The Transfiguration Shows That Jesus Has Fulfilled (and thus replaced) The Law and the Prophets

In Their Vision, Peter, James, And John See Jesus Standing With Moses And Elijah (Elias). Then Moses And Elijah Disappear, Leaving Jesus Only.

By this vision, God tells us that Jesus alone has now replaced and supplanted the Law and the Prophets. Moses represents the Law; Elijah represents the Prophets.

If you have any gift whatsoever to understand visions, this is the ONLY meaning of this vision!

Also, this vision is given THREE TIMES, so its importance cannot be overstated.

                 The Transfiguration Of Jesus
      Matthew 17:1-9, Mark 9:2-10, Luke 9:28-36 (RSV)
   Matthew 17:1-9
   1
          And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John
          his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart.
   2
          And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like
          the sun, and his garments became white as light.
   3
          And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Eli'jah, talking
          with him.
   4
          And Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, it is well that we are here; if
          you wish, I will make three booths here, one for you and one
          for Moses and one for Eli'jah."
   5
          He was still speaking, when lo, a bright cloud overshadowed
          them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my beloved Son,
          with whom I am well pleased; listen to him."
   6
          When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces, and
          were filled with awe.
   7
          But Jesus came and touched them, saying, "Rise, and have no
          fear."
   8
          And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus
          only.
   9
          And as they were coming down the mountain, Jesus commanded
          them, "Tell no one the vision, until the Son of man is raised
          from the dead."
          
   Revised Standard Version (RSV)
          
   Mark 9:2-10
   2
          And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and
          John, and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves; and
          he was transfigured before them,
   3
          and his garments became glistening, intensely white, as no
          fuller on earth could bleach them.
   4
          And there appeared to them Eli'jah with Moses; and they were
          talking to Jesus.
   5
          And Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is well that we are here;
          let us make three booths, one for you and one for Moses and one
          for Eli'jah."
   6
          For he did not know what to say, for they were exceedingly
          afraid.
   7
          And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the
          cloud, "This is my beloved Son; listen to him."
   8
          And suddenly looking around they no longer saw any one with
          them but Jesus only.
   9
          And as they were coming down the mountain, he charged them to
          tell no one what they had seen, until the Son of man should
          have risen from the dead.
   10
          So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what the
          rising from the dead meant.
          
   Revised Standard Version (RSV)
          
   Luke 9:28-36
   28
          Now about eight days after these sayings he took with him Peter
          and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray.
   29
          And as he was praying, the appearance of his countenance was
          altered, and his raiment became dazzling white.
   30
          And behold, two men talked with him, Moses and Eli'jah,
   31
          who appeared in glory and spoke of his departure, which he was
          to accomplish at Jerusalem.
   32
          Now Peter and those who were with him were heavy with sleep,
          and when they wakened they saw his glory and the two men who
          stood with him.
   33
          And as the men were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus,
          "Master, it is well that we are here; let us make three booths,
          one for you and one for Moses and one for Eli'jah" --not
          knowing what he said.
   34
          As he said this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they
          were afraid as they entered the cloud.
   35
          And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, my
          Chosen; listen to him!"
   36
          And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they
          kept silence and told no one in those days anything of what
          they had seen.
          
Blessings to you in Jesus Christ our Lord.
