[81] The 3 Tents of the Transfiguration

There are 3 parallel accounts of the transfiguration, in Matthew, Mark, Luke. There is also a reference to the transfiguration in 2Peter. 

In the event symbolic meaning of all 3 accounts the tent of Jesus is for the 1NC Kings in TCC1, the tent of Elijah is the tent of John the baptist, who was Elijah1, it is the home for the sons of the 1EC, who comprise TCC1. The tent of Moses is the tent of the leader of that church, which is the tent of FDS1. Peter was the first president of FDS1.

The 3 gospel accounts in their greater meaning represent full transfiguration visions to the 3 further true churches of FDS2, FDS3 and FDS4. Not sure if 2Peter refers to Laodicea or to the second part of FDS2.

Matthew 17:1-8 and Mark 9:2-8 and Luke 9:28-36 are parallel (and Matthew 17:9-13 and Mark 9:9-13). But 2 Peter 1:17 is not. 

The event symbolism of the transfiguration is unveiling the whole plan of Christianity. Moses preceded John the Baptist who preceded Jesus. And people went from the law covenant, the tent of Moses, to the first Elijah covenant (1EC), the tent of Elijah who was possessed by Gabriel as was John the baptist, whose water baptism was the cleansing for entrance into the 1EC, to the tent of Jesus, the first New Covenant the 1NC. For this was the journey that Peter John and James made themselves.

John died as the evening lamb of Jesus ministry, the first of the two lambs, he died at night. He actually died either 62 weeks or 69 weeks of Daniel9 after Jesus, the word, went forth to restore and rebuild Jerusalem pursuant to his baptism on 29Tishri10. So this puts his sacrifice on 30Chislev24 or 49 days later on 30Shebat13. The transfiguration occurred after this. Moses was alive in Eden3. Elijah was alive too being non adamic. So The 3 men got to see Moses and Elijah and Jesus, all of whom were living, having a chat in the literal meaning. 

But there are 3 parallel accounts of the transfiguration so there are 3 greater meanings of it (then there is one further word symbolic meaning to Matthew which we think relates to Laodicea or possibly to the second part of FDS2). These work as follows...

By covenant we mean church for that covenant according to context.

1 And after 6 days, Jesus took along Peter [named so represents saints - 1NC saints] and James [2NC Kings] and John [2NC Lords], his brother [in the 2NC] and brought them up into a lofty mountain [church administration, FDS3] privately.
2
And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone as [wV] the sun [the kingdom is far more enlightening that this system, which shines as the moon], and his outer-garments became white as [wV] the light [this is the preaching work of the unsanctified JWs].
3
And, look! there appeared to them Moses [FDS3] and Elijah [3EC], conversing with him [Jesus did not speak only to Moses who then spoke to Elijah!! Jesus spoke to both the FDS and the church].
4
Responding Peter [1NC saints] said to Jesus: Lord [Russell was Lord of the 1NC saints and Jesus' representative] it is fine for us to be here. If you wish, I will erect 3 tents here, one for you [1NC covenant] and one for Moses [FDS3] and one for Elijah [3EC].
5
While he was yet speaking, look! a bright cloud [representing the holy spirit or God's acceptance of a temple] overshadowed them, and, look! a voice out of the cloud, saying: This is the Son, of me, the beloved, in whom I have delighted, listen to him [Listen to Russell, the mediator of the 3EC, and the last half apostle of the 1NC, please!].
6
And hearing [this] the disciples fell upon their face and became-fearful very much
7
And Jesus approached and touching them said: Get up and be not fearful.
8
But having raised their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus himself only [the other two water baptism covenants, 3EC and 4EC terminate once those churches end and we are left with the everlasting spirit covenant, the ARC, mediated by Jesus, the eternal father of the saints] (Matthew 17).

9 And [epi - at the time] of their descending out of the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying: Tell the vision to no one until the Son of the man is raised up from the dead [ones].
10
However, the disciples inquired of him, saying: Why, therefore, are the scribes saying that it is necessary for Elijah to come first?
11
The [one] answering said: Elijah, indeed, is coming and will restore all [things].
12
However, I am saying to you that Elijah has already come and they did not recognize him but did with him as many [things] as they wanted. Thus also the Son of the man is about to suffer by them.
13
Then the disciples perceived that he spoke to them about [peri] John, the Baptist (Matthew 17).

