ELIJAH  COMES FIRST 

Matt 17  Mark 9    Luke  
9 And as they were coming  9  And as they were coming  
  down the mountain,   down the mountain,  
  Jesus commanded them,   he charged them  
  "Tell no one the vision,   to tell no one what they had seen,  
  until the Son of man   until the Son of man  
  is raised from the dead."   should have risen from the dead.  
    10 So they kept the matter to themselves,  
      questioning  
      what the rising from the dead meant.  
10 And the disciples asked him, 11 And they asked him,  
  "Then why do the scribes say   "Why do the scribes say  
  that first Elijah must come?"   that first Elijah must come?"  
11 He replied, 12 And he said to them,  
  "Elijah does come,   "Elijah does come first  
  and he is to restore all things;   to restore all things;  
 

  

  and how is it written  
 

[see Matt 17:12 below]

  of the Son of man,*  
      that he should suffer* many things  
      and be treated with contempt?  
12 but I tell you 13 But I tell you   
  that Elijah has already come,   that Elijah has come,  
  and they did not know him,   and  
  but did to him    they did to him  
  whatever they pleased.   whatever they pleased,  
       as it is written of him."  
  So also the Son of man will suffer*  

 [see Mark 9:12 above]

 
  at their hands."      
13 Then the disciples understood      
   that he was speaking to them      
  of John the Baptist.
