b]Then the disciples asked him, “Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?” 11 He said in reply,[c] “Elijah will indeed come and restore all things; 12 but I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him but did to him whatever they pleased. So also will the Son of Man suffer at their hands.” 13 [d]Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them of John the Baptist.

The Healing of a Boy with a Demon.[e]

Footnotes:

  1. 17:9 The vision: Matthew alone uses this word to describe the transfiguration. Until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead: only in the light of Jesus’ resurrection can the meaning of his life and mission be truly understood; until then no testimony to the vision will lead people to faith.
  2. 17:10 See notes on Mt 3:4; 16:14.
  3. 17:11–12 The preceding question and this answer may reflect later controversy with Jews who objected to the Christian claims for Jesus that Elijah had not yet come.
  4. 17:13 See Mt 11:14.
  5. 17:14–20 Matthew has greatly shortened the Marcan story (Mk 9:14–29). Leaving aside several details of the boy’s illness, he concentrates on the need for faith, not so much on the part of the boy’s father (as does Mark, for Matthew omits Mk 9:22b–24) but on that of his own disciples whose inability to drive out the demon is ascribed to their little faith (Mt 17:20).