2 And after 6 days, Jesus took along Peter [1NC saints] and James [ELC saints] and John [HLC saints], and brought them up into a lofty mountain [FDS2] to themselves alone. And he was transfigured before them,
3
and his outer-garments became an exceedingly glistening white, which [oioV] a bleacher upon the earth would not thus be able to whiten [the outer garments are the unsanctified ones. These are declared righteous in the flesh and sealed into the CRC if they were also in TCC1. Jesus' face is not mentioned because it did not shine in this ELC then HLC church. The 1NC saints had no authority in FDS2 at all].
4
Also, Elijah with Moses appeared to them, and they were conversing with Jesus.
5
And responding Peter said to Jesus: Rabbi [Paul was a Jewish instructor and therefore a Rabbi and was Jesus' representative] it is fine for us to be here, and let us erect 3 tents, one for you [1NC] and one for Moses [FDS2] and one for Elijah [2EC].
6
Because, he did not know how he should respond [the 1NCs did not know how to respond to FDS2 initially], since they became frightened.
7
And a cloud came to be, overshadowing them, and a voice came to be out [ek] of the cloud: This is the Son of me, the beloved [pronoun imbalance, but God actually said: My son and my beloved - see 2 Peter 1:17] listen to him [Paul, the mediator of the ELC, listen to him please!].
8
And suddenly, they looked around and saw no one with them any longer, except Jesus alone [FDS2 and the 2EC ended and mankind was just left with Jesus but no true church] (Mark 9).

9 And [epi - at the time] of their going down out [ek] of the mountain, he ordered them to relate to nobody what they saw, until after the Son of the man had risen from the dead [ones].
10
And they remembered the word, discussing among themselves what this rising from the dead [ones] was.
11
And they began to question him, saying: Why are the scribes saying that Elijah must come first?
12
But the [one] said to them: Elijah indeed comes first and restores all [things]; but how is it that it is written about the Son of the man that he should suffer many [things] and be treated contemptuously?
13
But I say to you that Elijah, has already come, and they did to him as many [things] as they wanted, just as [kaqwV] it is has been written about him (Mark 9)

28 But it happened approx [wsei] 8 days [as if, or like in the sense of 'approximately', since it was actually 6 days after he told them they would not see death before seeing the Kingdom. 6 days exclusively is 7 days inclusively which is approximately 8 days???] after these words, that he took along Peter [1NC saints] and John [2NC Kings] and James [2NC Lords] and went up up into the mountain [FDS4] to pray.
29
And whilst he was praying, the appearance of his face [became] different
[more humble, since it is now composed of true 1NC reserves who did not know they had been chosen. Peter James and John must have seen this face before in order that it is different.] and his clothing [became] glitteringly white [all of it, the inner garment of the saints and the outer garment of the unsanctified].
30
Also, look! 2 males were conversing with him, who were Moses
[FDS4] and Elijah [4EC].
31
The [ones] appeared in glory and were talking about his departure which he was about to fulfill in Jerusalem [The New Passover of the 1NC reserves?].
32
Now Peter
[1NC reserves] and the [ones] with him [in the Watchtower] were weighed down with sleep; but having awakened fully they saw his glory and the 2 males, the [ones] standing with him.
33
And it happened that whilst these were being separated from him, Peter said to Jesus: Instructor
[Gordon is a teacher and is Jesus' representative] it is fine for us to be here, and let us erect 3 tents, one for you [1NC] and one for Moses [FDS4] and one for Elijah [4EC], not realizing what he was saying [because he was acting as a prophet, he was speaking in a symbolic manner which was inspired by God. He was talking about setting up Zoar.]
34
But when he was saying these [things] a cloud came to be and began to overshadow them. And in their entering into the cloud
[containing the ark for the marriage of the 1NC reserves to Jesus] they became fearful.
35
And a voice came to be out of the cloud, saying: This is my Son, the chosen [one]. Listen to him
[Listen to Gordon please! He is chosen as the mediator of the 2NC, the earthly king of the earthly kings].
36
And in/with the voice occurring, Jesus was found alone. But they became silent and reported to nobody in those days any of what they had seen
[the greater ark and Jesus and the marriage] (Luke 9).

By covenant we mean church for that covenant according to context.

1 And after 6 days, Jesus took along Peter [named so represents saints - 1NC reserves] and James [2NC Kings] and John [2NC Lords], his brother [in the 2NC] and brought them up into a lofty mountain [church administration, FDS4] privately.
2
And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone as [wV] the sun [the kingdom is far more enlightening that this system, which shines as the moon], and his outer-garments became white as [wV] the light [this is the sealing in spirit of the members of Jesus' body, the 1NC saints. They need to leave their slavery to the law of the tent of Moses and enter into the tent of Elijah to be sealed, declared righteous in the spirit, get everlasting life as an angel].
3
And, look! there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, conversing with him [The JWs should speak to the LWs and the 1NC reserves].
4
Responding Peter [saints] said to Jesus: Lord, it is fine for us to be here. If you wish, I will erect 3 tents here, one for you [1NC covenant] and one for Moses [3EC] and one for Elijah [4EC].
5
While he was yet speaking, look! a bright cloud [representing the holy spirit or God's acceptance of a temple] overshadowed them, and, look! a voice out of the cloud, saying: This is the Son, of me, the beloved, in whom I have delighted, listen to him [Listen to Gordon, the mediator of the 2NC please!].
6
And hearing [this] the disciples fell upon their face and became-fearful very much
7
And Jesus approached and touching them said: Get up and be not fearful.
8
But having raised their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus himself only [the other two water baptism covenants, 3EC and 4EC terminate once those churches end and we are left with the everlasting spirit covenant, the ARC, mediated by Jesus, the eternal father of the saints] (Matthew 17).

