Elijah Has Already Come

Ever heard such good news that you just couldn't keep it to yourself?

In our passage last week, three of Jesus' closest disciples had an experience: they beheld the transfigured Christ in His pre-incarnate glory. Amazing!

But then came Jesus' next words: "Don't tell anybody." Yikes! What a tough row to hoe!

Well, actually, there is a bit more to it than just that.

If you're able, join us in your copy of God's Word: Matthew 17.9-13.

Matthew 17.9-13 (esv)

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.” 10 And the disciples asked him, “Then why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?” 11 He answered, “Elijah does come, and he will restore all things. 12 But I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they pleased. So also the Son of Man will certainly suffer at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them of John the Baptist.
