May 29 As they descended the mountain, Jesus ordered them to tell nobody what they had seen, until the Son of man had risen from the dead. So they kept it secret, but discussed among themselves what “rising from the dead” meant. They asked him, “Why do our teachers say Elijah must first come?”

Jesus replied, “Truly, Elijah comes first to restore all things. I say Elijah has already come, unknowingly they treated him as they pleased, as it is written. Similarly, the Son of man will suffer much5 and be rejected.” Then the disciples understood that he was talking about John the Baptist.
