Matthew, Mark, and Luke, with some differences of detail, all record what we call the transfiguration. After Peter’s great confession of faith, and immediately before the final journey south to Jerusalem, Jesus takes Peter, James and John up a mountain and is transfigured as a sign of his divine glory. His clothes become shining white and Moses and Elijah appear with him showing endorsement by Law and Prophets of Jesus’ mission, and the divine voice from the cloud of God’s glory confirms the status of Jesus and approves his coming journey to Jerusalem.
