“And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him” (Matthew 17:3).

As representatives of the Law (which necessitates our need for a savior) and the prophets (which anticipate the coming of a Messiah), the presence of Moses and Elijah affirms to Jesus that the path to Jerusalem is, indeed, the fulfillment of the eternal purposes of God. Thus, the transfiguration experience of Jesus affirms for us, as well, that the path of faithful living that we have committed to Him is not in vain.
