Voice of Jesus

Come with me, Peter, James and John, up this mountain

Peter

Well, James, now we are at the top. What will Jesus do up here?

James

Oh, look! His face is shining!

Prompter & Echoes

Like the sun!

Peter

His garments are glowing, as white as light!

James

Oh, look! Two men are talking with Jesus!
They are Moses and Elijah!

Peter

Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will make three tents,
one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”

James

Quiet, Peter!
A voice is coming from the bright cloud overshadowing us.

Peter

It was the voice of God! He said,
“This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.
Listen to him!”

Prompter & Echoes

Heed what he says!

Peter

I fall facedown, terrified!
Then I feel a hand raising me.

Voice of Jesus

Get up.

Prompter & Echoes

Do not be afraid!

James

Wow! Look Peter, no one is here now except Jesus.

Voice of Jesus

Come, let us go back down the mountain.
Tell the vision to no one, until the Son of Man has risen from the dead.

Prompter & Echoes

He will rise from the dead!
