    Luke 9:28-36 Transfiguration

    Why is the departure of Israel from Egypt referred when Moses and Elijah are speaking with the Lord Jesus?

    How might this explain why it is Moses and Elijah who appears with the Lord Jesus in the transfiguration?

    In other Old Testament books is the departure of Israel from Egypt applied to the future Messiah?

    The Transfiguration isrecorded inLuke 9:28-36.

    What follows are selected English versions of Luke 9:31.

    Most English versions use the word “departure” to translate the underlined word “exodus” in the following versions. Actually, these selected versions are using the transliteration of the Greek word. It is the same Greek word used to name the Book of Exodus.


    They appeared in ·heavenly glory [L glory], talking about his departure [C Greek: exodos,perhaps recalling the Exodus from Egypt, and referring to Jesus’ death, resurrection, and ascension] which he ·would soon bring about [L was about to fulfill/accomplish] in Jerusalem.


    They appeared in glorious splendor and spoke of his exodus, which he was soon to accomplish in Yerushalayim.


    who appeared in glory and spoke of his exodus that he was going to accomplish in Jerusalem.


    They were glorious to see. And they were speaking about his exodus from this world, which was about to be fulfilled in Jerusalem.


    About eight days after saying this, he climbed the mountain to pray, taking Peter, John, and James along. While he was in prayer, the appearance of his face changed and his clothes became blinding white. At once two men were there talking with him. They turned out to be Moses and Elijah—and what a glorious appearance they made! They talked overhis exodus, the one Jesus was about to complete in Jerusalem.
