As they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man has risen from the dead. 10
And His disciples asked Him, Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first? 11
And He answered and said, Elijah is coming and will restore all things; 12
but I say to you that Elijah already came, and they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they wished. So also the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands. 13
Then the disciples understood that He had spoken to them about John the Baptist.
As they were coming down from the mountain, He gave them orders not to relate to anyone what they had seen, until the Son of Man rose from the dead. 10
They seized upon that statement, discussing with one another what rising from the dead meant. 11
They asked Him, saying, Why is it
that the scribes say that Elijah must come first? 12
And He said to them, Elijah does first come and restore all things. And yet
how is it written of the Son of Man that He will suffer many things and be treated with contempt? 13
But I say to you that Elijah has indeed come, and they did to him whatever they wished, just as it is written of him.