9 And [epi - at the time] of their descending out of the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying: Tell the vision to no one until the Son of the man is raised up from the dead [ones].
10
However, the disciples inquired of him, saying: Why, therefore, are the scribes saying that it is necessary for Elijah to come first?
11
The [one] answering said: Elijah, indeed, is coming and will restore all [things].
12
However, I am saying to you that Elijah has already come and they did not recognize him but did with him as many [things] as they wanted. Thus also the Son of the man is about to suffer by them.
13
Then the disciples perceived that he spoke to them about [peri] John, the Baptist (Matthew 17).

16 For it was not by following artfully contrived myths that we acquainted you with the power and presence of our Lord, Jesus Christ, but by having become eyewitnesses of the magnificence of that [one].
17
For he received honour and glory beside God, [ the] Father, [epi - at the time] of [the] voice of the same having been carried to him by the magnificent glory: This is my son, my beloved, [pronoun balance] into whom I have delighted.
18
Yes, this [was] the voice we heard carried out of heaven [whilst] we were with him in the holy mountain (2 Peter 1).

2 And after 6 days, Jesus took along Peter [1NC saints] and James [ELC saints] and John [HLC saints], and brought them up into a lofty mountain [FDS2] to themselves alone. And he was transfigured before them,
3
and his outer-garments became an exceedingly glistening white, which [oioV] a bleacher upon the earth would not thus be able to whiten [the angels seal the saints, declaring them righteous in the spirit for everlasting heavenly life].
4
Also, Elijah with Moses appeared to them, and they were conversing with Jesus.
5
And responding Peter said to Jesus: Rabbi, it is fine for us to be here, and let us erect 3 tents, one for you [1NC] and one for Moses [1EC] and one for Elijah [2EC].
6
Because, he did not know how he should respond, since they became frightened.
7
And a cloud came to be, overshadowing them, and a voice came to be out [ek] of the cloud: This is the Son of me, the beloved [pronoun imbalance, but God actually said: My son and my beloved - see 2 Peter 1:17] listen to him [Paul, the mediator of the ELC, listen to him please!].
8
And suddenly, they looked around and saw no one with them any longer, except Jesus alone [the other two water baptism covenants, the 1EC and the 2EC terminate once those churches end and we are left with the everlasting spirit covenant, the ARC, mediated by Jesus, the eternal father of the saints] (Mark 9).

9 And [epi - at the time] of their going down out [ek] of the mountain, he ordered them to relate to nobody what they saw, until after the Son of the man had risen from the dead [ones].
10
And they remembered the word, discussing among themselves what this rising from the dead [ones] was.
11
And they began to question him, saying: Why are the scribes saying that Elijah must come first?
12
But the [one] said to them: Elijah indeed comes first and restores all [things]; but how is it that it is written about the Son of the man that he should suffer many [things] and be treated contemptuously?
13
But I say to you that Elijah, has already come, and they did to him as many [things] as they wanted, just as [kaqwV] it is has been written about him (Mark 9)

28 But it happened approx [wsei] 8 days [as if, or like in the sense of 'approximately', since it was actually 6 days after he told them they would not see death before seeing the Kingdom. 6 days exclusively is 7 days inclusively which is approximately 8 days???] after these words, that he took along Peter [1NC saints] and John [Direct JAC saints] and James [ELC saints] and went up up into the mountain [FDS1] to pray.
29
And whilst he was praying, the appearance of his face [became] different and his clothing [became] glitteringly white.
30
Also, look! 2 males were conversing with him, who were Moses
[Moses] and Elijah [Elijah].
31
The [ones] appeared in glory and were talking about his departure which he was about to fulfill in Jerusalem [Jesus being sacrificed].
32
Now Peter and the [ones] with him were weighed down with sleep; but having awakened fully they saw his glory and the 2 males, the [ones] standing with him.
33
And it happened that whilst these were being separated from him, Peter said to Jesus: Instructor, it is fine for us to be here, and let us erect 3 tents, one for you
[1NC] and one for Moses [Law Covenant] and one for Elijah [1EC], not realizing what he was saying [because he was acting as a prophet, he was speaking in a symbolic manner which was inspired by God].
34
But when he was saying these [things] a cloud came to be and began to overshadow them. And in their entering into the cloud, they became fearful.
35
And a voice came to be out of the cloud, saying: This is my Son, the chosen [one]. Listen to him
[Listen to Jesus please!].
36
And in/with the voice occurring, Jesus was found alone. But they became silent and reported to nobody in those days any of what they had seen (Luke 9).

There have to be 3 threads, because the 3 accounts are certainly parallel and the word 'tent' appears 3 times. So if there were two threads, then tent would only ever mean a canvas temporary accommodation unit. 
Tent (3), Moses (6), Elijah (6), Peter (7), James (3), John (3).

Peter was fully awake 'having awakened fully' (Luke 9:32). So this was not a dream it really happened. And as mentioned above all 3 parties were alive.

It is quite a large realisation that TCC1 had two sanctified groups within it.
