mtJesus took Peter, James and John to the top of a mountain to show them who He really was - not just a great prophet, but God's own Son.

Moses, representing the law, and Elijah, representing the prophets, appeared with Jesus, The God's voice singled out Jesus as the long- awaited Messiah who possessed divine authority.  Peter suggested making three shelters( Luke 9,33); he may have been thinking of the Feast of Tabernacles, when shelters were set up to commemorate  the exodus, God's deliverance from slavery in Egypt. He wanted  to keep Moses and Elijah with them to show that real faith is built on three cornerstones: the law, the prophets, and Jesus. But Peter grew in understanding and eventually he would write of Jesus as the "chosen and precious cornerstone" of the church (1 Peter 2,6) (Zondervan)
