Beings how Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus during the transfiguration where are they now? Also, where is this elaborated at in the bible.
We see this in
, some may believe Moses and Elijah were in heaven and came and appeared, Jesus took Peter, James, and John up to the mountain, He was transfigured before them and Moses and Elijah appeared talking to Jesus.
If we take note of what Matthew writes, "And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. 9And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead"
It was a vision and a confirmation from God to these three that Jesus is the Son of God and the Law and Prophets will be fulfilled with the death and resurrection of Jesus.
another place that shows things were hidden from the apostles until the Holy Spirit brought remembrance to them of what things Jesus had told them,
One other thing, Jesus is the Firstfruits of them that slept,
1 Corinthians 15:20
. Jesus was the first to be raised from death
. No one has ascended to heaven,
and no one will overcome death until Jesus returns on the day of redemption,
In my understanding of scripture to us today, Moses and Elijah are awaiting the resurrection, with no knowledge or time in death, to them, it has already come.
