The transfiguration of Jesus on a mountain (probably Hermon) near Caesarea Philippi

Mat 17:1-8

1 And after six days Jesus takes with him Peter, and James, and John, his brother, and makes them go up with him into a high mountain by themselves.
2 And he was changed in form before them; and his face was shining like the sun, and his clothing became white as light.
3 And Moses and Elijah came before their eyes, talking with him.
4 And Peter made answer and said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if you will let me, I will make here three tents, one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.
5 While he was still talking, a bright cloud came over them: and a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my dearly loved Son, with whom I am well pleased; give ear to him.
6 And at these words the disciples went down on their faces in great fear.
7 And Jesus came and put his hand on them and said, Get up and have no fear.
8 And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one, but Jesus only.

Mar 9:2-8

2 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and made them go up with him into a high mountain by themselves: and he was changed in form before them:
3 And his clothing became shining, very white, as no cleaner on earth would make it.
4 And there came before them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.
5 And Peter said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tents; one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.
6 Because he was not certain what to say, for they were in great fear.
7 And a cloud came over them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my dearly loved Son, give ear to him.
8 And suddenly looking round about, they saw no one any longer, but Jesus only with themselves.

Luk 9:28-36

28 And about eight days after he had said these things, he took Peter and John and James with him and went up into the mountain for prayer.
29 And while he was in prayer, his face was changed and his clothing became white and shining.
30 And two men, Moses and Elijah, were talking with him;
31 Who were seen in glory and were talking of his death which was about to take place in Jerusalem.
32 Now Peter and those who were with him were overcome with sleep: but when they were fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men who were with him.
33 And when they were about to go away from him, Peter said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah: having no knowledge of what he was saying.
34 And while he said these things, the shade of a cloud came over them, and they were full of fear when they went into the cloud.
35 And there was a voice from the cloud saying, This is my Son, the man of my selection; give ear to him.
36 And after the voice was gone they saw that Jesus was by himself. And they kept quiet, and said nothing at that time to anyone of the things which they had seen.
