Favorite Bible Passage For September 16

http://bible.us/Mark9.2.AMP Six days after this, Jesus took with Him Peter and James and
John and led them up on a high mountain apart by themselves. And He was transfigured
before them and became resplendent with divine
brightness. And His garments became glistening, intensely white, as no
fuller (cloth dresser, launderer) on earth could bleach them. And Elijah appeared [there] to them, accompanied by Moses, and
they were holding [a protracted] conversation with Jesus. And Peter took up the conversation, saying, Master, it is good
and suitable and beautiful for us
to be here. Let us make three booths (tents)–one for You and one for Moses and one
for Elijah. For he did not [really] know what to say, for they were in a
violent fright (aghast with dread). And a cloud threw a shadow upon them, and a voice came out of
the cloud, saying, This is My Son, the [most dearworthy] Beloved One. Be constantly
listening to and obeying Him! And looking around, they suddenly no longer saw anyone with
them except Jesus only. And as they were coming back down the mountain, He admonished
and expressly ordered them to tell no one what they had
seen until the Son of Man should rise from among the dead. So they carefully and faithfully kept
the matter to themselves, questioning and disputing with one
another about what rising from among the dead meant. And they asked Him, Why do the scribes say that it is
necessary for Elijah to come first? And He said to them, Elijah, it is true, does come first to
restore all things and set them to rights. And how is it
written of the Son of Man that He will suffer many things and
be utterly despised and be treated with contempt and rejected? But I tell you that Elijah has already come, and [people] did
to him whatever they desired, as it is written of him.
