The Transfiguration of Jesus  Mt.17.1-13[ Mt.17.1-13 → ] - Mk.9.2-13, Lk.9.28-36

1SIX DAYS LATER Jesus took Peter and James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain where they were alone; 2and in their presence he was transfigured; his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as the light. 3And they saw Moses and Elijah appear, conversing with him. 4Then Peter spoke: 'Lord,' he said, 'how good it is that we are here! If you wish it, I will make three shelters here, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.' 5While he was still speaking, a bright cloud suddenly overshadowed them, and a voice called from the cloud: 'This is my Son, my Beloved, Or: This is my only Son. on whom my favour rests; listen to him.' 6At the sound of the voice the disciples fell on their faces in terror. 7Jesus then came up to them, touched them, and said, 'Stand up; do not be afraid.' 8And when they raised their eyes they saw no one, but only Jesus.

9On their way down the mountain Jesus enjoined them not to tell anyone of the vision until the Son of Man had been raised from the dead. 10The disciples put a question to him: 'Why then do our teachers say that Elijah must come first?' 11He replied, 'Yes, Elijah will come and set everything right. 12But I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they failed to recognize him, and worked their will upon him; and in the same way the Son of Man is to suffer at their hands.' 13Then the disciples understood that he meant John the Baptist.

The Healing of a Boy with a Demon  Mt.17.14-21 (Mount Hermon)[ Mt.17.14-21 → ] - Mk.9.14-29, Lk.9.37-43

14When they returned to the crowd, a man came up to Jesus, fell on his knees before him, 15and said, 'Have pity, sir, on my son: he is an epileptic and has bad fits, and he keeps falling about, often into the fire, often into water. 16I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him.' 17Jesus answered, 'What an unbelieving and perverse generation! How long shall I be with you? How much longer must I endure you? Bring him here to me.' 18Jesus then spoke sternly to the boy; the devil left him, and from that moment he was cured.

19Afterwards the disciples came to Jesus and asked him privately, 'Why could not we cast it out?' 20He answered, 'Your faith is too weak. I tell you this: if you have faith no bigger even than a mustard-seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there!", and it will move; nothing will prove impossible for you.' 21Some manuscripts add: 'But there is no means of casting out this sort but prayer and fasting.'

Jesus again Foretells his Death and Resurrection  Mt.17.22-23 (Mount Hermon)[ Mt.17.22-23 → ] - Mk.9.30-32, Lk.9.43-45

22THEY WERE GOING about together in Galilee when Jesus said to them, 'The Son of Man is to be given up into the power of men, 23and they will kill him; then on the third day he will be raised again.' And they were filled with grief.

Payment of the Temple Tax  Mt.17.24-27 (Capernaum)

24On their arrival at Capernaum the collectors of the temple-tax came up to Peter and asked, 'Does your master not pay temple-tax?' 25'He does', said Peter. When he went indoors Jesus forestalled him by asking, 'What do you think about this, Simon? From whom do earthly monarchs collect tax or toll? From their own citizens, or from aliens?' 26'From aliens', said Peter. 'Why then,' said Jesus, 'the citizens are exempt! 27But as we do not want to cause difficulty for these people, go and cast a line in the lake; take the first fish that comes to the hook, open its mouth, and you will find a silver coin; take that and pay it in; it will meet the tax for us both.'
