In 2 Kings 2:1-14, the prophet Elijah prepares to pass on his mantle to his successor, Elisha, as they journey together. Elisha steadfastly demonstrates his commitment, refusing to leave Elijah's side until he receives a double portion of his spirit. Mark 9:2-9 showcases the transfiguration of Jesus, where he reveals his divine glory to three disciples, Peter, James, and John, on a mountaintop. This powerful event provides a glimpse of Jesus' true nature and reaffirms his role as the long-awaited Messiah.
